Brooklyn Nibbles: Williamsburg Roundup
There's one brand new restaurant opening in the Burg we want to note and a couple of things to get caught up on:
1) Fiore is supposed to be opening today at 284 Grand Street (above). It's an Italian restaurant that traces it lineage to Baci & Abracci up the block. We haven't seen the menu but items that have been noted run heavily toward seafood. Some entrees include orata with veggies in shellfish lime broth, salmon with artichokes prosciutto and olives, monkfish with roasted garlic in a lemon preserve caper sauce and salmon Steak with olive pesto. There's also a very nice sounding spinach ravioli in brown butter sage sauce. We caught a glimpse inside yesterday and it looked very, very nice.
2) Miranda, another restaurant leaning heavily on an Italian menu is now open on Berry Street at N. 9, across the street from Silent H. Photo below.
3) Another Bedford Avenue bodega/corner store has undergone a morph into an upscale deli/food store, the second in recent months to go upscale. The results of the change at Bedford Fruits & Vegetables are in the bottom photo.
4) The Endless Summer Taco Truck is said to have set up shop at Bedford Ave. and N. 7 Street. We didn't see it yesterday, but word of its existence has been widely emailed around.
