St. Anselm Rises From the Dead, While Seersucker Expands

The Robs chime in with some good news from Brooklyn today. First, southern-inspired restaurant Seersucker is launching a spinoff joint called Smith Canteen next week. The 14 seat spot will absorb the original restaurant's breakfast and lunch service and will serve house-baked pastries and coffee to start, followed by soups, salads, and sandwiches. It's housed in an old pharmacy.

Meanwhile, up in Williamsburg, Joe Carroll is giving his St. Anselm space another try. He closed the spot, which sits next to his bar Spuyten Duvil and across from his restaurant Fette Sau, last year when he couldn't secure a liquor license. Now, with license in hand, he'll open up on June 9 with a new concept. Before he focused on New Jersey specialties like sliders, double hot dogs (Newark-style), and disco fries, but now he'll serve "simply seasoned meats and seafood."
