The popular Clinton Hill craft beer and specialty food grocer will be a new option close to Domino Park to grab a bite. Mekelburg’s seems like a smart addition to the area for picnickers wanting a sandwich or fresh food to go. Plus, we’re excited that they will house a large craft beer bar. The location in Clinton Hill typically features favorites like Oxbow and Evil Twin. From the Times:
Mekelburg’s, a grocery, bar and restaurant that opened in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, three years ago, is growing. In a larger space in Williamsburg, shelves will still be crammed with crackers and tinned seafood, and counters will dispense fine meats and cheeses. But the bar is double the size of the original. The new location, across from Domino Park, will be equipped with a gas-fueled kitchen, to enable it to turn out what Alicia Mekelburg calls “bigger food” like whole porchetta. They are also installing an espresso bar, with a window overlooking the street.
Mekelburg’s 319 Kent Avenue (South Third Street), Williamsburg, Brooklyn, opening in September.
