Just when you think the food scene in Brooklyn couldn’t get any more exciting, The New York Times reports on a set of fall openings we can’t wait to get our chompers on.
Their Brooklyn picks:
Basik – Chef Ryan Jordan (of the Breslin and John Dory) does local food in Williamsburg
Hillside — Wine and small plates from the folks behind Vinegar Hill House
Kimchi Grill — The Kimchi Taco truck gets a brick and mortar in Prospect Heights
Pillar & Plough — Tater tots and squab from the former chef de cuisine at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at the Hotel Williamsburg
Red Gravy — Seasonal Southern Italian from Saul Boulton (recently of Nighthawk Cinema), Brooklyn Heights
Speedy Romeo — Pizza, seafood, and steak from a former Jean-Georges chef, Clinton Hill
Talde — Asian comfort food from Top Chef’s Angry Dale in Park Slope (more here)
A few to add:
Chuko — The ramen shop from two former Morimoto chefs is up and running, and so far reports are that the Green Tomato bun and ice cream sandwiches are out of control (we’re gonna assume the ramen is good, too).
606 R&D — The former savory chef from City Bakery will be doing comfort food with a full bar in Prospect Heights come December, according to New York Magazine.
The Sunburnt Calf — The Brooklyn outpost of this East Village Aussie bar and grill expects to open in Prospect Heights in mid-September, according to the Village Voice.
We’re drooling in anticipation, folks. At the risk of making an extremely dated reference…GET IN MY BELLY!
