There were quite a few openings, closings and one re-opening in and around the neighborhood during the summer months that you may have missed, if like me, you have been traveling.
Here are just a few. If you can add to the list, let us know.
Eton now closed at 359 Sackett Street
In a farewell letter taped to the eatery's storefront, owner Eton Chan explains that his frozen dumplings will be available at local grocery stores starting this month. That's good to know.
Bizio and Soci Boutique at 308 Court Street Now Open
The boutique seems to be an outpost for a clothing store called Made in Heaven, located in Rome, Italy.
Glad to see that they left Gloria's great tile floor.
Has anyone checked it out?
New Kimchi Grill On Smith Street At 9th Street Gets Great Reviews
Kimchi Grill, a relatively new Korean BBQ place located at 478 Smith Street at the corner of 9th Street is getting some pretty awesome reviews on Yelp. The eatery was opened by Phillip Lee, known for his popular Kimchi Taco food truck. Most people seem to have discovered the new eatery on their way back by shuttle from Ikea Red Hook.
The prices seem pretty reasonable. Check out their menu here.
Put this one on your 'must try' list for this fall.
The Re-Opening Of Mastellone's At 303 Court Street . It's Now Called Carroll Gardens Market
After less than a year, Big Apple Gourmet called it quits in April 2014.
Carroll Gardens Market opened at this location at the beginning of August. Apparently, it is run by Mastellone family, who owned the original Italian deli.
I popped into the new Carroll Gardens Market over the week-end. In addition to produce and the usual deli selection, the market also offers fresh meat.
