384 Court Gets a Facelift and Coffeeshop.

The front of 384 Court Street has changed dramatically.  Below you can see what it used to look like with the attached lighter colored storefront and above you can see the changes they have made.  Not only have they painted and taken down the awnings but they have added and replaced the large windows surrounding the […]

Velvette Brew Coming to Smith Street.

Formerly two spaces in one, a juice bar and Shelsky’s of Brooklyn, which moved up to Court Street near Atlantic, 251 Smith Street has had brown paper in the windows for a short while. We are now seeing signage! A small piece of paper has been put up in the window that announces a place […]

Via Roma Pizza Bar Open on Court.

The space at 445 Court Street in Carroll Gardens is looking a lot sleeker than it has in years but it’s still serving up the same type of food…pizza!  Formerly Vinny’s Pizzeria, the current tenants at this storefront have done a nice job of revamping the outside and inside of the new Via Roma Pizza Bar. […]

New Cafe Opening in Carroll Gardens this Spring.

While browsing records at the new Almost Ready Record shop at 135 Huntington in Carroll Gardens we noticed that right next door is a cozy little space with a couple of signs in the window announcing the opening of a new cafe.  There was no one working at the moment to ask more about the storefront […]

Honeygrow comes to Brooklyn.

With locations all over the Northeast, Honeygrow has decided to expand further by opening a location at 194 Joralemon in Downtown Brooklyn. The company originated in Philadelphia with a focus on fresh, wholesome, simple food. After looking at the menu, we can see that this place will probably be pretty successful in this spot, which […]

Spotlight on Nunez Bar in Cobble Hill.

We were walking by this Tapas Bar the other day and thought it may be new to the area.  Smith street has so many spots coming and going that it sometimes hard to keep up.  Well, it’s been at 247 Smith Street for about a year now, replacing People’s Republic of Brooklyn.  The menu looks […]

New Bar on Court Street.

We passed a bar at 517 Court Street that we’d never seen (or never noticed) before called The Watershed.  It’s quite large so we assumed we’d have noticed it before.  As you can see in the photo it’s the storefront of a new building and has nice big windows spanning the whole space. You can […]

Coffee Roasters Coming to Carroll Gardens.

You can’t miss this giant signage on the corner of Carroll when walking down Court Street.  It announces that East One (E1), coffee roaster and restaurant, is coming soon.  After doing a little research we found out that the original E1 is in London and that the New York opening is one of Zagat’s most anticipated […]

Brooklyn’s Best Pies for the Holidays.

Whether you are hosting a holiday meal at your place or going to someone else’s, pie is essential to have or bring.  There are so many mouth watering options around Brooklyn that it was hard to pick but here are our top choices.   Fruit Pies: Buttery, melt in your mouth, tart, and slightly salty, […]

Broccolino NYC Opening in Smith Street.

Formerly Hunter’s, and right next door to Stinky Brooklyn, is 213 Smith Street with a huge sign in the window announcing that Broccolino NYC will soon be opening in this spot.  This Italian restaurant isn’t new to the Brooklyn scene.  They have a second location near the Barclays Center on Dean Street, though food is […]
