PARK SLOPE — Come hungry next time you walk down Fifth Avenue, because the street is getting an infusion of new restaurants with cuisines from around the world.

Here's a look at what's new and what's coming soon.

Opening Date: Dec. 8
Cuisine: Tex Mex

This family-run restaurant opened in Crown Heights and expanded to Fifth Avenue because would-be customers kept calling and asking if they delivered to Park Slope, said Carlos Cardemas, who runs the restaurant with his brother and dad. Nacho Macho Taco serves Americanized Mexican food — you'll find flour tortillas and cheddar cheese on the menu, along with burritos and other north-of-the-border inventions, Cardemas said.

Mis Mediterranean Grill, 370 Fifth Ave.

While Nacho Macho Taco specializes in Americanized-Mexican fare, Los Nopales plans to serve the real deal, with "real spices and condiments from Mexico," the owner told DNAinfo New York earlier this year. It's opening in the space last occupied by Bierkraft.

The owner of Sheepshead Bay's Nargis Cafe is opening a new venture called Nargis Bar & Grill in the space last occupied by Nana. Owner Boris Bangiyer plans to offer a similar menu at the new location, with dishes such as lagman soup (with chopped lamb, veggies and homemade noodles), dumplings, and several cabbage salads, Patch first reported.

Cooks & Captains, 254-258 Fifth Ave.
Opening Date: February
Cuisine: New American

The restaurant operators behind Streets in Williamsburg and SoCo in Clinton Hill are taking a crack at the huge restaurant space last occupied by Grand Central Oyster Bar, which closed in July. Menu items will include rotisserie chickens, burgers, and “a cold station featuring sushi and ceviche,” owner Peter Best told Community Board 6.

Curry! A Modern Caribbean Experience, 388 Fifth Ave.
Opening Date: February
Cuisine: Caribbean

Chef/owner Michael Frazier, a Brooklyn native, wants to expose his customers "to the world of Caribbean cuisine in a way that challenges your taste buds and excites your mind," he wrote on a Go Fund Me page supporting his new restaurant, which is slated to open in the space previously occupied by Backyard.
