About this place
Gran Eléctrica, in the heart of DUMBO, offers market-driven and regionally-influenced Mexican cuisine, showcasing a diversity of dishes from across the country. The kitchen's emphasis on keeping its menu rooted in authentic cooking is expressed with ingredients such as fresh hand-pressed tortillas crafted with heirloom corn, house-made crema and queso fresco, and spicy chorizo made on-site. The bar incorporates Mexican flavors and seasonal ingredients as well, with vibrant cocktails that feature tequila and mezcal by small-batch and artisan distillers. As for design, the restaurant boasts wallpaper inspired by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada. And then there's the spacious backyard, situated right underneath the Brooklyn Bridge; in other words: the place to be in the summertime.

Finish off your day at this bar-restaurant with a Mexican food and some drinks. Our Mexican-food-and-nightlife consultant has kind words for the tacos, and the tequila- and mezcal-based cocktails are also popular (and potent). If it’s a nice night, take advantage of the outdoor patio seating beneath…

Gran Electrica is a restaurant in Dumbo that that does great margaritas, delicious tacos (small portions but super tasty) and modern Mexican. Absolutely lovely!
