    Gowanus will be getting its third BBQ joint in as many years on Wednesday, June 19th; after several months of construction and set back by Hurricane Sandy, Dinosaur BBQ will finally be opening, according to Brooklyn Paper.

    We’ve been eyeing the construction process since it first started, and our mouths have been watering the whole time. We saw the new memorial mural for Raul Vasquez go up, and lately we’ve even seen what look to be Dinosaur BBQ employees leaving the venue after what we can only conjecture was a hard day of training in the pit. Gotta make sure those sausages come out just right! They’re the undisputed highlight of Dinosaur’s uptown Manhattan locale, if you ask us.

  • Vodka in Sunset Park

  • Root Hill Burger Opens Today

    Late Monday evening Root Hill Burger announced via their Facebook page that they will finally be opening their doors today. Root Hill Burger’s build has been watched by both Park Slope and Gowanus residents as another welcone addition to 4th Avenue between President St. and Carroll Street. For neighbors it’ll be another happy staple for those that love Root Hill’s Cafe and those that love meat. Despite just opening Grub Street declared in it’s fall preview in August that Root Hill Burger would had 9 burgers on the menu. And those that attended the recent Film Biz Recycling Fundraising event Lights, Camera, Auction actually got to taste some of Root Hill Burger’s sliders. We didn’t get a chance ourselves to get a taste at this event, but that’s cause they went, so darn fast. Most likely cause people loved them!

    Photos of the interior of Root Hill Burger appeared on their facebook page shortly after the announcement they would be opening.
