Report: Fonda opens at 40 Avenue B next Tuesday


Diner's Journal reports that the second location of the Park Slope-based Mexican eatery Fonda opens next Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Per Diner's Journal, Fonda will have "60 seats and a menu of well-crafted, richly flavored regional dishes, including Yucatean shrimp, a Guajillo-style burger and chicken from the north with Chihuahua cheese. Crowd-pleasers like taquitos, flautas, braised pork in adobo sauce, and enchiladas suizas are also featured."

The address has been a carousel of eateries. Last May, the "Global Jewish" restaurant from "Top Chef" alum Nikki Cascone closed after six months. Chabela's and Russo's have been in and out of here in fairly quick succession in recent years.

Attention, locavores, omnivores, urban butchers, backyard beekepers, cheese fanatics, and conspicuous consumers of consuming: your chickens won’t save the world and we don’t want the life story of everything in the menu; we don’t care what you eat--we just want you to lower the volume. Also, please talking about ramps. -- shut up foodies

and
...it’s such a grotesquely privileged discourse for the most part and there’s very little attention paid to the conditions of workers and to the fact that many people don’t have access to good food...
