Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Jesse, Brian and Dave Vendley, the brothers behind the Cal-Mex street-cart phenom, open their second brick-and-mortar location, in Greenpoint. The new 65-seat spot, featuring a diamond-cut steel facade reminiscent of its mobile depots, 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 can throw back a stiff drink 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 Sixpoint), 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. In the summer, the eatery—outfitted with Formica tables and antique mirrors—will open a 50-seat garden.
