Butternut Market, at 366 Lewis Avenue in Bedford Stuyvesant, will be a Provisions/Union Market/Chop Chop-like grocery store. "We will offer a variety of prepared foods..salads, veggies, meat & fish dishes. They will mostly be cold dishes to take home (there will be very limited seating) plus we will have a few hot dishes each day (including rotisserie chickens)." That's the news from this Brooklynian post, and the owners, including a Brownstoner regular and
an owner former manager of Solomon's Porch, will take your suggestions of what to stock. Apparently a renaissance is expected for this little corner of the world; word has it a wine bar and florist are coming soon, too. The owners hope to provide healthy alternatives to junk-stocked bodegas and offer residents another shopping venue; the Foodtown in Restoration Plaza is a heckuva walk.
