So we told you back in October that Brooklyn Bridge Park was looking for someone to fill the Smokestack Building with some kind of food vendor. If you put in an RFP and didn’t get picked, don’t be too bummed out, you lost out to a couple of big time foodie joints. This summer, you’ll be able to chow down on lobster rolls (if you can afford it we guess)from Luke’s Lobster, or get a lowly sandwich from sub purveyors No. 7.In even more good news that will destroy that summer body you worked so hard for, ice cream slingers Ample Hills Creamery will be working out of a location in Pier 5, and Fornino will be serving pizzas on Pier 6 out of a space with a rooftop beer garden.

Check back with us again in May.

Those who warned us that no presidential election could lead to changes overnight woke up the next morning (and every morning after) to visions of a new and surreal reality, as though we had passed […]
