New Union Street Eatery: Palo Santo

A new restaurant called Palo Santo has opened on Union Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenues. Its website is up, though no menu is posted yet. It describes itself as "eclectic Latin cuisine" and takes its name from an evergreen tree.

The following opinion was offered over at the Park Slope Forum:
We ate dinner there Friday night and really enjoyed the meal. The menu's pretty ecelectic, I get the feeling that it will change often. We shared a bunch of Latin-inspired small plates: a quesadilla with cojita, corn-coconut milk soup, seared tuna over a salad of apple and fennel, plantains and a delicious pumpkin bread pudding and key lime pie. The bill came to around $50, not bad! Service was very attentive and the space is lovely inside. They said they are open for breakfast and lunch every day as well. We'll definitely go back.
NEW RESTAURANT BONUS: Wandering on Columbia Street this weekend in that northern corner of Red Hook on the other side of the BQE from Carroll Gardens, we noticed that a space on which we have noticed ongoing work for weeks looks to be opening soon. It's Mazzat Mediterranean Kitchen and Tapas. Looks like it will be a pretty place, at least, from the glimpses we've had of its interior as work went on.
