Earlier this summer we surmised that the folks behind the Root Hill coffee shop and cafe at the corner of Carroll Street and 4th Avenue were working on a new burger joint just a couple of doors down. That GYFO dream came closer to reality over the weekend when the above sign — promising that “Root Hill Burger” would be opening “Very Soon!” — was posted on the storefront’s glass. The wooden construction panels that had been surrounding the storefront for the past few months have been removed as well.

Gowanus needs a good burger joint: Two 8 Two Burger, Mooburger and Bonnie’s are all just a little too far out of reach for regular neighborhood snackin’. Can’t wait.
