Shanna Pacifico, formerly of Back Forty and the short-lived Pacifico's Fine Foods, just opened a new restaurant in Greenpoint called Cozinha Latina. The chef is serving a mix of New American and Latin American fare here, with options like fluke ceviche, a shaved collard greens salad, shrimp & yuca stew, grilled piri piri chicken, beer-braised pork shank, and a trotter pancake. The menu features all of the plate sizes: small, medium, and large. Uncle Boons veteran Brett Helms is making the cocktails.

The restaurant sits in the old Red Star Bar space on the corner of Greenpoint Avenue and West Street. Check out the dinner menu and stay tuned for pictures early next week. And if you happen to stop by, let us know what you think.
