Following a warm, sunny weekend in which Prospect Park was jam packed and people were crowding bars and restaurants, Mayor de Blasio Sunday finally took a much needed step and officially closed Brooklyn schools and businesses.
Tragic timing for the highly anticipated reopening of the historic Downtown Brooklyn restaurant.
The reboot, in the works for several years, has been greeted with elation from longtime Brooklyn residents.
The eatery serves both traditional dishes and other creations, including sushi, noodles and fried chicken.
These small meatballs with carrots and potato are from Isfahan, a city in central Iran.
The dishes at the Prospect Heights Persian restaurant were culled from many sources and perfected over a long period of time.
History has become an important part of the reopening of Gage & Tollner.
The restaurant is known for its spicy dishes, lamb and house-made noodles.
The restaurant is “serving up sandwiches, burgers and sides,” according to a Facebook post.
The chain of coffee shops quickly becoming ubiquitous in Brooklyn is opening new shops in Park Slope and Williamsburg.
