The Shutter: Brick Oven Bar B Que Already Doneski?

New, 4 comments

Gowanus: Back in February Brownstoner brought word that a new barbecue and brick oven pizza joint would be opening in a warehouse on 3rd Ave and 6th St much to the delight of folks in the nabe starved for a new restaurant. But apparently they weren't starved enough. Early reviewers of Brick Oven Bar B Que on Gothamist, Yelp, and Chowhound weren't too fond of the food and the "just plain weird" decor. And now, just two and a half months after opening, we learn from a tipster (and his shot of a real estate ad over the warehouse) that the charming, though perhaps ill-conceived, experiment has already shuttered. Back during the opening Gothamist wrote: "Rumor has it that Mr. Maropakis turned down millions for the space, opting to open the restaurant instead as a labor of love." Did he decided to cash in on those millions?
