A stone’s throw from one of Brooklyn’s most photographed streets, High Tide opened earlier this month on the Dumbo waterfront at 1 Water Street, near Old Fulton Street. Open through the month of November, and then set to return next spring, the seasonal outdoor bar offers panoramic views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the skyline, along with food, cocktails, wine, and beer while the weather permits.
The new spot comes from brothers Alex and Miles Pincus of Crew hospitality, known for their seasonal boat bars and waterfront hangouts, including Grand Banks, docked off Hudson River Park; the new cocktail bar Holywater, an homage to New Orleans in Tribeca; and Island Oyster, on Governors Island. High Tide, their latest, seats 25 at a bar and 50 more at tables, with a short food menu of corn chowder, lobster rolls, and fries.
High Tide is open Wednesday to Sunday, from noon to 10 p.m., through November. — Melissa McCart, editor

A grocery chain is out in Flatbush, leaving locals concerned
Stop & Shop won’t be renewing its lease in Flatbush, leaving neighbors concerned about grocery access in the future, Bklyner reports. The grocery chain at 1009 Flatbush Avenue, at Tilden Avenue, will continue to operate throughout the holiday season with no official closing date on the calendar. “In this particular neighborhood, the loss of this grocery store when options are already limited is going to create a real food desert,” Alison Zaccone, communications director at Brooklyn non-profit CAMBA, told the publication.
