Prospect-Lefferts Garden: Get your pitchforks ready neighbors. According to the blog Hawthorne Street, Jim Mamary, the Brooklyn pioneer and empire-builder, has yet another new property. He most recently made headlines for his protracted battle with Brooklyn's CB6 over a liquor license for his planned Oyster Bar in Carroll Gardens, so perhaps he thinks he'll have an easier time off Flatbush Ave:
"Enduro owner Jim Mamary has signed a lease for 47 Lincoln Road, adding another to the long list that makes up his Brooklyn restaurant 'empire.' The new barbecue restaurant will be in-between Enduro and K-Dog, where the nail salon used to be. The only other thing I know about the place is that the chef is named 'Richard.' Will it be authentic barbecue? Hard to imagine...opening isn't expected for four to six months, which probably means ten."Mamary has said that once a nabe looks hot, he likes to "grab every space that becomes available," so we wouldn't be surprised if he adds another property or two around here to his portfolio.
