Burg's Brick Oven Gallery is Very Alive
We were saddened to see a report in the Brooklyn Paper that the Brick Oven Gallery on Havemeyer Street in Williamsburg had shut down and equally happy to find out from a reader that it was a bogus rumor. We stopped in last night to check on one of our favorite Brooklyn pizza and sandwich places and found that it is doing quite well thank you and that the Brooklyn Caviar was as good as always. (The photo above was taken last night around 8:30PM.) The rumor may have started because the restaurant had a phone problem a while back and had to get a new phone number. The owner and staff weren't aware that they'd been declared dead and were dumbfounded by the report. The Brick Oven Gallery is at 33 Havemeyer.
