A new chef and a more affordably priced menu is on the offing at Fuego Picante, which opened earlier this year in East Meadow to a half-star review from Newsday critic Peter M. Gianotti.

These days, the Mexican food/barbecue spot is helmed by chef Brian Brothers, who has ‘cue experience in Memphis. Choices include the tamale of the day ($6), chicken taquitos ($7), BBQ chicken ($13), enchiladas ($14) with a choice of sauce and filling, as well as shrimp Creole ($15). Fajitas range from $13 to $18. A three-course lunch special goes for $10.

Fuego Picante is at 2367 Hempstead Tpke., East Meadow, 516-731-3333, fuegopicante.com.
