Profile

This amiable Bay Ridge haunt confidently zigzags between Spain and Mexico on its menu, from citrus-squirted calamari to cheesy chimichangas. The comfortably faded dining room evokes Spain à la Don Quijote: A helmeted conquistador holds aloft a globe of light, while copper pots and lacy fans hang on the whitewashed walls. In the vine-strung outdoor patio, it’s Viva México, with drying corn husks and brightly colored blankets. Longtime chef Miguel Garcia was plucked to spearhead sister restaurant Las Ramblas in Manhattan, but his savvy, Spain-Mex formula is carried out with gusto here. The guacamole is prepared at your table: The server deftly scoops out the avocado and mashes it in a volcanic stone mortar, asking “¿Pica o no pica?” (“Spicy or not?”), then adding chopped jalapeños accordingly. Galician-style octopus arrives tender and pale-pink, dusted with paprika. The striped bass à la Veracruzano reveals a graceful pas de deux between the two cuisines, with dark olives and a sunset-orange, nutty achiote sauce. Casa Pepe’s longevity, though, may well stem from knowing how to throw a proper fiesta: Generations of Brooklynites have celebrated their birthdays here, with jugs of sangria and a giant sombrero for the guest of honor. Olé!
