When owners Rovi and Yaniv got the chance to open a restaurant on Ave P between Ocean Parkway and East 5th St in Midwood, they knew that the area would hugely benefit from upscale, expertly cooked Italian cuisine. Their motto is “Kosher fine dining – redefined” is evidently true when you walk into the spacious, sophisticatedly designed restaurant. A curtain of silver beads cascade from the chandelier, perfectly complimenting the turquoise and shimmering silver interior. The elegance displayed in the restaurant shows up on the plates of Executive Chef Lior Hachmon as well. Since graduating with honors from celebrated culinary institutions both in France and Israel, Chef Hachmon has worked in numerous award-winning restaurants in Israel and New York.
Don’t let the name Pescada fool you. Opened in February 2015, this spacious and brightly decorated restaurant boasts a full Italian menu. While they do have truly excellent fish entrees, the appetizers, pastas, pizzas, salads and delectable desserts certainly hold their own on the menu. The Pumpkin Carpaccio appetizer is already famous – a beautifully plated dish of thinly sliced butternut squash with crushed pistachios, shredded feta cheese, pomegranate seeds, olive oil, sea salt, and topped with micro greens. The Tropical Salad will take you away to an island in the sun with a distinctive mix of arugula, romaine hearts and mixed greens, with roasted beets, mango, pomegranate seeds and roasted walnuts, tossed with a honey orange vinaigrette, served with fried golden medallions of goat cheese. But the star of the menu is the sixteen-item fish section. The Surprise Salmon, a marinated, seasoned grilled salmon topped with a tropical mango and pineapple salsa is the perfect blend of spicy and sweet. The Catalonian Sea Bass is also highly recommended, served with a creamy red pepper emulsion, combined with a lemon-asparagus sauce. The Felicita Duo, crispy philo dough filled with a tempting mix of peaches and lychees, served with a fruit salsa in citrus sauce, is the perfect way to end your meal.
Pescada’s sophisticated décor, combined with the excellent food, will ensure that it’s one of your new favorite spots for lunch or dinner. It is the perfect place to bring friends, family, and a great place to impress clients. As you comfortable sit and revel in the charmingly sophisticated ambianca and partake in the spectacular cuisine, you will then truly appreciate Pescada’s maxim, “Kosher fine dining – redefined.”

From the moment we walked in for a Sunday lunch until the moment we left, every second spent inside this lovely restaurant was fantastic. The waiters are courteous, the presentation is upscale, the prices are reasonable, the menu has something for everyone, and the delicious food is obviously prepared by a team whose passion is all things culinary. The ambiance made us feel as if we were sitting outdoors in a sun soaked location, and the attention to detail (especially loved the cushioned foam underneath the tables) is remarkable. We're already looking forward to coming back for dinner.
I absolutely love this restaurant. It's always packed because their food is so good! Really- the best kosher restaurant in Brooklyn. Their fish is always fresh, their sides are so creative and DELICIOUS. My husband doesn't usually like to go to dairy restaurants- he always prefers meat-- but Pescada is his only exception, and ONLY preference. Way to go on changing the game, Pescada!
this place seriously has the best food. im a very picky eater and there are no good kosher dairy places until now. we took my sister out for her birthday there my family was raving and now my sister (who lives in jersey) wont eat at any other dairy place besides this one. and their customer service is amazing!!!!
