The crew behind Mariscos El Submarino, the fast-casual Mexican seafood restaurant that opened in Jackson Heights in 2021, has struck again. For their latest opus, Mitica, located in Greenpoint, they have broadened their culinary scope to include a handful of meat-based dishes, among them a tomahawk steak at $85 and a braised pork shank.
But the emphasis is still clearly on seafood. Their vaunted aguachile — shrimp cured in lime juice — is numbered among the offerings, served with either a negro or roja sauce. An order for taco gobernador brings you face to face with a lightly charred tortilla oozing fragrant Chihuahua cheese and topped with bite-size morsels of lobster.
The house logo is an illustration of an unidentified figure grappling with the devil captioned “meanings and myths.”
Mitica, 222 Franklin Street (at Green St.), Brooklyn, 347-384-2422.
