A little late this year, the Antic will take place this Sunday, 2 October on (yes) Atlantic Ave from Hicks to 4th Ave. Billed as the largest street fair in NYC, it is comprised of local and national vendors intertwined with restaurants and boutiques, as well as music stages and cultural performances.

Come hungry for local delicacies and lots of beer–the fair runs from noon to 6pm come rain or shine. Here’s a schedule of events in case you want to do some planning. See you there (or at least pass you in the crowd).

In other foodie news, a strange combo of German and Italian tavern-y food will be the star of upcoming Buschenshank Brooklyn. Located on the corner of Court St and Sackett (where Area Yoga once lived), it is the brainchild of James McGown, the owner of South Brooklyn Pizza, according to Eater NY.

It will offer food from the northern Italian region of South Tyrol (where apparently they called taverns Buschenshanks). They’ll serve mostly Italian/Germanic fare like cured meat boards, pickled vegetables, knodel, sausages and Westphalian ham, and German beer and wine.
As a bonus, they’ll have live bands every week “focusing on German pop and rock but also European and American bands.” Look out for it in the coming weeks.

Sorry folks, had some technical problems with Bococaland the last few days. It looks like it’s fixed, but I had to allow some spam into the forums in the meantime. So PLEASE try to ignore all those lovely headlines under “Active Boards in the BococaLand Forums.” Like my favorite, “Recherche de Lamisil? Pas de probleme!” Anyhow, we’re back, so keep reading. Thanks and peace out.

Patois Space to Become Locavore Haunt

By , 22 September, 2011, 2 Comments

Back in the 90s, before Smith St. was the hopping, restaurant row it is today, Patois (255 Smith St. at Degraw) was the first of its kind. A comfy, neighborhood joint with OK food, but warm ambiance and friendly service. Now, of course, it’s closed. And Smith St., as well as the neighborhoods surrounding it, are full of places to eat and drink–some awesome, some not so much. So it seems appropriate that the Patois space will soon become another go-to eatery, this time following the popular locavore movement and offering French, Mediterranean, and Asian accents on its menu (which will include some pastas). Notice it will not take reservations (a serious pet peeve of mine but also a trend in the hood). Let’s just hope they have good cocktails and a comfy bar, cause if you plan on coming after 7:30pm on a weekend, we assume it will be a nice, long wait for a table.
According to the NY Times,

Joseph Ogrodnek, who left his job as executive chef at Anella in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, in February, has teamed up with Walker Stern, a friend and chef who also was at Anella, to open Battersby, a 30-seat spot for locavore cooking with influences from all over the map. The two were also in the same kitchen at Alain Ducasse at the Essex House, where Mr. Ogrodneck said they fine-tuned their French techniques. They hope that the restaurant will be ready for customers — no reservations — by mid-October. The name refers to the Philadelphia street where Mr. Ogrodnek grew up.

Remember the old Beastly Bites store in Cobble Hill (155 Court Street between Pacific and Dean)? Where kids would stop routinely to stare at the cats lounging in the window like doped-up starlets? Well, it moved across the street, and now the rumour is that preppy haven J. Crew may be taking over the digs. According to Brownstoner, the “masked correspondent” reports that the storefront “steps from Trader Joe’s being expanded in the back as the Wine Store space was. We hear on the street that J. Crew is the tenant playing with the space. Hope they sign.”
