Calexico Opens in Greenpoint
Calexico has silently opened their second restaurant. It's located at 645 Manhattan Avenue, one storefront up from the Bedford Avenue intersection and Dunkin' Donuts / Baskin-Robbins. The Nassau Avenue entrance of the Nassau Avenue G-Train station is within shouting distance.
It's important to note that their hours are limited right now, being 5:30pm - midnight Tuesday to Sunday, closed Monday. This leaves Calexico out of the vibrant South Greenpoint brunch scene for the time being.
Update (1/23/2011): Wet-erase marker on the window now says "Open for Lunch". The Monday closure is still in effect.
If you're used to visiting a Calexico cart rather than a restaurant, you'll be surprised how fancy this sit-down restaurant looks. Aside from plenty of tables there is also a long bar which is stocked to full-service levels.
Takeout available and delivery will be sometime soon if this store plans to match its Waterfront District counterpart's service levels.
For now it's probably a good idea to give them a call before heading out:
