Glenn Markman on Dellarocco’s, the Beach Shack, the Nets, and Brooklyn’s Future

Karl and his cam got quite the workout Friday evening. Following his visit to the opera in Brooklyn Bridge Park and Dellarocco’s “soft opening”, he asked Glenn Markman about his views on his and his partners’ new venture, Dellarocco’s, and got an answer that extended to discussion of the new Beach Shack, Brooklyn Bridge Park, downtown Brooklyn, the Nets, the Bossert Hotel, Brooklyn real estate in general, and prospects for the future. Video after the jump.

    Best of luck to them. We love the location and ambience of the Heights Cafe but the menu could use some refreshing I think.

    I stopped in to Dellarocco’s today (not open for business quite yet) and spoke to Pasquale who was behind the bar. He was very friendly and said they would be open tomorrow. The restaurant is quite nice, open and airy and seems like it will be a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. Thanks, Glenn.

    I saw Karl J this morning and he told me about the new buzz in the neighborhood….”Dellarocoos”. I stopped by and was very impressed by the atmosphere, the staff and the food. The restaurant will open offricially tomorrow.
    Best of luck to Dellaroccos…A new restaurant is always appreciated.

    Really wanted to like this place but had a really poor experience there already – went with a party of three and watched from the bar as several larger parties were seated before us, even though they Clearly arrived after us

    Even after checking back with the hostess, they put groups of 4, 6 and 8 at the open tables, ahead of our group of three

    Pizza was watery too – unfortunate…

    I’m sure they’ll do alright, I really wanted to like it but was Really not happy at being told “15 minutes” for a table and then waiting for almost an hour – not cool

    That sounds like the classic Seinfeld Chinese restaurant episode :)
