Husband-and-wife team Felipe Donnelly and Tamy Rofe's new Latin-American restaurant is now open on DeKalb Avenue. Unlike Cómodo, this spot specializes in food that's cooked over an open flame: Weekends in Bogotá farmhouses inspired the signature dish, Lomo al Trapo beef tenderloin that's wrapped in a wet cloth with salt, and then cooked on a wood-fired grill. Colonia Verde's menu also includes Cómodo's beloved lamb sliders on house-made Brazilian cheese bread, as well as new dishes like coffee-rubbed cochinita, poblano-pesto cavatelli, and banana cake with asado-smoked pecan frosting. The 58-seat restaurant, designed by Fort Greene resident Matthew Maddy (whose work you've seen at Weather Up), has a farmhouse feel, complete with a greenhouse room. Take a look at the space, the menu, and a few of the dishes, straight ahead.
