Gothamist Weighs In On Atlantic Avenue’s Red Gravy Restaurant

Saul Bolton’s new eatery, Red Gravy, which opened at 151 Atlantic Avenue in December, got props from the Zagat Blog earlier this week. Now Gothamist weighs in, also offering some keen pics and the dinner menu.

Gothamist: “Chef Saul Bolton, the talented toque who runs Saul, one of the first Michelin-starred restaurant in Brooklyn, has opened a new joint in Brooklyn Heights called Red Gravy. The 75-seat trattoria is located in the space formerly occupied by Mezcal at 151 Atlantic Avenue, and it’s not a flashy affair. Exposed brick walls and wooden ceiling beams, simple chandeliers and a modest bar layout create a casual framework for Bolton’s seasonal Italian menu. Considering Bolton’s impeccable reputation and the lack of competition on this stretch of Atlantic, we’re not surprised to hear Red Gravy’s been mobbed.”

    It would’ve been funnier/less stupid if you had said, “There will be two hits: me hitting you, and you hitting the ground.” But who am I to question your internet muscles? I’m sure you’re super tough.

    ColumbiaHeightster, It may have been “funnier/less stupid” but it would have further conveyed the wrong message. I never meant it as a physical threat to anyone. Just as general character background. I see how my statement was misconstrued, for that I apologize. I never use violence as a way to settle an argument. I meant to say; I am not afraid to repel imminent violence, by striking first. Not a pansy.

    I’m with Arch Stanton. It is basically a question of respect for others. The unlucky couple or family celebrating an anniversary or birthday, the couple out on an important date: dressed for the occasion and confronted by hipsters and yuppies who didn’t shower or put on fresh clothes to dine in a nice restaurant. I have even seen people take off their shoes and put their bare feet on the chairs, or actually (ugh!) pick their feet in public.
    These people are becoming a large presence in our neighborhood, with their sense of entitlement, their double-wide strollers blocking others on the streets, they are like the characters from Beverly Hillbillys- trash living in multi-million dollar apartments and houses.
    Their sense of entitlement pervades their lifestyle. Talk on the phone continuously while dining, annoying others. Dressing like slobs in the few really nice restaurants in the neighborhood.
    I refuse to patronize Tazza Clark Street, because of the slovenly looking hipster waiters and waitresses, not too clean, tattooed and pierced. Not to mention they keep unsold desserts in their case for days, rather than give them to a food bank, or throw them out, as do most places.
    I prefer Starbucks, even though it is a chain, for the quality of their staff. Clean cut, clothes clean and pressed, well groomed, and polite and friendly.

    My god you people are something else. They just need to gate off all access to BK Heights so none of the “bad” people can come in.

    You people have no clue what a hipster even is let alone know where they live. Ever been to Williamsburg on a Saturday night? That is the hipster crowd.

    I am pretty heavily tattooed myself. Does that mean I have to stay out of your restaraunt’s?

    If you were wearing a shirt jacket and pants, how would we ever know?
    You probably wouldn’t be happy living here. The population is older, richer (who else can afford these prices) and there is basically nothing to do at night. No clubs, no bars, and that will not change. Everything closes fairly early because people go to bed early. It’s that getting up early to go to work, school thing.
    Brooklyn Heights is basically a traditional community where people get up early in the morning, get dressed, get their kids off to school, and go to work. Come home, make dinner, and spend dinner time and the evening with their family. Many of us go away on weekends, thus the availability of parking spaces, and the absence of locals in restaurants.
    Because of its proximity to lower Manhattan, many of us work in law, banking, and finance, and live here because it is close, quiet, low key, and private.
    Tourists come here to explore the beautiful streets, admire the historic architecture and the spectacular views, and for my part, they are very welcome.
    So, if you like it, come and visit, or if you choose to live here, try and respect the culture of the place you have chosen. Don’t try to change it to suit your selfish needs. It has never worked. Zoning laws, the BH Association, the Landmarks Commission work hard to maintain the quality of life here.

    @Prom Gal- thanks you just confirmed my statement. BK Heights is for elitist, arrogant, “rich” people just like your stuck up self.

    How do you know that I don’t already live in the heights? How do you know what I do for a living and how much money I make? You are assuming since I stated that I have tattoos that I am not qualified to live in the Heights.
    Nor am I qualified to eat in the same restaraunt as you and your family.

    I could be a multi platinum musician for all you know that has more in my bank account than you will make in a lifetime.

    @Thruxton, don’t worry, the hipsters will long outlast PromGal. She’ll be long gone before the hipster fad loses steam. Those who don’t recognize and embrace change will forever be the ones complaining about such petty things like what other people wear to restaurants, and miss out on the instrinic value of a changing culture and neighborhood, whether the welcome it or not.
