The Bahche, La Botaneria, Red Pepper, and More Open
It's time for another edition of the Opening Report. There are multiple restaurants opening around the New York, so take a look!
1) Gowanus: A former warehouse in Gowanus is now The Bahche, a Turkish cafe with a massive outdoor courtyard. The restaurant serves things like hummus, tabbouleh, and a traditional Turkish breakfast platter, but you can also get a burger and fries. An employee tells DNAinfo that the place is meant for lingering, whether with a book or on a laptop. Status: Certified open. 191 7th St., Brooklyn, 718-422-0800.
2) Park Slope: Fonda's Roberto Santibañez just opened his new spot, La Botaneria, right across the street from the Brooklyn Fonda. It's a tiny restaurant, with just a few high tables and a menu of small plates to match. There are dishes like smoked trout salad and a Spanish tortilla, plus beer, wine, and cocktails. Status: Certified Open. 427 Seventh Avenue.
3) Fort Greene: A bar called The Great Georgiana opened recently in the space that once housed the coffee shop Tillie's, a beloved old Fort Greene standby that closed a couple of years ago. The bar's owner, Australian music producer Dominic Tracy, tells DNAinfo that he plans to roll out a cocktail menu soon, and he will also hire a chef to serve "meats, cheeses, dips, quince paste, and small plates from all around the world." Status: Certified open. 248 DeKalb Avenue.
