Wondering why this retail space on the corner of Washington and Park is still available. You’d think it would be a good locale at this point, with Mohito, Kiki’s Pet Hotel and Play Care, RePop and Body by Brooklyn right nearby.
That place has been empty for years. I think the problem is that its so large and there isn’t much foot traffic in the area. Whatever business opens there needs to be a “destination” business.
Double post. Anyone eaten at Mojito lately. We tried it when it first open and were underwhelmed.
We have tried Mojito twice in the past two months and have had horrific experiences. The food is always just ok. The wait is always too long, the staff is always rude and when I complained to the manager about the staff and long wait for food, she just shrugged her shoulders. I will never go back to Mojito, don’t even get me started on the tall blond waitress there!
We’ve only had take out but it sounds like our experience has been basically the same.
Our dining experience there was so bad we were alternately amused then mortified then blindsided by an existential despair that left us to question our place in society. Really, it was that bad. In fact, it passed the realm of just plain bad into the truly abysmal and continued it’s descent from there until we felt lucky to have escaped the restaurant with life and limb intact.
Never again, never.
Mohito was good for delivery about a year ago. But it is horrible going there. Food was cold, bland and service sucked.
I only like the Cubano sandwich and the churasco de pollo, the other items are underwhelming.
that is so sad to hear—we went there when it first opened and had a great meal and a great time. bummer.
Mohito is the worst ever…
Seriously? We’ve had great experiences at Mojito — and the food is great, from what I’ve had. And I don’t just stick to one or two dishes, either. I’ve never been disappointed there.
I too was under-whelmed in the past, but went back recently with a friend who had never been, while on the brownstone garden tour. The food was far better than I remembered. Unfortunately, the service was as slow I as remembered.
I had a couple of decent experiences there when it first opened, but will never go back due to the incredibly rude service I experienced later.
Speaking of bad service, I am beginning to call it the Dekalb Avenue syndrome. The top 3 worst being Chez Oskar, Madiba and Mohito. Never eaten at Red Bamboo, but whenever I walk by I notice that no one seems to know how to clear a table on the patio.
So brownstoner posted a few weeks back about the new high end cheese and produce shop going in at the former laundromat on greene between cambridge and grand (owned by the choice market guys)… Any word on an opening date or anything else in that area?
Service at Mojito is slow, no doubt about it, however, the food is consistently great…
Ive only been to Nojito’s twice, but both times we had really nice waitstaff and a great time. Honestly, the food was just OK, but I loved the ambiance and staff… Weird.
I love the tangents these threads go on.
I agree with the poster that said the area needs more foot traffic before that space will be a viable reatil space.
As to Mojito’s…I think underwhelmed would be about right. My wife and I can’t be bothered to go anymore. We’ve found better places.
I think that retail space is just overpriced. Yes it is a large space but the amount of traffic that it could get from the Myrtle avenue area if something appealing went there would justify renting the space.
