Gallito’s Mexican Urban Cuisine Coming to Montague Street

A new restaurant looks to be opening up in the cursed 140 Montague St. spot formally known as Gandhi Palace. (And before that was the Italian restaurant with the strange name, great food and lousy service. What was it called again?) More to come about Gallito’s Mexican Urban Cuisine, including—what is Mexican urban cuisine? We will learn more when Karl Junkersfeld’s video comes out.

    Oh My Pasta was in the Ani space. This place has been Indian (not sure if same one) for at least 10 years.

    It was previously called Amin, which unfortunately was also the name of the former cruel dictator of Uganda.

    Sounds interesting. The other Mexican restaurant on Montague lasted long enough. Hope this one adds something interesting to the Montague Mix.

    I believe that the “cursed” restaurant is the on that currently houses Ani Sushi and not the former Ghandi Palace. Ghandi Palace has been an Indian restaurant for some time (with same owners but a different name). Ani Sushi was formerly the Italian restaurant with the terrible service, and before that was a Turkish, Mexican, and Hungarian restaurant.

    Hope it’s not tacos and refried beans;Mexico has great cuisine from it’s different regions that we don’t get at Mexican-American restaurants. I am looking forward to the opening!

    PLEASE let this place have good food. PLEASE.

    There’s a big Mexican restaurant coming into the old Morton’s space on Adams that look along the lines of Rosa Mexicana and Dos Caminos that I have high hopes for. The picture here with the flags makes me nervous…I just need a place with good strong margaritas that is closer than Alma.

    BTW – anyone else agree that the quality at Ani sushi has plummeted in the past couple of months? We are back to Mitoushi on Atlantic for our standby sushi take-out after a few disappointing meals from Ani.

    Have you tried Hibino on Pacific and Henry? I’m a big sushi eater and have not found anywhere close to Hibino in the Brooklyn area. Their obanzai (Japanese tapas) are excellent as well. Both their salmon and yellowtail collar iare fantastic at lunch for $10.

    I was really hoping it would be called “Oh My Guac”

  • bobloblaw

    They’ve posted a menu — looks promising! Anyone know when they might be opening?

  • Arch Stanton

    It does indeed look promising but I’m disappointed they don’t have tamales on the menu.

    Hill County is not mexican.
