PROSPECT HEIGHTS — The popular pie shop Four & Twenty Blackbirds is bringing some new flavor to Dean Street.
The Gowanus-based eatery is planning to bring a “dessert establishment” with grab-and-go service, beer and wine to Prospect Heights, according to a liquor license for the spot supported by Brooklyn Community Board 8 this week.
The new 25-seat cafe at 634 Dean St. between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues will be located inside the headquarters for real estate company TerraCRG and sit directly across from the construction site of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park.
Four & Twenty is no stranger to the neighborhood. The pie group has been operating a cafe inside the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Branch at Grand Army Plaza since 2014. The company also runs a third shop on the North Fork of Long Island.
CB8 approved the liquor license for the new cafe with 34 yes votes and one no at a meeting Thursday night.
During consideration of the liquor license application for Four & Twenty, members of the Dean Street Block Association had brought up some concerns about noise, deliveries and “sidewalk management” by the new eatery, the board said.
But on Thursday, a representative of the block association said the pie shop proprietors had amply addressed those issues.
Four & Twenty is known for its rotating seasonal pie menu, which currently includes the signature “Salty Honey” custard pie, an apple rose pie and a “Chocolate Julep” pie that mixes mint, bourbon and chocolate.
Tentative hours for the Dean Street cafe are 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., according to the application. It’s unclear when exactly the shop will open.
An inquiry to Four & Twenty was not immediately returned on Friday.
Peter Schubert, a partner at TerraCRG, said the group is "thrilled" to bring Four & Twenty to Dean Street, particularly "as an amenity" to the real estate office.
“They are hands-down the best pie in New York City,” he said.
