Famed French chef Daniel Boulud announced his plan to open an elegant restaurant in the space soon to be vacated by Starbucks on Montague Street between Henry and Hicks. “With its reasonable rents and reputation for fine dining, Montague is the ideal spot for my first venture into Brooklyn,” Boulud said. He also mentioned proximity to Key Food as a source of emergency supplies. “I take pride in always using the freshest of ingredients,” he added.
Borough President Marty Markowitz issued the following statement: Bienvenue, Monsieur Boulud. Comme il doux!
