The Bounty, 131 greenpoint ave, brooklyn, ny 11222
They say that things come in threes. In north Greenpoint that seems to be true since we are about to have three seafood “shacks” within blocks of each other: Lobster Joint, the yet-to-open Archilles Heel and the just-opened The Bounty.
We poked our heads into The Bounty last night and the space looks great with several beers on tap (Peekskill ipa, Brooklyn Pennant, Jever and Kostritzer Schwarzbier) and a handful of traditional house cocktails including a Hemingway Daiquiri and a Dark & Stormy. For now, they are serving a limited menu of oysters, cheese plates, and other bar snacks. We’re told, the full kitchen will open in days to come. Here’s what we know so far:
A brand new seafood restaurant is slated to open soon in Greenpoint called The Bounty. Nika Carlson, who also operates The Drink in Williamsburg, tells Eater:
We’ll be serving seafood from the North Atlantic region, made with a hint of Southern charm. Our menu will include things like crab cakes, whole grilled fish, a raw bar (oysters, clams, etc), a burger, and eventually, when blue crabs are in season in the Chesapeake, Maryland-style steamed crabs.
The head chef is Eric Mann, who previously worked at Craft and Prune, and Roberta’s vet Kevin Ang is also on board as a baker/chef and co-owner. The other partners in this project are Adam Collison, also of The Drink, and Lance Hess, who previously worked for André Balazs Properties. The Bounty is slated to open by the end of the month at 131 Greenpoint Ave, just 50 feet away from the G-Train station.
In other Greenpoint restaurant news, we’re told Roebling Teas Room’s sister restaurant River Styx is coming soon with the Greenpoint branch of Fornino opening any day now. We’re still waiting for news about this venture, but in the meantime are loving the burger at the beautiful Alameda which taste like a Shake Shack burger cooked medium. In other words, delicious.
