Seven Restaurants That Opened in NYC This Week
Four & Twenty Blackbirds
When one restaurant's doors close another restaurant's doors open in fast-paced New York City, and every Friday, we'll fill you in on what opened up around town this week. This week: a whiskey bar in Greenpoint, a bakery in the Brooklyn Public Library, and a "kosher style" restaurant on First Avenue.
Currant Café, 248 McKibbon, Brooklyn
The McKibbon lofts in Bushwick have been getting a lot of buzz lately thanks to a soon-to-open nightclub in the building. For now, tenants and Bushwick residents can enjoy a cup of coffee and pastries at the new Currant Café. The café is owned by the impending nightclub's owners and serves grilled cheese, sloppy joes, and more.
Dziupla, 194 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn
Taking the place of longstanding eatery S&B is Dziupla, a Polish restaurant headed by Krzysztof Drewiecki. Born in Poland, Chef Drewiecki formerly trained at Nobu and owns four other Polish restaurants in Brooklyn. Once the weather warms up, there will be six outdoor tables, and an outdoor piano. Dziupla is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
has expanded to the Brooklyn Public Library. Owners and siblings Melissa and Emily Elsen started serving their homemade sweets on the most appropriate day of the year, Pi Day (March 14).
