Pequena, the tiny (duh) but delicious Mexican eatery in Fort Greene will open a second location on Vanderbilt Avenue, just south of Atlantic!
The restaurant will open in place of the Barrette bar, which just closed recently on Vanderbilt (at Bergen) in Prospect Heights. The owners are behind the local empire responsible for the original Pequena, Maggie Brown, Olea and Moe's.
Not sure when it will be opening (I actually called them to ask and the woman who answered said, "I have no idea!"), but they have already painted the outside yellow. Here's hoping they'll be open before summer is over.
Technically Prospect Heights, but still walkable for the southern part of the neighborhood.
(Thanks, Russell, for this tip!)
