so exciting! ive had their stuff at the flea, and while i find much of the food there lackluster, these guys had it together. really, really good.
hmmm. They are not disclosing their address.... They were looking at Franklin Avenue:
Butter and ScotchOkay, brace yourselves folks–you’re about to dive into some of the most impossibly cute New Brooklyn sentences ever written. Brooklyn Flea vets Keavy Landreth of Kumquat Cupcakery and Allison Kave of First Place Pies are teaming up on this craft cocktail and dessert bar. Expect a “strong dialogue between the bar and pastry kitchen,” as in seasonal ingredients that are incorporated into both sundae syrups and cocktail bitters. Look for a mini-cupcake and liqueur flight with options like chocolate lavender cupcakes and chai amaro, plus savory lunch plates and bar snacks like dark and stormy caramel corn. Phew. The duo are still in search of a space, but are targeting Franklin Avenue in hopes of a May/June opening.
....But that, clearly, did not pan out
I'm calling Nostrand first. Classon is my second guess.
I'd put it in that new building on Classon at Dean, somewhere near there.
Definitely a good spot at Dean if the rent isn't loco bananas. The renderings seem to be a corner location. Beauty World?
Could be. But that would be a massive space. I think the LL of Beauty World is smart enough to rent to a business so established that it does not have to do Kickstarter.
I bet they'll have some really delicious and experimental cocktails. They got me, I'm donating for the love of alcohol and sweets. They went straight for my heart.
Hmmm... the rendering looks to me like the corner of Franklin and St. John's, where Climax used to be. A solid option, considering Barboncino doesn't serve desserts other than gelato and its patrons may welcome a dessert spot just a few steps away.
I wish this would come to the Beauty World spot! Alas, it will probably be at the old Climax spot.
The old Climax spot will hopefully soon be filled and very expensive, so that's out.I'd put it in the old Chavella's space on Classon, but I don't think there is enough foot traffic there.
Let it be on Nostrand. Franklin is doomed with starbucks moving in.
When did kickstarting a restaurant become the thing to do? I'm sorry but if you can't make it with traditional funding your in trouble.
The thing is I feel like some of these restaurants/establishments already HAVE the traditional funding, through investors, friends, savings etc but Kickstarter allows them to gain some extra investment. This is why you see a $20,000 Kickstarter make $5000 over a few weeks and then suddenly with one day to go, they've raised $20,100. I think it's fine, however these places can get in the game they should do it. Kickstarter will be tradition eventually
Because the media uses Kickstarter as a source of "what is likely to open" it is a way for new businesses to obtain free advertising.
Needless to say, you wouldn't want to run a Kickstarter campaign that failed, because that would be negative publicity.
Yeah, Kickstarter is a good way to build early committed customers. Also to raise awareness that you're about to move in.
They have reached their goal:http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/butterandscotch/butter-and-scotch-the-home-stretch/posts
...and I'll take the bait and give them the publicity they crave.
BTW, their rendering seems to be based on where they would like to locate; they don't seem to have actually found a place. YET.
It doesn't have the foot traffic, I'd want, but I am nonetheless hoping that that they have considered the storefront on the corner of Rogers and Union.
Welcome to actually posting, not just lurking, Allison
Hey Allison, welcome to the hood. I had Keavy's margarita lime cupcake at Smorgasburg and it was one of the best cupcakes I ever had. Please have it at the new spot.
It isn't quite as mind blowing as the transformation of a drug corner at Franklin and Lincoln into a Caribbean restaurant run by white people, but it is damn close.
But just south of Eastern Parkway, a scant block from the neighborhood's blossoming business district, residents describe an area plagued by drug deals and ringing gunshots."The kid who was shooting out here, he shot at the kid and he missed and then he came back ... I was standing there when this boy shot at him. I was in my pajamas," said longtime resident Mildred Ross, who said the early-morning shootout was one of nearly a dozen that erupted on her block this fall.
*drool* finally a reason to cross the border to the other side of EP
The owner stated that would be too large of an undertaking at the moment.Hence, he is looking for renters.
Hmm. My money is on NEXT summer.
I hope they do well. Anything that helps drive more people south of ep is more than welcome. Who knows maybe a couple of people might even decide to move in too.
Yea, cause no one lives south of EP (eyeroll). What does that even mean, "a couple of people might even decide to move in"
What I meant was that the south side of ep is seriously lacking in foot traffic. take a look you might even agree.
I can't even. I just.....I will not be able to stay in this area if people with that attitude take over.
Regardless, there is now a dessert bar for them if it matches their means and preferences....
Will children be allowed in during the morning bakery/coffee portion?
