Hecho en Dumbo began in as a pop-up operating several nights a week out of a local café in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Chef Danny Mena's menu of antojitos, or "little cravings," features refined rustic Mexican staples and contemporary Mexico City cuisine. Derived from the official "Hecho en Mexico" seal, the restaurant's name speaks to the authenticity of the cuisine, the local sourcing of organic and sustainable ingredients, and the degree to which fundamental components of Mexican gastronomy – breads, tortillas, salsas, and even cheeses – are made fresh in-house. In a broader sense, the aim of Hecho en Dumbo is to celebrate the contemporary, cosmopolitan culture (and counter culture) of Mexico's vibrant urban centers.

The short rib tacos that I ordered were horrible. It was a bone, two flat tortillas, and a bunch of undercooked pieces of steak. Far from appetizing. Was there for Valentine’s Day and it was awful.

Hecho en Dumbo is one of our regular restaurants when in the area of The Public Theater or Cooper Union. Great Mexico City cuisine and friendly service (albeit sometimes a bit slow).

We usually start with the guacamole and the queso fundido with roasted poblano peppers (very flavorful but not spicy although they can adjust that.) Both delicious.

This time we split two other dishes: Flautas de Res (Braised shredded beef rolled into crisp corn tortillas with house-made sour cream, crumbled cheese, lettuce, salsa verde) and a plate of three tacos (we got Tacos de Costilla [Grilled steak short rib with chopped onion & cilantro] and Tacos de Chorizo Verde [Vegan seitan green chorizo, potato, cactus salad.]) Yum!

For dessert we always get the tres leches cake, which is very good although admittedly not the absolute best we've ever had.

They have a good selection of beer - both on tap and bottled. And a modest wine list and full bar.

TIP: Happy Hour starts at 5:00. A selection of regular appetizers are available at very low prices if ordered during happy hour. We get there at 5, order the apps, and then order the rest of dinner when the full kitchen opens at 5:30!

About 1/4 mile from The Public Theater; just about a four-minute walk.

They also do chef's dinners for groups at a section in the back of the restaurant.

Highly recommended.

Overpriced, but very good relatively authentic Mexican food in NOHO... Happy hour specials are its saving grace.

The brunch option, where they bring a bunch of different dishes and you can have as much as you want, is a great option. We had a wonderful time and were very full afterwards. Not crowded, and they let us hang out.

Great value- we ordered a $20 per person tasting menu and had more food than we could handle. Overall, food was good.

The service was inattentive and slow, the food was presented in an unappetizing manner and the flavors were cloyingly sweet. The steak was cubed in tiny pieces so you could not enjoy the flavor and the tuna was over cooked slathered in barbecue sauce. My friend did not know it was tuna. The salad was iceberg lettuce with what tasted like bottled dressing. I will not go back!
