All’s fair in love and real estate, right?
Today, DNAinfo reported that following a hefty rent hike, Bed-Stuy’s Dub-Stuy record label is moving onto greener and cheaper pastures. In their place will be a new restaurant from Crown Height’s Mayfield.
In the past, we’ve praised the Crown Heights eatery for their well-priced fried shellfish and ceviche and now Bed-Stuy will be able to get on all that affordable goodness. Mayfield co-owner and chef Lev Gewirtzman plans on converting the new space at 323 Franklin Avenue into a similarly well-priced bar and Mexican restaurant with a taco truck out back.
The as-yet-unnamed locale will open around lunchtime and serve food and drinks late into the night, providing both a family-friendly and grown-up-friendly environment (depending on the time of day). There will also be community-friendly additions like a garden and kids’ movie nights.
Accordingly, Community Board 3 is all about it. They already approved the new restaurant’s liquor license.
Meanwhile, Dub-Stuy is in a limbo as owner Quoc Pham seeks out a permanent location and sets to planning summer events, including a Memorial Day collaboration with Do or Dine.
