I received a comment from a reader this week on one of my posts from back in October on that new restaurant at the corner of Kent & Franklin.
The nice Korean man is the owner. The restaurant will be called “The River Barrel”. My husband, also a Greenpointer, is the new chef working hard at the New American menu that will hopefully be debuting in the next 2 weeks! Full Bar and late night menu to boot!
A couple of quick shots I took in October of the interior with the owners consent:
Very exciting stuff to hear that a local chef will be taking the reins on this new joint. I’m thrilled to see what’s in store. The work being done on the place seems top notch, the people nice and it will be great having another dining option in the neighborhood. Especially in the winter when one isn’t in the mood to troop over to BBurg but still needs to get out of the house.
The name thing is confusing since I was under the impression it was called River Barrel but their newly added signage indicates River Ballel. I guess we’ll find out soon enough! Thanks J.
