Open for Business: Pinto Express, 447 Seventh Avenue

A smaller outpost of popular West Village Thai restaurant Pinto has opened on Seventh Avenue between 14th and 15th Streets, in the space last occupied by Thai restaurant Fueng Far. 

Pinto Express is a very small space, with only a few seats, so their primary business will be in the form of takeout and delivery (they deliver down to Union Street, west to 4th Avenue, and up to 26th Street). The menu is very similar to that of the larger Manhattan location, which is located on Christopher between Bedford and Bleecker Streets (and is very well-reviewed on Yelp, with many loyal devotees). The reviews are beginning to come in for this place as well, and they are nothing short of stellar, with several claiming that it's up there with the neighborhood's best. 

The noodles in particular seem to be a favorite, with several raving about the Pad Thai, which incorporates smoked tofu and also is available "crispy." The pumpkin curry, PCU noodle, and spicy basil lo mein also appear to be standouts. There's also a solid $8 lunch special. The whole menu can be found here

Pinto Express, 447 7th Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215. 718-788-3610.

Shouldn't that be "up to Union Street" and "down to 26th Street?" Either way I'm excluded, so that makes me sad.

This place is pretty awesome. Point of clarification, Pinto took over the space previously occupied by Thai restaurant Fueng Far (a great improvement). Pomona is next door.

Isnt Watana only a block away? Also a good Thai place, its too bad they couldnt be spaced a little further apart, I hope they dont cut into each others business-Watana does have the advantage of a nice eat in space

Wasn't it Thai Tony's before Feung Far, and then some other Thai place before that? I live on that block and we laugh that every few months they renovate the place with more of the same.

"Pinto" made me excitedly think it was Mexican.

Sigh.

This was where Brawta opened up a take-out stand for a while, right? Small space indeed.

INEEDGOODMEXICANFOOD,

You do not need good Mexican food! Repeat it with me! You. Do. Not. You need pad thai and lots of it. And our neighborhood needs more and more Thai places to serve it up. And for dessert, I just had a crazy thought, but maybe we need more fro yo joints.

I just heard a rumor that, in order to better serve our community, Calexico is going to stuff all of their burritos with curried duck, their beans will be fermented black beans, and all their salsas will be mango-based. Pinto my ass.
