There’s been a lot happening in the food world, Greenpointers! Let’s play catch up.
First off, Bushwick’s famed Roberta’s (261 Moore Street) has sure come a long way from making their pizzas on a portable grill, jailhouse decor and topless servers—they are officially coming to the Williamsburg waterfront, in the new Domino complex. We can expect them to open in Fall 2019.
Pls send noods. The much awaited Ramen Mafia (208 Franklin Street) is finally open:
Vegetarian and vegan buffet joint Jungle Cafe is moving to 131 Greenpoint Avenue:
Manhattan Inn and the old Van Leeuwen space will become Ponyboy (632 Manhattan Ave), a new venue for live music and dancing (funk/soul), and American fare and sushi. The space is owned by ex-Olympic runner and sushi chef to the stars Michael Stember. They are currently taking bookings for private dinners before the open to the public, email Michael@ponyboy.nyc.
Cheers to this: Grimm Ales (990 Metropolitan Ave) opened a few weeks back and biz has been slammin’.
