The four food and drink vendors for the Pier 1 portion of Brooklyn Bridge Park have been announced. Of the two most ballyhooed applicants, one, Blue Marble Ice Cream, made the cut, but Red Hook Lobster Pound didn’t. Other winners are: Manhattan-based Ditch Plains, which describes itself as a “New York-style fish shack”; Carroll Gardens’ Calexico Carne Asada, whose win may occasion a prolongation of their Cinco de Mayo celebration; and Pier 66 Maritime, which will run a “seasonal wine bar.”
More details, including a map showing “approximate locations” of the vendors (there’s no official map yet), can be found at Brownstoner.
Addendum: for lobster roll fanatics, Eater reports that Ditch Plains will be serving up their version of the New England treat. Will they be as good as Red Hook Lobster Pound’s? We’ll see. Eater also provides a link to Ditch Plains’ Drop In Menu, which is what they plan to offer at the Park.
