It’s no secret that the Gowanus’s first clam shack, Littleneck, has been very successful. Just last week they were in the New Yorker and the week before it was the New York Times or maybe it was the New York Post? No one can really remembers what came out when at this point, it’s just abundantly clear that Littleneck is a big hit! But the clam shack owner’s, who started their success with a kickstarter, aren’t just content with one popular place in Gowanus. Just a few doors down from Littleneck inside what was once Tony’s bagels, construction is underway on some type of eatery (maybe with tapas) by the clam shack boys and another investor. Details about what food and drinks that will be served are not yet set in stone…or at least being kept secret for the time being. If you poke your head inside the new venue you will find a wooden bar on the right side and some rural aesthetics, similar to the atmosphere found in Littleneck. Unlike Littleneck though, this place has a nice backyard, which we are sure the clam shack boys and their new investor will design to be a romantic hideaway underneath a glorious Gowanus sky. Right now the eatery is scheduled to open at some point in July.
This place will join a growing scene in the area that includes: Brooklyn Robot Foundry, Cotta-Bene’s, Twig Terrariums, Runners & Stone (coming in Fall), Monte’s, Gowanus Grove, Littleneck, Canal Bar, Film Biz Recycling, Keur Djembe Drum Shop, Triomph Fitness, Swoon, 718 Cyclery, Juice Haven, Brooklyn Boulder, Littleneck, Gowanus Arts Building, and so many more!
