Oaxaca Taqueria is prepping to open soon at 417 Prospect Place in Crown Heights close to the Prospect Heights border. The taqueria previously had a spot close by but closed in 2011 because of building issues, the owners told us at the time.
We’re not sure if they’re taking over the small storefront pictured at right, above, or the Spot’s old space on the corner, at left. The Spot was closed when we stopped by this morning and its phone is disconnected.
Workers told us they hope to wrap up construction in a couple weeks. The small chain also has outposts in Park Slope, Williamsburg, and Bed Stuy. It plans to open another location at 71 Hoyt Street in Brooklyn Heights, according to a press release we received from CPEX, which brokered that deal. The New York Times was the first to write about the Crown Heights move.
