The restaurant row on Adams Street in Downtown Brooklyn is gaining a Mexican eatery new to the city.

Rocco’s Tacos has signed a 15-year lease at 339 Adams Street, the building’s developer Muss Development said in a release. The restaurant – which has five locations in Florida, including Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Boca Raton – doubles as a tequila bar. It boasts 225 varieties of the beverage distilled from agave.

The 14,500-square-foot location, which contains a ground floor and a lower level, is slated to open by the end of the year, the release said. Retail brokerage the Shopping Center Group represented Rocco’s Tacos, while Muss Development’s Ross Spitalnick as well as Ariel Schuster and Brian Segal of RKF assisted the developer in the deal.

Muss Development is known for its outer borough projects, such as a $40 million tower on Brighton Beach that recently began construction. But Jason Muss, the 41-year-old heir apparent of his family’s real estate business, plans to move the firm toward Manhattan developments.

The developer was also behind 345 Adams Street, home to a block of restaurants: Hill Country Market, Hill Country Chicken, Panera Bread, yogurt chain Orange Leaf and sandwich shop Potbelly. –Mark Maurer
