Bed Stuy will soon have a new place to pick up burgers. Geared to a wide variety of tastes, The Stuy Burgers soft opened on Halloween with beef, turkey, salmon and soy options priced that day at $10 each.

Owner and chef Titus Mitchell plans a grand opening for the petite eatery, located at 392 Halsey Street, this coming Friday, November 13, he told Brownstoner.

“I’ve called this community home for the last 15 years and I can’t think of a better place to be a black business owner in pursuit of his passion that also fills a community need,” Mitchell said on the venue’s GoFundMe page.

Menu items include the “Bed Stuy Burger” with beef, cheddar, sauteed onions, mushrooms, lettuce, tomato and truffle mayonnaise. “The Mediterranean” combines a vegetarian Impossible Burger with Greek seasoning, feta, tomato and red onion on toasted black olive and garlic brioche. Burgers featuring salmon and turkey will also be on offer. The restaurant will be open from noon to 8 p.m. every day except Monday.

A longtime Bed Stuy resident, Mitchell has worked at Craft, Smorgasburg and in France. A cofounder of safety nonprofit We Make Us Better, he helped put on a “VIP brunch” for homeless men living in the 13th Regiment Armory shelter around the corner in 2016. He has recently been cooking for seniors in the nearby Armstrong NYCHA complexes and essential workers at Interfaith Hospital.

The space was formerly home to popular Haitian cafe and art gallery Kafe Louverture, which never reopened after the COVID shutdown earlier this year.
