To say that this joint, featuring partners Chad from Tugboat and Kalkin Narvilas from Franklin Ave's Cent'Anni, will be a game changer for the bourgie mood around Flatbush...is like saying that oil changed Texas, or "Taxes" as a recent heartbroken commenter wrote.
From the article:
"We’re going to have a lobster roll on a pretzel bun, and some short rib sliders," Narvilas said. "We’re going to have 24 draft lines and high-end whiskeys and scotches with a focus on local New York breweries and distilleries."And the Q's fave quote:
Though it's a far cry from the traditional Italian cuisine at Cent'Anni and Narvilas' Washington Heights Italian eatery Saggio, the planned pub could be similar to Narvilas' earlier Hell's Kitchen venture, Blue Ruin, he said.
"This isn’t my first rodeo," said the restaurateur, who appeared before Community Board 9 seeking support for a full liquor license Tuesday night for the new Flatbush Avenue establishment. "I definitely need to get open, but assuming there aren’t any hidden traps waiting, I think as early as June."Good luck cowboy!
