Dropped by Richard Boccato’s totally sweet new spot on Grand Street in Brooklyn on Tuesday and it was PERFECTION. First of all, the space feels so FRESH! From the moment you walk in the door, you’re struck by its gorgeousness! I’ve always been a fan of his LIC bar, Dutch Kills, but I love this more. Fresh Kills is brighter, more inviting and more modern. Kudos to Jesse Moore from Brooklyn Bespoke for the design work (she’s also a partner in the bar).
Once you settle at either the bar or at one of the booths, you are in for amazing cocktail magic. We had several – my fave was a smoky mezcal concoction served over a giant ice cube. In case you haven’t figured it out: I LOVE THIS PLACE!! Will be back often!!
