Regionally-Inspired Mexican Enlisting Local Ingredients

The team behind notable Brooklyn Heights restaurant Colonie arrives in DUMBO with the opening of a new Mexican restaurant: Gran Electrica. Together, owners Tamer Hamawi, Elise Rosenberg, and Emelie Kihlstrom, along with Chef Paolo Peralta offer an authentic and market-driven Mexican menu inspired by travels abroad, particularly traditional Mexican street fare. Creating their take on regionally-influenced Mexican cuisine, the menu will aim to showcase a diversity of dishes from across the country....while keeping their philosophy of using seasonal, sustainable, and local products whenever possible.
Chef Peralta’s emphasis on keeping Gran Electrica’s menu rooted in authentic Mexican cooking and techniques is expressed through items like fresh heirloom corn hand-pressed tortillas and tacos, ceviche, pozole, chile relleno and cochinita pibil.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation

Gran Electrica serves simple, excellent Mexican food and creative cocktails without any gimmicks and a great back patio.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.
