MOTT HAVEN -

A new restaurant is serving up unique Mexican dishes in Mott Haven.

Habanero Mexican Cuisine on Lincoln Avenue has only been open three months, but co-owner Laura Calixto say business hasn't slowed down.

She says Habanero is family owned with roots that trace back to Puebla, Mexico, just outside Mexico City.

It's an area known for its rich culinary history and skilled artisans. 

Calixto describes the food as being in the middle of traditional and modern.
