News from The Longshoreman Bar.

We had posted a blog when we found out about our new neighbors taking over at 215 Columbia, which used to be Toby’s Public House. The Longshoreman, an Italian bistro who still has no social media or website we could find, is supposed to open sometime this fall. We wanted to post the latest news we […]

New Pizzeria Coming to Red Hook and Community Meeting!

The space right on the corner of Ferris and Van Dyke is, as you can see in the photo above, a very recognizable Red Hook space. Artists painted this building years ago across both sides of this giant warehouse and now you can’t miss it! RC’s commercial team had been working on this expansive building […]

Hope and Anchor becomes Copper Pot

We have news! The space at 347 Van Brunt Street in Red Hook, which was until very recently the beloved neighborhood spot Hope and Anchor, is undergoing changes already. The Copper Pot has signage up (which you can view blown up below) and are nearly ready to post a menu and welcome customers from the […]

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. […]

Spotlight on Golda Cafe in Bed Stuy by Sunny (Najeong) Moon

Golda is a quaint neighborhood café serving delicious brunch specialties in Bedford-Stuyvesant. It’s an all-day restaurant serving new American fare with Middle Eastern flavors. Though Golda is set in a cozy and casual space, the menu is far from simple. Everything, including pastries and breads are baked in-house and there is a multi roaster coffee […]

Women-Owned Business Part 5: Michelle Mannix and Cook Space.

We are well acquainted with Michelle Mannix’s business ventures. She was in the neighborhood not too long ago as co-owner of Ted and Honey and recently opened a spot in Prospect Heights called Cook Space, a cooking school and catering space. We are happy to have had the opportunity to ask Michelle about her new […]

Fast Food Chain Closed and New Tenants Plan Opening on Atlantic.

We are very accustomed, although saddened, to seeing small businesses close up shop only to be replaced with a Dunkin Donuts or some other chain fast food restaurant. We were not surprised to see Subway open up at 75 Atlantic years ago but still upset as we feel a chain shop puts a dent in […]

New Italian Restaurant in Columbia Waterfront Brooklyn.

Those of us who live or work in the Columbia Waterfront District of Brooklyn know this lovely little section of the borough to be quiet, mostly residential, with a few scattered restaurants here and there.  When a new spot opens, it’s pretty big news! Especially if that new spot is getting good reviews! Sebastiano’s at […]

Seasonally Focused Camperdown Elm in South Slope.

We love trying new restaurants and, though it took us a little while to make it over to Camperdown Elm on 7th Avenue and 15th Street, we finally tried them out for dinner on Friday night and enjoyed every bite (and sip!). They have been open since late June and have already become a neighborhood […]
