For All Things Good to open in Williamsburg this fall

One of Brooklyn’s buzziest new restaurants is gearing up for a Williamsburg expansion. For All Things Good, a beloved Mexican cafe that received a nod from the Michelin Guide and just about everyone else this year, is planning to open a second location at 314 Grand Street, at the corner of Havemeyer Street. Construction is currently underway and the sequel should be up and running by early November, according to owner Matt Diaz.

The restaurant’s menu will be similar to the first location in Bed-Stuy, which Diaz opened with partner Carlos Macías roughly a year ago. Among other things, the molino — mill, in Spanish — has become known for its house-milled masa, made from nixtamalized corn and then shaped into tlayudas, tlacoyos, memelas, and the Instagram-favorite tetelas.

At its new location, For All Things Good will share a block with a star-studded cast of restaurants, including Leo, Emmy Squared, and the Michelin-starred Four Horsemen down the street. The design team behind Gertie, located on the opposite end of Grand Street, created the molino’s first space in Bed-Stuy.
