Food News: Franklin Street’s New Lebanese Cafe, Annicka Temporarily Closes, Greenpoint Supperclubs + More
You may have noticed a new cafe quietly setting up shop on the more peaceful end of Franklin Street—Cafe Alula (252 Franklin St) next to totes adorbs plant shop Tend Greenpoint is now open, serving up Lebanese-inspired sandwiches, salads and cafe fare. They’re currently open 7am till 7pm every day.
PalAte are bringing you an intimate multimedia pop-up dinner experience at Magick City (37 Box Street) on Tuesday, Sept 25th from 7-10pm, where they’ll mash-up a chef’s tasting menu with art and music. The 6-course dinner will kick off with a cocktail reception and introduction with artist Leon Reed, followed by a tasting menu with beer and wine pairing options, and music and visuals. Tickets are $65.
And, a couple weeks later Greenpoint will get another popup dinner. Thisplace‘s next supperclub event will be hosted at a private Greenpoint loft on Thursday, October 4th from 7pm to 11pm, with a multi-course Italian-inspired dinner prepared by Elisa Da Prato. Tickets are $80 and include a cocktail and gratuity. BYOB.
Annicka (544 Manhattan Ave) has temporarily closed, after recently ending weekday breakfast and lunch service (though they remained open for daytime coffee and pastries, and dinner). The restaurant, launched by Greenpoint Beer & Ale and North Brooklyn Farms, has been open since the beginning of the year and was serving up farm-to-table cuisine with a vegetable slant. If we had to guess, it’s likely they will re-open with a new menu and possibly a new culinary direction.
