People love a food hall and, recently, they are more in vogue among developers than ever. We’re not talking the kind of food hall you knew at the mall as a kid. We’re in Brooklyn, so, here, food halls will get you a meal just as high end as a Michelin starred restaurant.
In Brooklyn there’s BERG’N, the subterranean Dekalb Market Hall within the giant City Point development (coming this fall), and now, Gothamist reports Fort Greene will get a food hall of its own—only a five minute walk from the City Point development. Installed on the ground floor of one of the neighborhood’s many new residential high-rises, the Ashland, this one is brought to you by an already established Manhattan food hall brand, Gotham West Market—here, called Gotham Market at the Ashland.
Like Dekalb Market Hall, this food hub is set to open in the fall but will be about half the size at 16,000 square feet—still not small by any means. It will include seven full-time vendors and, another trend, a pop up space for a roster of rotating chefs. Not all vendors have been sorted, according to Gothamist, but it sounds like there will be plenty of good stuff in store: Mu Ramen, noodle bowls and Japanese fare; Apizza Regionale; Flip Bird, a new rotisserie chicken vendor from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que’s John Stage; and Mason Jar bringing smoked meat and bourbon.
Finally, there will be another Brooklyn favorite: A place to drink alcohol. According to Gothamist, Gotham Market West will incorporate a “convivial bar,” though we do not know exactly which convivial bar this will be. Meantime, you can drink elsewhere and salivate over your up-and-coming expanded lunchtime options.
