BOERUM HILL — Atlantic Antic is rolling back into Brooklyn this year and introducing a plethora of new restaurants from the avenue and a brand new stage.

The event is expected to introduce an array of new restaurants that opened along the avenue this year, including Table 87, Sottocasa, Hopeland and Maimonides of Brooklyn (M.O.B.).

“We have a lot of new merchants on Atlantic Avenue, so there should be tons of new things to look out for this year.” said Sasha Mercedes, a spokeswoman for Atlantic Antic.

Chef Elizabeth Faulkner’s Krescendo, a new Italian restaurant opening at 364 Atlantic Ave. this fall, will be debuting the restaurant’s menu at the event as well, with wood-fired pizza and an outdoor beer garden.

“This will be your first opportunity to taste their delicious Italian menu,” said Mercedes.

A new stage will be set up at the new vegan restaurant, Maimonides of Brooklyn (M.O.B.) located at 525 Atlantic Ave., with DJs turning tables inside and live music performances outside.

Live entertainment will take place at other venues along the Avenue, including Moxie Spot, Chip Shop, Last Exit, Hank’s Saloon and Waterfront Ale House.

The Kids Block, which spans from Boerum Place to Smith Street, will be back again this year with entertainment and attractions dedicated to children, including inflatable rides, pony rides and kid-friendly food.

Giveaways include Bring It On pom-poms, EVITA tissue packets, luggage tags, and other prizes.

“In a year where Atlantic Avenue has grown exponentially, I am happy to say the Atlantic Antic has too,” said Christian Haag, president of the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation.

The event, which covers the avenue from Hicks Street to Fourth Avenue, is taking place rain or shine on Sept. 30 from 12-6 p.m.
