Brooklyn – Park Slope

Hot-pink walls and brash, cheesy murals belie Barrio"s serious take on regional Mexican flavors. Shrimp ceviche, steeped in a smoky chipotle marinade, arrived plump and succulent. Buttery pan-seared salmon was served with charred tomatillo salsa and a zesty salad of pineapple, jalapeño and cilantro. Pork tenderloin was a bit tough, but it was saved by the richness of its accompanying chile de arbol peanut mole. Forget the standard-issue flan; a side of sweet, airy corn pudding will do just fine for dessert.
