Brooklyn's Three Million Dollar Dive
38-44 Washington Ave. (Alternate address: 200 Flushing Ave.)
"One of the city’s truly gritty watering holes, the Navy Yard Cocktail Lounge, may not have long for this world. Per a Douglas Elliman listing, the bar’s building (along with three others) is for sale for $3 million... If you plan to pay your first and last respects to J.J.’s, as it’s sometimes called, know that even professional degenerates who’ve ignored the 'MEMBERS ONLY' sign on the establishment’s front door have ended up fleeing (if only at having to pay the impromptu lap dancers)." [Grub Street]
Harding and Mamary Heading to Soho?
"According to a posting on a French Culinary Institute's job board, Alan Harding and Jim Mamary are planning a new Patois in Soho and a restaurant and charcuterie shop in Brooklyn. It had been reported after the shutter that Patois would be moving across the street to 254 Smith St., so chances are that is the future home to the meat shop." [Eater]
524 Court Street (at Huntington Street), Carroll Gardens
"Excellent Court Street newcomer, Buttermilk Channel has just launched brunch. It’s been proven that chef Ryan Angulo does wondrous things with pecans, so we’re looking forward to the pecan-pie French toast (says admittedly biased owner Doug Crowell, it’s 'pretty insane')." [Time Out New York]
