Friends and readers often ask me how I choose restaurants to review. Some are recommendations from friends or Jason (the editor); while others are places I have eaten at before and want to tell you about. In the case of Erizo de Bar, I have known it since its previous incarnation as Pollito Café, where I have had some of the tastiest brunches in town. I also wrote about Pollito for another publication back in the summer. I like their philosophy of using local organic produce wherever possible and changing their menu seasonally.
