Just as baseball fans eagerly anticipate opening day, lovers of Mexican and Cuban cuisines, look forward to the return of Habana Outpost each spring. This Fort Greene institution not only offers a vibrant al fresco place to eat, it is New York City’s first solar-powered restaurant. And the eco-friendly vibes are everywhere. Rainwater is recycled from the roof for the restrooms. There’s a bicycle-powered blender, and its owner, Sean Meenan, once had a 1965 Lincoln Continental convertible retooled to run on cooking oil from the restaurant. Habana Outpost is open each year from Earth Day to Halloween. (757 Fulton St., at the corner of Fulton and South Portland Sts.718-858-9500.)
