Spotlight on Brooklyn Pizza Market.

So many new spots open up and go unnoticed in this area due to the vast turn over on Smith Street. We like to take some time to spotlight spaces that have opened in the last year, try them out, and report back. Brooklyn Pizza Market at 267 Smith has been open since last fall […]

Recently Opened Piercing Studio on Smith Street.

We couldn’t find out exactly how long this new piercing studio and fine jewelry storefront had been open but walking past it was new to our eyes and their yelp reviews only date back a few months so we imagine they are very new to this space. Ahimsa which if looked up in the dictionary […]

Cryotherapy and Wellness Center Coming to Cobble Hill.

When we passed this sign we peeked inside, took a couple photos, then went home and looked up exactly what Cryotherapy means. According to Wikipedia it’s “sometimes known as cold therapy, is the local or general use of low temperatures in medical therapy. Cryotherapy is used to treat a variety of benign and malignant tissue […]

MAPS Kids and MAPS Arts on Smith Street.

The storefront at 233 Smith Street, which used to house an Uncle Louie Gs, is now something called MAPS, an acronym for Music, Art, Puppets, and Sound.

Spotlight on Smith Street’s Black Forest.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the new opening on the bustling Smith Street. So when we passed Black Forest Brooklyn weeks ago we thought it may have just opened. We then learned it has actually been around since the Fall. We visited the German restaurant and beer garden in their other location […]

268 Smith Becomes Andrea Doria Social Club.

The space at 268 Smith Street had been vacant for a while and we recently noticed that the paper covering the windows had newly decorated windows announcing that the space would become Andrea Doria Social Club. Below that it also says “members only”. We looked up info about this place and could only find articles […]

New Dental Office opening on Court Street.

Dental offices are opening up on Court Street between Douglass and Degraw right next to the K & Y Fruit and Vegetable market. From the sign it looks like it will be called Court Street Smiles. A few family dental offices have opened up over the years in the neighborhoods of Cobble Hill and Carroll […]

New Thai Restaurant on Smith.

Smith street already hosts a large amount of Thai restaurants. It’s a very popular delivery option amongst New Yorkers and Thai Festival, which recently opened at 198 Smith Street is now added to the list. The interior, however, is so interesting that it would be a shame not to visit. You can view photos here. […]
