Calexico Opening at 153 Rivington Street Thursday

Posted on: April 9th, 2013 at 6:50 am by


Bondi Road couldn’t be further in the past. Not after scoping the look of its replacement at 153 Rivington. Calexico moved in and completely retooled the joint, replacing the facade in the process. Tables, chairs, and stools are in position, ready for takeoff. We are told opening is set for this Thursday, roughly ten months after word first leaked about its arrival here on the Lower East Side.

This brick-and-mortar is the third overall location for the popular Mexican food truck, but first in Manhattan.
