    The Shop Brooklyn, which is a bar operating inside of a motorcycle shop, will open in Bushwick this summer. The 5,000-square-foot space, located off the Jefferson stop, will feature dinner service, a late night menu, barbecue, live music, and DJs.

Ditmas Park Corner attends the soft opening of Milk and Honey, a new coffee spot at 1119 Newkirk Avenue. Della Pietra’s Gourmet Meats is under construction between Sahadi’s and Damascus on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn Heights. The upscale butcher should open by the end of the month. And in Coney Island, Lola Star Boutique has reopened since shuttering due to Hurricane Sandy.
