When the “Leased” sign went up in the window of 117 Court Street last fall, there was great speculation on this site and others about the identity of the tenant. We reported that Massey Knakal broker Tim King dropped a hint at the November session of the Brooklyn Real Estate Roundtable that the tenant was “a company that’s been in the food production biz for the last hundred years.” Some of the names readers threw into the ring included Balducci’s, Sahadi’s, Russ & Daughters, none of which, it turns out is right. To find the correct answer, you have to go to a follow-up thread on Chowhound in which one reader speculates that it could be Boar’s Head. Evidently, the cold-cuts giant already has a kiosk at the JetBlue Terminal at JFK and has had plans in the works to establish a beach head in Brooklyn. According to a well-placed source, this is indeed the location. Chicken roll, anyone?
