Open and Shut


    Coney Island
    Famed pizza joint Totonno’s has reopened on Coney Island after Sandy. Grub Street, rightly so, calls this “great, wonderful, stupendous news.” The Neptune Avenue pizza restaurant was not sure they’d be able to reopen after having trouble with relief loans. We are glad they are back! Photo by roboppy.

    North Brooklyn
    Eater hears a rumor that Williamsburg BBQ joint BrisketTown may be expanding. Greenpoint party space CoCo666 reopened last Friday after getting shut down by the city. And Cafe Pistachio is open at 114 Nassau Avenue in Greenpoint, serving Turkish snacks and house-made baked goods.

    In Fort Greene, popular neighborhood restaurant Lulu & Po will be adding a 14-seat outdoor cafe this summer. An upscale consignment shop is open and the “street culture” clothing boutique Impeccable Attire is closed, both on 5th Avenue in Park Slope. The Washington Avenue Key Foods on the border of Crown and Prospect Heights is under new management, and is staying relatively clean after failing a number of DOH inspections. In Carroll Gardens, classic French restaurant Pompette Bistro.Bar opened on Court Street at 9th Street. And art space Issue Project Room has reopened in Downtown Brooklyn after a building accident.
