I know in a lot of the emerging neighborhoods, blogs are the fastest way of providing information to people so I wanted to write you about the Mexican restaurant that opened on Fifth Between 39-40th.
Maria's Bistro Mexicano. You should try it out and if you have any questions about it you can always go directly to the source.

MARIA'S BISTRO MEXICANO at 669 Union Street in Park Slope has opened
its second restaurant at 886 Fifth Ave, in Brooklyn! A culinary
celebration of Mexican flavors, Maria's serves dishes from the avocado
and ceviche loving coastal region of Vera Cruz, the spicy pepper
dishes of Pueblo, to the dark sweet poblano moles of Oaxaca. The
bright warm jewel toned walls and the rich oil paintings induce a
feeling of relaxation, romance and provide an escape from the bustle
of the streets. Owned and run by cousins Eduardo and Freddy Nacipucha
who take pride in preparing recipes daily with all fresh ingredients,
including table side guacamole, Maria's is a treat for any pallet, and
features vegetarian and vegan options. Serving a wide range of salads
provides lighter choices, especially the yummy avocado salad and
ensalada de Jicama Pina with baby lettuce, jicama and pineapple mixed
with a spicy orange dressing. Other authentic Mexican meals that will
warm you belly are the El Molcajete Norteno, grilled sirloin steak
served with heated lava rocks and served with shrimp, cheese,,
cebollitas cambray and poblano peppers or Cazuela de Mariscos Las
Adas, a delicious seafood casserole loaded with mussels, clams,
shrimp, scallops, calamari and octopus. A real treat!!!
In addition to these regional selections, Maria's Bistro Mexicano
serves up classic Mexican-American favorites, including Enchilada
Suiza and vegetarian burritos.
Maria's invites you to bring your own wine or beer but in January they
will be serving up sizzling drink specials to temp your tastes!
If you are dining midday, Maria's offers a $5.95 prefix lunch menu and
they serve up a hearty Huevos Rancheros on the weekends during their
$6.95 prefix brunch.
Located in Sunset Park, Maria's Bistro Mexicano is a quick ride on the
N or the D. Just exit 36th street and walk up to fifth Avenue. It's a
short 5-minute walk from the subway.

Come and take in the tastes and wonders of Mexico!!!
