Montague Street’s Heights Café To Reboot With New Menu, New Chef And A New Vibe

After a renovation six weeks in the making, Heights Café will re-open next week presenting Robert C. Weiner as the restaurant’s new executive chef.

After almost 20 years, Heights Café owners Greg, Glenn and Martin Markman and Joseph Secondino say that now was an ideal time to revitalize the restaurant. With a completely renovated interior, new furniture and fixtures, and new menu, Heights Café owners believe that patrons new and old will be delighted by the eatery’s transformation.

Managing owner Greg Markman explained that the new Heights Café will continue to be a comfortable and convenient neighborhood destination offering a menu with universal appeal. By improving on quality and creativity while emphasizing a variety of Brooklyn Brewery beers on tap, Markman says that Heights Café will continue to be a favorite local gathering spot.

Chef Weiner, born in Brooklyn but sporting culinary success at celebrated Manhattan eateries Union Square Café and Restaurant Raphael as well as the Height’s own Henry’s End, has completely revamped the menu.

Some of the inspired dishes that Weiner plans for Heights Café clientele include Maine Lobster Roll, the ever-popular Heights Burger, Veal and Wild Mushroom Meatloaf, Seafood Gumbo and Risotto with Crab, Lime & Chili Oil.

Chef Weiner’s early morning menu will feature breakfast favorites with an an eclectic twist: Eggs Benedict, Homemade Corned Beef Hash, Chorizo Sausage Frittata and Brioche French Toast.

    its on montague street, of course the prices are inflated, to match the rent…or maybe you would like there to be no locally owned places in the neighborhood?! or better yet, another vacant store!

    Please, the front of the house is horrible. It’s hard but some do get it right. You have to measure turn over.

    I agree the food was underwhelming. Ony dined there once and lunched twice. My guess is they will upscale to take advantage of the Bossert clientele eventually. Realistically, prices must rise if food improves, but I’ve almost given up hope that Montague St. will ever have good restaurants again. I remember when Armandos had good food and Al Mallo was boss, and Foffe’s was good too. We really don’t need yet another burger joint or Tapas bar or sushi joint.

    The service there was always good and the eastern european waiters were much better than the ones next door, so doubt they were rejects. The menu just couldn’t compete with Pain Q, so glad they are revamping. Looking forward to having more loud buzy restaurants on Montague which is what high street is suppose to have. Those looking for peace can then move to the new Pier 6 development.
