Eatery Run by Greene Grape Owner Set to Open in Fort Greene
FORT GREENE — Fulton Street's newest eatery will serve food and wine gathered from a selection of local businesses.
Owner Amy Bennett plans to offer goodies from her other shops including small plates of artisanal cheese and charcuterie from Greene Grape Provisions, organic wine from the Greene Grape wine shop and fresh baked goods from the Annex at her newest venture, temporarily named Rogue Trader.
Rogue Trader is a placeholder name. Bennett and her team are still finalizing the eatery's name.
The new restaurant — located in space formerly used by Greene Grape Provisions at 767-769 Fulton St. on the corner of South Portland Avenue — will also have counter service and sidewalk seating.
Provisions moved just a few doors down to a bigger space at 765 Fulton St.
Staff from all the Greene Grape businesses are working together to plan a menu that highlights the best offerings from each of the three shops.
More details on the new eatery are still in the planning stages and an opening date has not yet been set, employees at Greene Grape Provisions said.
Community Board 2 approved a liquor license at its April 28 meeting though it still needs approval from the State Liquor Authority.
