Taco fiends listen up: We just got word that the three brothers behind the Eat Out-award-winning Cal-Mex street cart are set to open their second brick-and-mortar location tomorrow—this time, in Greenpoint tomorrow. The new 65-seat spot, featuring a diamond-cut steel facade reminiscint of its mobile outposts, will expand on the Calexico Carne Asada menu with new items like Baha-style fish tacos, elote (grilled corn with queso cotija and cilantro) and a 645 burger (a blend of brisket, chuck and short rib on a ciabatta bun with their signature chipotle “crack” sauce). For the first time, you will be able throw back a brew alongside your carne asada burrito. The joint will have a full bar serving both south-of-the-border and local beers, including house label El Barrio (a dark Mexican-style ale made by Six Points), and cocktails such as a Jalapeño-Mint Margarita and the Manhattan Ave, a riff on the manhattan blending Partida Anejo tequila, Carpano Antica, and rhubarb bitters. Come summer, the eatery—outfitted with formica tables, a 25-foot white oak bar and antique mirrors—will open a 50-seat garden, but for now, you can get your taco on indoors Tue–Sun from 11:30am–4am.

Calexico, the quickly expanding chain of local cart and brick-and-mortar outlets for the best Mexican food in NYC that has grown from its humble beginnings as a pair of Soho food carts to include a delicious spot in Red Hook/Columbia Waterfront District and a mobile unit at Brooklyn Bridge Park, has just opened its latest restaurant at 645 Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint. Looks like it’s going to be an all-burritos-n-tacos holiday menu for North Brooklyn this year.
