The Calexico Empire is expanding yet again, and now a new Calexico Manhattan Restaurant!
The Vendley Brothers, who won the 2008 Vendy Cup for their great Calexico Carne Asada food carts, are opening an outpost on the Lower East Side.
If you are not familiar with Calexico, what are you waiting for!
They had 2 food carts in Soho for a long time, but moved one to Worth Square a while back, at Broadway & 25th St.
At this point, Calexico also has 2 restaurants in Brooklyn – one in Greenpoint and one in Red Hook.
Now they will be opening at 153 Rivington St, which is between Suffolk & Clinton Streets.
According to their twitter account, it will be opening in a couple of weeks. This is a hopping neighborhood with a lot of nightlife that should be very welcoming to a restaurant like Calexico Carne Asada.
Good luck guys!
