Prospect, a new restaurant opening in Clinton Hill not far from BAM serving New American Cuisine and artisinal burgers, will be open by early September (if not sooner).
I got a kick out of the name because one of the first nouveau Park Slope restaurants back in the day (1980s and 1990s) was called New Prospect located on Flatbush Avenue near Grand Army Plaza. They later had a take-out/gourmet shop on Seventh Avenue. New Prospect was way ahead of its time serving organic and locally grown food with a decidedly Moosewood meets the Silver Palatte vibe.
This new restaurant called Prospect, owned by two high school friends, will feature organic and locally grown foods in what sounds like an attractive environment.
The decor will feature reclaimed wood from the Coney Island Boardwalk. The walls of the restaurant will be adorned with early 20th century photographs from the collection of Peter Cohen.
The menu by Chef Kyle McClelland will draw from local sources, including Greenpoint’s Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, Brooklyn Grange, and Sunset Park’s Bright Farm. The restaurant’s location is 773 Fulton Street between South Portland and South Oxford.
