Brooklyn Brine Opening 'Pickle Shack' in Gowanus in July

New, 3 comments

Root Hill Burger, Gowanus's eight-month-old burger-specific offshoot of Root Hill Café, closed this weekend, the restaurant announced yesterday. Now, exactly one day after that announcement, there's already news of a new restaurant for that space and it's just oh-so-Brooklyn: the pickle-makers at Brooklyn Brine have taken over the location to open Pickle Shack, a brick-and-mortar restaurant and bar. Here's how owner Shamus Jones describes it to Park Slope Stoop:

It's a take on a neighborhood pub with elevated fare. We're going to have all kinds of crazy, new, and inventive pickles, killer sandwiches. We're infusing the beer with seasonal and micro-seasonal herbs and fresh hops.
That beer will be, exclusively, from Dogfish Head in Delaware. (Dogfish Head and Brooklyn Brine had previously announced a sandwich shop in North Williamsburg; presumably they've decided to go down to Gowanus instead?) Jones tells Park Slope Stoop that he's looking at a mid-July opening, so the turnaround from socially-conscious burgers to beer-infused pickles should take very little time.
