If you want to eat somewhere in Dumbo that won’t be packed with tourists wearing cameras around their necks, go to Pedro’s, a casual Mexican spot a block from the F train at York Street. Sit at an outdoor table, and eat huevos rancheros or a chorizo burrito, which is massive and costs $11, while watching the masses of people clog up the sidewalks on their way towards the waterfront.
