Gotham Market, the latest in a crop of trendy, exposed-brick-and-overhead-lighting food courts, is now open for business in the center of downtown Brooklyn. There’s been a spate of new restaurant and entertainment offerings in this area – Black Walnut, Lady’s and the Alamo Drafthouse are prime examples – but the area’s been sorely lacking a centralized quick-and-easy spot to grab delicious grub on the fly. Well, no longer!
The latest opening from the owners of Gotham West Market in Hell’s Kitchen brings a slew of new dining options to Brooklynites, all sharing space in an attractively decorated first-floor location under The Ashland, a new luxury residential high-rise. Some of the specialties to tuck into here include Apizza Regionale, a pizzeria focusing on locally sourced, fresh ingredients; Egg at the Bird, a breakfast hotspot; and Flip Bird, which specializes in rotisserie of the aviary nature.
There’s a craft bar, of course; Bar Granger is Gotham Market‘s centerpiece, and it can be found slinging wine and beer in the center of the food court. Other options include Mason Jar, a southern BBQ joint and the Crabby Shack, which hails from Crown Heights just a hop, skip and a subway ride away. Finally, Boqueria, a Spanish tapas chain found throughout New York City, will be opening a branch in the Market very soon.
All of these grazing options are housed in a space that will make even the most interior-design-minded Brooklynite feel at home, with soft lighting, exposed brick and a quiet atmosphere lending a touch of sophistication to guests’ lunch, or dinner, or breakfast proceedings. There’s nearly 400 seats here – both indoors and outdoors – but the space is cozy and pleasant enough, especially to the modern-day Brooklyn crowd that will surely appreciate the stenciled signs, vintage-styled decorations and the industrial-chic vibe. Gotham Market is now open every day from 11 in the morning until “late”, which we assume means “late enough to satisfy your middle-of-the-night guilty hunger cravings”.
