Here's a good rumor for a Tuesday morning: Are Walker Stern and Joseph Ogrodnek, the chefs behind the Cobble Hill hit Battersby, looking to open a second location in South Brooklyn? A tipster writes in that the rockstar duo is eyeing the long-shuttered former location of Vinzee's Magic Fountain on Court Street in Carroll Gardens, which would give them a much larger kitchen and dining room than the one at their Smith Street location. (Though the size of their kitchen hasn't kept Battersby from becoming quite the critical darling.)
Rumors of a second project from Stern and Ogrodnek have been swirling since the summer, and on the occasion of their first anniversary Stern told Eater, "We've definitely been laying down the groundwork for some stuff." No comment from them on this rumor.
