A BHB tipster told us last December about the arrival of Boneheads BBQ to 93 Court Street. While the opening has been delayed, the Brooklyn Eagle’s Lore Croghan writes a fascinating piece about how the Ditmas Park based landlords are choosing who gets to rent from them. Also in the article an update on Boneheads’ progress:
Brooklyn Eagle: In March the city Buildings Department disapproved a plan to replace 93 Court’s storefront, redo interiors with a new drop ceiling, partitions, finishes and equipment and make roof and stair repairs.
The franchisee is making “amendations” to their plan, Vendikos said.
Will it really cost $1 million to make the space that housed a deli fit for use as a restaurant, as a source suggested? “I wouldn’t know one way or another,” he said.
We called Boneheads’ Atlanta headquarters and one of the Brooklyn franchisee partners to ask for a revised timetable for their Court Street restaurant.
“I can tell you that Boneheads is still planning on going into the space,” said company publicist Kelly Ronna. “Unfortunately, the franchisees ran into structural problems, which has caused construction to be delayed.”
