2008_07_mamary.jpgThe Times runs a profile today on beleaguered Brooklyn restaurant owners Jim Mamary and Alan Harding, most recently in the news for their fight with Hoyt Street residents over a liquor license for a new oyster bar. In addition to highlighting just how much influence the team has had on the borough (after opening over a dozen restaurants over the last decade) we learn what's next: "Once a neighborhood gets hot, Mr. Mamary said, 'you need to grab every space that becomes available, or somebody else moves in'...Ditmas Park is 'ready to pop' he said...'Crown Heights looks pretty interesting. And I like Staten Island. It’s not ready for Manhattan style, but there’s room for the kind of establishment we have.'" [NYT]
