The continuously growing stretch of Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill has a new restaurant among its ranks.
Located at 413 Myrtle Avenue, between Vanderbilt and Clinton, Ojalá Restaurant offers what they call modern versions of classic Mexican dishes. Which means that you can get baby back ribs with a side of esquites.
Brunch, lunch and dinner are served seven days a week, according to their website.
Doors opened on February 18; the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership posted a photo of them putting up their new sign on Instagram on March 8.
There are a number of other Mexican restaurants in the area — and no, we’re not talking about the Chipotle a block away. Castro’s is one block up at 511 Myrtle, Taqueria Tepango at 568 Myrtle Avenue, and a little further up Myrtle is Chinantla, a grocery with a restaurant in the back popular amongst Pratt students.
The space at 413 Myrtle has seen a number of restaurants come and go quickly, including Cultura Pan Latin Cooking and GB Crown Tavern, which opened and closed in the last two years. Ojalá’s ownership team is not associated with the previous restaurants, according to a representative from the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership.
