    Studio Brooklyn….on vacation? Or moved to Bucks county with DIBS?

  • Banet

    I imagine they view a difference between an alarm beeping and an alarm going off full blast.

    But really, what would the police do? Break down the door?

  • StudioBrooklyn

    I’m here, what’s up?

  • Andrew Porter

    This just in: The Brooklyn Paper reports (brace yourself) that the Bossert’s owners are looking for another operator for the hotel, which means more delays in the opening date.

    What a big surprise. Details here:

    It’s good that the Brooklyn Paper is keeping on top of this. It’s been sitting there unoccupied for what seems like years now. And it probably will be for another year, at least.

    Eater.com has just published a nice, if selective, guide to restaurants in the Heights: https://ny.eater.com/maps/best-restaurants-bars-brooklyn-heights-nyc

  • DIBS

    And I don’t live only in Bucks County. Just FYI if you are keeping track.

  • DIBS

    Nice but sad they missed Jack The Horse and Sociale.

  • StudioBrooklyn

    And all this time Heights Guy had me thinking my invitation had just been lost in the mail!

  • Heights Guy

    Those are absurd omissions. Sociale is bad, but to omit JTH is about as bad as it gets.

  • Heights Guy

    It was a slow day at the office.

  • DIBS

    What’s your beef with Sociale?

  • Heights Guy

    I really like Sociale. I’m saying the omission was bad.

  • DIBS

    Ahhhh, OK. Sorry I misunderstood. I love Sociale. And JTH.

  • StudioBrooklyn

    Well I’m flattered but believe me, I can’t speed up time in anyone’s office. I’m much too expensive.

  • Jorale-man

    Agreed – those are big omissions. I’d vote for River Deli ahead of Queen too as long as we’re comparing Italian.

  • DIBS

    Armando’s over Queen too

  • adg23

    hi dibs

  • Annanymouse

    Where can I get a decent takeout salad around here? Too bad there’s no Chopt or similar nearby. Is there?

  • B. Franklin

    Don’t flatter yourself, we’re not!

  • Banet

    Lots of options. Monty Q on Montague. Lassen & Hennigs on Montague. Court Order on Court Street. Hale & Hearty on Remsen. HoneyGrow on Joralemon. Nature’s Grill next to Trader Joe’s.

  • Andrew Porter

    I went to Key Food today and “Gregory” is gone! No one there knew what had happened to “him”—or if they did, they weren’t talking. A couple people on the line with me said the figure always weirded them out. Here, straight from the BHB in 2013, is what I’m talking about:
