Last October, Brooklyn Bridge Park requested proposals for the creation and operation of Park concessions. Yesterday, Brooklyn Bridge Park announced the new park consessinaires for the smokestack building (pictured above), Pier 5, and Pier 6. The new concessionaires, Luke’s Lobster, No. 7 Sub, Ample Hills Creamery and Fornino Pizza, will begin operating this summer.
The Smokestack Building, under the Brooklyn Bridge, will feature a joint operation by Luke’s Lobster and No. 7 Sub. Operating the Pier 6 restaurant space will be Fornino-The Art & Science of Pizza, while Ample Hills Creamery will operate the new concession stand located at Pier 5 for the 2013 spring/summer season. Per BBP:
“In addition to their award-winning lobster rolls, Luke’s Lobster will sell a variety of food options including grilled cheese sandwiches and gluten-free soups. Working alongside Luke’s Lobster in the Smokestack Building will be No. 7 Sub, an offshoot of No. 7 restaurant in Fort Greene. The sandwich shop will offer unique options such as Turkey Meatloaf, Zucchini Parm, and Roasted Delicata Squash. No. 7 Sub will also offer cold-pressed juices and breakfast sandwiches to serve our early morning park visitors. Both concessionaires will operate seven days a week.”
Also returning to the park will be Calexico Carne Asada, Blue Marble Ice Cream, and Brooklyn Bridge Wine Bar. Smorgasburg will also be returning to the park on April 7, 2013 with their weekly food market at the Tobacco Warehouse. There’s an open call for Smorgasburg food vendors for the 2013 season.
The Smokestack Building in Brooklyn Bridge Park is in Fulton Ferry Landing across from Ignazios Pizza (4 Water Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201 — Google Maps.)
