Calexico to (finally) open

Mark your calendars for June 23. The long-awaited Calexico restaurant in Carroll Gardens, brought to you by the people who run the food carts of the same name in Soho, open their taqueria on Tuesday. From Grub Street:

When the doors finally open, they’ll serve the items you know and love as well as crack-sauce–laden torta and salad versions, plus new dishes such as shrimp and grits and daily specials such as ribs and tamales (the base menu is still coming together). When the beer-and-wine license comes in, there’ll be micheladas too, but during the BYOB phase, expect Mexican sodas and daily aguas frescas. [Owner Dave] Vendley says the look of the place will be unique “but still your modest taqueria,” with a blown-up picture from their hometown of Calexico, California, as the centerpiece, and hand-painted Mexican folk art on the walls.

Calexico Carne Asada will be open from 11 a.m. till 11 p.m. at 22 Union St., where burger favorite Schnack used to be. For more information, call 718-488-8226.
