-The new beer garden in Fort Greene, Der Schwarze Kolner
is open and supposedly quite good although the outdoor area is still under construction.
-The old Barbette on Vanderbilt in Prospect Heights will soon be the new Pequana. Love their plantain and black bean quesadillas.
-Also new on Vanderbilt is Milk Bar, a new breakfast place (via Brownstoner)
-A new fancy hot dog place, Bark on Bergen (near Flatbush) is now open. A friend went to the opening and said they were delicious.
-Everyday on my walk to the subway I see the construction progressing on Cafe Mei Mei, a new restaurant taking over the old spot where Jill's was on Court St.
- Rumor has it that the much beloved pizza joint, Lucali is opening another location in the South Slope (via Brownstoner)
- Both Bonitas (in the Burg and in Fort Greene) are closing, although rumors are that Marlowe & Sons might take over the FG space.
