Colombia in Park Slope, taking over the former Pollio space on Fifth between Fifth and Sixth, opened their doors to the neighborhood for the first time today. Owners Hugo and Gloria Juarez have created a menu of traditional Colombian specialties, and the menu looks impressive, with a couple surprises.
Here are some photos of their menu:
And the daily specials:
Appetizers include the traditional variety of arepas and empanadas, as well as some delicious-sounding soups (Might have to drop by tomorrow for the Sancocho de Gallina, or hen stew). Entrees include a wide variety of grilled meats and seafood, including... horse? Don't be alarmed: a call to the restaurant clarifies that it's not actual horsemeat; that's just what they call that particular preparation of steak in Colombia.
Colombia in Park Slope, 376 5th Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215. 718-369-2020.
