Hecho en Dumbo, started as a pop-up in 2007 in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The popular Manhattan location of Hecho en Dumbo opened in 2010. Chef Danny Mena successfully creates contemporary takes on traditional dishes from Mexico City. This post is about a weekend brunch (with very few vegetarian options) at Hecho en Dumbo in Manhattan.
The Huevos Rancheros Benedictos is a Mexican take on Eggs Benedict – the Hollandaise sauce is influenced by salsa ranchera, while corn biscuits take the place of English muffins. Overall, the dish is nice, but the smokiness of the house-smoked ham is extremely subtle and can easily be missed.
The Torta de Huevo is not to be missed. It’s a breakfast sandwich of scrambled eggs with chorizo and black bean puree (not re-fried beans thankfully!), served on brioche with avocado, melted Chihuahua cheese and fries.
Hecho en Dumbo is the place to go to if you want Mexican-influenced brunch in a very relaxed enviroment in Manhattan!
