My earlier post seems to have been wrong. I got the information from official city websites so I can’t say that I’m surprised. Eh.

Chef Cody Utzmann of Brooklyn Label sent me the following email:

Thought you would like to know, we received our full liquor license approval letter one week ago from the state. We will be having the best bloody Mary’s ever real soon. We are currently in the process of obtaining inventory and build out required for the storage and preparation of cocktail, beer and wine. Should be no later than Dec 1st. PS thanks for the good comments!!!

Just in time for Christmas!

  1. Chef Cody Utzman/Press Release

    To my Loyal customers and fans: On Feb 1st 2008, I resigned my position as Founder/Head Chef/Owner of Brooklyn Label, due to un-reconcilable differences with Financial business partners. Since then I have noticed numerous comments on quality and service throughout blogs and web reviews and want to let my loyal customers, friends and neighbors know that I have left the trust of your favorite neighborhood café in the hands of my ex partners and crew, and I wish them the best and most success possible. As many of you know I was a regular feature behind the counter or in the kitchen making sure all your needs where met and your food was “excellent” every time. I fully intend to complete my mission statement of bringing the most “excellent” products, services, coffee, and neighborhood business improvements to Greenpoint. I am currently working on a really exciting project that should be open summer of 2008. Thank you again for all your support, rave reviews, and friendship in the past year. I look forward to welcoming everyone to my new place that will be the very best you’ve seen yet!!

    I am creating a mailing list to notify you all of my future projects. If you would like to join, send an email with “Brooklyn” in the subject to
