New Restaurant Coming to Flushing and Washington


The makeover of the former Navy Yard Cocktail Lounge (which The Times once called the “Scariest Bar in Brooklyn“) is officially underway. The building that housed the legendary spot, 38-44 Washington Avenue, sold for $2,000,000 last October and two weeks ago a permit was issued to renovate the ground-floor space; residential renovation on the upper floors is sure to follow. The building permit calls for a change from a Group 6 to a Group 12 Eating and Drinking Establishing which, as we understand it, means more seats and/or the addition of entertainment. We were unable to reach the owner. Anyone know more details about this place?
