Update: Brooklyn Bridge Park Summer Concession Round-Up

Nature is nice, but more foodie concessions are coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park this summer! In February, BHB reported on a burgeoning line-up that includes: Brooklyn Bridge Wine Bar and Blue Marble Ice Cream at Pier 1; Calexico Carne Asada at the Main & Plymouth streets entrance in DUMBO; Fornino-The Art & Science of Pizza at Pier 6; Ample Hills Creamery at Pier 5; and Luke’s Lobster and No. 7 Sub near the Fulton Ferry entrance. As well, Smorgasburg returns to the Tobacco Warehouse on Sundays, starting April 7.

Regina Myer, BBP president, now notes, “With the addition of these concessions and the return of Brooklyn Bridge Wine Bar, Calexico Carne Asada, Blue Marble Ice Cream, and Smorgasburg, Brooklyn Bridge Park is quickly becoming a destination for the foodie in all of us.”

DNAinfo reports: Ample Hills Creamery is set to sell unique ice cream concoctions like vanilla honey ice cream with pieces of homemade cornbread and candied bacon, and Prosecco and grapefruit sorbet with a twist of lemon and a hint of ginger, from Pier 5 next to the park’s new hibachi-style grill tops, reclaimed wood picnic tables and sport fields.

Fornino Pizza will be stationed at Pier 6 on the roof of the park’s warming hut.
Luke’s Lobster will sling seafood rolls and clam chowder from the Smokestack Building under the Brooklyn Bridge alongside No. 7 Sub, which will serve tasty sandwiches.

“There’s nothing better than a lobster roll with a water view, and we’re excited to finally be able to offer that from the Brooklyn side of the river,” Ben Conniff, a partner at Luke’s Lobster, said in a statement. “BBP has done an amazing job picking the city’s best food and we can’t wait to be part of that tradition.” (Photo: Luke’s Lobster)

    Can’t wait for Ample Hills! Love going to Prospect Heights for their ice cream.

    Ample Hills makes some of the most amazingly delicious ice cream — glad to see that in the neighborhood.

    But why Luke’s and not Brooklyn’s own Red Hook Lobster Pound?

    So is the pizza place replacing Bark hot dogs at Pier 6? I’m not sure which building is the “warming hut” but Bark had a nice presence there last summer with the picnic tables on the roof.

    With all these choices, maybe we can do without the Mexican restaurant usurping the boards of Fulton Ferry Landing. (Even when they’re closed during the wintertime, that huge dining area is still fenced off.)

    What percentage of the profits does the “park” get? Or is it a straight rental fee? Or a combination of both? For a booth at a street fair, Bloomberg wants a fee and a percentage of profits.
