October 10, 2018
It’s an extra-busy time in Downtown Brooklyn: the leaves are changing, holiday shoppers are out in force, students are back at the books, and new places to eat and drink are popping up everywhere we look! From sushi to fried chicken, the selection in the neighborhood keeps getting bigger and better. Go for a jaunt and find your favorite! (Listed in no particular order)
187 State Street
About Coffee, pictured above, serves up fresh coffee and pastries at their new small, but cozy spot. With an original location in Soho, their first Brooklyn location is perfect for a quick cup before your workout at the nearby Dodge Y, a movie at UA Court Cinemas, or a trip to the NY Transit Museum around the corner.
Coffee Project NY
78 Rockwell Place
This hidden gem is located right in the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District. Tucked away on Rockwell Place, around the corner from BRIC, the exposed-brick space has room to sit with a friend, a laptop, or a cappuccino.
140 Lawrence Street
This Japanese eatery (above) is a fresh addition to neighborhood nightlife. Because “Izakayas” are informal Japanese pubs, it’s no surprise that the drinks menu offers a healthy selection of Sake, Japanese beer, Japanese Whiskeys, wine, and more. Large enough for office parties! Bring a group and order a variety of small plates and drinks.
135 Lawrence Street
If you’re not heading to the Japanese pub across the street, this bubble tea and juice chain also just opened up shop. Grab a green smoothie or a tea on your way to shop along the Fulton Mall.
2 MetroTech Center
Right on the perimeter of the MetroTech Commons (see above), this new sushi spot – opened by the same mind behind Ganso Ramen – features sushi-making robots. If that’s not enough of a draw, the sushi is delicious.
DeKalb Market Hall
The latest vendor to open in DeKalb Market Hall, this much-loved fried chicken chain just opened in September. Offering dark meat sandwiches and classic Southern drinks – Arnold Palmer, anyone? – this addition to the neighborhood brings comfort food just in time for the cold weather.
25 Bond Street
It’s never a bad idea to eat tacos, and now we have more options than ever. Enjoy these authentic, Mexico City style tacos (above), served on homemade tortillas. And if you can’t make it for lunch or dinner, they also serve weekend brunch.
Get your shopping done or see a movie at City Point, and then enjoy an outdoor meal at our tables in Albee Square, right in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn. Our brand new kiosk has something for everyone: burgers, salads, coffee, pastries, bagels, and fresh juice, to name a few. Vegetarian options, too!
