A word from Palo Santo
Tucked in to the ground floor of a brownstone on a tree-lined block of Union Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Palo Santo has developed a loyal following for serving eclectic Latin American cuisine paired with carefully selected South American and local New York State wines. The Greenmarket friendly menu changes daily and a three course prix-fixe is offered seven nights a week.

Enjoy dinner at a romantic table for two in the back dining room or call ahead for a seat at the kitchen counter where the chef serves a nine course tasting menu.

    Everything about our thanksgiving dinner at Palo Santo was fabulous. The food was exquisite, and the staff was super-attentive and very sweet. We had a wonderful dinner, and a wonderful time.

    Been going to Palo Santo for a few years now. Always a perfect dinner or brunch :) Love the seafood dinners and omelettes for brunch.

    This is what a restaurant should be. We had a reservation, and since our table wasn't quite ready (no more than a five minute wait), our waiter immediately brought us all champagne to enjoy while we waited. Food and service the rest of the night was fantastic! Definitely recommend the avocado and corn cake appetizer.

    Palo Santo is a wonderful little restaurant. Food is fresh and inventive. The seafood stew was the best I ever had. Wine list is interesting with some very special bottles. We also enjoyed the soup and the pork. It's a typical small space like most Brooklyn restaurants but the food is excellent and the staff pleasant and helpful.
