PROSPECT HEIGHTS — A new restaurant and bar serving southern comfort food, beer, wine and cocktails is coming to Vanderbilt Avenue, its owner said.
The team behind the soon-to-open eatery, Tin Kettle, hopes to open soon at 611 Vanderbilt Ave. near Bergen Street in Prospect Heights, said co-owner Brian Saunders, a longtime Crown Heights resident. He added that the project is a result of a group of friends who got sick of working for “corporate restaurants charging people an arm and a leg."
“[We] want to do really great food,” Saunders said. “There’s other bars in the neighborhood, but they don’t serve great food.”
The menu at Tin Kettle will be farm-to-table and mostly organic, he said, with classic southern dishes like black-eyed peas, hush puppies, biscuits and gravy, fried chicken and po’ boy sandwiches.
The restaurant will also have a full bar, according to a liquor license application filed with Brooklyn Community Board 8 and approved by the board this week. The spot will have about 50 seats total split between tables and bar seating inside and a large rear patio outdoors, the application said.
Saunders said the eatery will be open for lunch and dinner every day and for brunch on weekends. His team is aiming to open for business by “the holidays” in December and January, he said.
