That’s right folks. The infamous Vinnie’s on Bedford has opened a second location in Greenpoint, around the corner from my house, on Nassau and Kingsland. You’ll find all the unique and familiar toppings you order at their original spot: bbq chicken, mac n cheese, vegan meat galore, black beans, olives and artichokes, the list goes on. Today I inhaled a bbq chicken with bacon bits with cheddar. It was pretty darn good except I wish the crust were bigger and softer.
I’m relieved knowing I no longer have to bereave the lack of appetizing pizza joints (I am also anticipating Paulie Gee’s). This also means the oncoming of hipster gentrification is inevitable. I’m not complaining, neither am I celebrating. But, I am relieved the restaurant scene on this side of the point is improving and it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing all types of organic, locally produced hipster friendly bistro joints on Nassau.
Vinnie’s has been open for almost two weeks now and are delivering to you Greenpointers on the northern end and beyond. Come get some.
