Restaurant To Open At One Brooklyn Bridge Park

Word comes to us via the Commercial Observer that a new restaurant will be opening at One Brooklyn Bridge Park, a.k.a. 360 Furman Street. The 5,000 square foot eatery will occupy the northwest corner of the building (photo), facing the soon to open marina between Piers Five and Three of Brooklyn Bridge Park. Indeed, the owners of the restaurant will be the operators of the marina, One 15 Marina. We’ll give you more details as they become available.

    I wonder who their target audience will be – the residents of BBP condos, the park-goers or the marina boaters? They seem like fairly disparate groups. The neighborhood could use a decent family-style restaurant. Seafood might be a logical fit there.

    I was confused by this statement: “In order to make the deal go through, the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation had to give the green light since the restaurant will eventually connect to the park.” What does it mean that the restaurant will connect to the park? It’s in the One BBP building. Are they building some sort of physical connector? A private walkway? The CPEX people make this “connected” point twice in the article (“We are very excited to play a part in the restaurant that will be connected to the city’s first new marina in more than 20 years…”).

    It’s a difficult spot for anything other than seasonal businesses, with very low foot traffic during cooler months. A restaurant will have to be of the “destination” variety in order to sustain itself during the winter time. I always thought it would be a good space for a school. I believe a yoga studio is going in soon as well.

    Good points – there are really 5 or 6 good months down there. It seems like a grocery market-restaurant combo could do well too – BBP residents might patronize it on a regular basis.

    The only sense I can make of it is that the marina, which is part of the Park, and the restaurant, are under the same ownership.

    But why would that mean that Parks Department approval is required for the Marina to rent the restaurant space? I can’t help but wonder if there’s some additional giveaway to private interests being alluded to here.

    The yoga studio backed out.

    “fairly disparate groups” I’m not sure I agree with that. True some who use the park will not want to dine there. However, the condo owners and the boat owners are both groups of financial means, as well as many of the park goers.

  • Eddyde

    My guess is, because 1BBP is in the park the Parks department must approve any business wanting to open there?

  • Banet

    That is not the case.

  • Eddyde

    ok then what is the case?

  • Banet

    The park has no say in who 1BBP rents to. They *might* have a say in the other buildings but this one pre-existed the park and can do whatever their zoning allows.

  • e

    That makes it even more peculiar (in my view) that the Marina needed Parks Dept approval. Might the BH Blog call the Parks Dept / Marina for a comment on exactly what change is being approved?

    Seems like a good idea, but of course will depend in what it actually is. Related: the liquor store there has one of the best reasonably priced wine selections in the neighborhood. Their $14 and under table is terrific, and I pretty much no longer buy wine anywhere else.

    I’ve always thought that this spot would be perfect for a Rosa Mexicana / Dos Caminos type place that would have outdoor seating in the summer.
