Only a Couple of Days Left to Enjoy Dine In Brooklyn!


These past couple of weeks Ms. Blondie has been running the show while I've been off in Colombia visiting Lawman's family and gorging on amazing Colombian food which I'll be blogging up in due course--you will be hungry, you will be jealous, I promise. There aren't a ton of Colombian restaurants in the city with just a few days left to enjoy Dine In Brooklyn and Bogota Bistro, one of my favorite restaurants in Park Slope is definitely worth checking out...

I'm not sure what is being offered for their special Dine-In-Brooklyn menu, but I've always enjoyed whatever I've ordered at Bogotá. I highly recommend their ajiaco, a traditional Colombian soup made from three potatoes with chicken, capers, corn, and topped with avocado and cream. It's very hard to find a good ajiaco in the States because the spice mix needed for the soup isn't readily available and neither are the papas criollas (tiny potatoes native to Colombia) and the ajiaco at Bogota is delicious.

Lawman typically goes for their Bandeja Paisa, which gives you a good sampling of several traditional Colombian foods--skirt steak, pork chicharron, arepa, rice & beans, maduros, avocado and it's topped with a fried egg.

Bogotá Bisto has happy hour all night on Wednesdays with discounts on classic mojitos, caipirinhas, sangrias and margaritas and on all imported latin american beers all of which would pair nicely with the Dine-In Brooklyn deal and might make tomorrow an excellent time to visit.
