Brooklyn is home to oodles of fine dining experiences, from big names like Alinea to newcomers Smyth and Elske. But no foodie’s checklist is complete without Calidad Alta.
It is located in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn where Chef Akhtar Nawab is cooking innovative Mexican cuisine. The Spanish translation of “Calidad Alta” means “high quality” and it’s our goal to provide that with every dish that we serve. Our goal is to cook with pride and integrity and have a lot of fun doing it!! We’re thrilled to be part of this amazing Brooklyn community and we want each of you to join us and participate in this exciting adventure!
Akhtar Nawab (Choza Taqueria, Indie Fresh), is behind Calidad Alta, a newly opened Latin-inspired restaurant, and Nawab’s first full-service, sit-down restaurant in almost a decade. Out of the 40-seat space, the team is serving dishes like queso fundido with chorizo; octopus and pork belly with avocado aioli; and a selection of tacos, vegetables, and family-style dinner plates. The bright, all-white space is taking over what was previously Chuko Ramen.
