Time Out Says

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.
