Bay Ridge Old Timer Hinsch's Gets New Lease on Life

New, 1 comment

There's good news in the world of classic New York restaurants this morning. Someone has stepped up to save Hinsch's, a greasy spoon in Bay Ridge that opened in the late 1940's and closed at the end of September when the family that owns the place cited "Current economic conditions, customers changing eating patterns, and our desire to retire early" for the shutter. The Brooklyn Paper reports that Garart Bell, the owner of nearby restaurant Skinflint's, and his two partners will reopen the restaurant soon, potentially even by November 1.

They say the menu will not change.
