Pilar Cuban Eatery: You Say Chorizo, I Say And Then Some


Just seven weeks old and the management at Pilar Cuban Eatery runs a tight ship – one that set sail from Havana, docked in Miami and made final arrival to this bright green outpost on the Clinton Hill/Bed-Stuy line in Brooklyn.

The new Cuban eatery offers weekend dinner specials that dance around traditional favorites like Paella and Chorizo-infused-everything (the Chorizo is made in-house). The patrons are friendly and the service staff is as warm and inviting as the avocado and sun-kissed walls.

For a Brunch visit, our recommendations are the Pork and Beef blended burger dubbed the Fritas Cubana ($12), which can be topped with an egg, but skip adding the cheese. You won’t need any extra condiments on this patty spiced heavily with paprika and garlic and laden with a special house sauce.

To offset the mind-blowing meat explosion served up in the aforementioned burger, share the Avocado and Tomato salad ($10) which is so much more than the title indicates, including gigantic butter beans, pickled vegetables, and a scoop of chopped artichoke salad. This is hands-down the most delicious salad in the neighborhood.

Leave yourself some room for a Sidra (a sparkling, cider-like wine), or the novel Havana Mary ($10), which rivals the traditional bloody mary with a soju wine base and topped with an assortment of pickled veggies and cheese.


  • Havana Mary ($10) to drink
  • The Fritas Cubana ($12) to eat
  • The Avocado and Tomato Salad ($10) to share
  • And of course- a double shot of Bustelo cafecito to get you charged up for your day!

Pilar offers many more tempting options for lunch and dinner, and their menu is highlighted with daily specials. Stop in and be surprised.
