Brooklyn Warehouse ditches brunch

lunch and dinner to be the mainstays


“At the core of it, we want to reallocate the resources that we put towards brunch into the other services we prefer to do,” explains George Christakos of Brooklyn Warehouse (2795 Windsor Street, 446-8181), the classy and casual eatery where lunch and dinner can be had, as well as, at least until the end of 2010, brunch. “There are a lot of places that do a great brunch. There’s definitely a lot of demand for it...but it can be overwhelming. We have 35 to 40 seats, so what ends up happening is there’s a line-up. It creates an atmosphere that’s rushed. Brunch seems to be that everyone wants to be in and out in 20 minutes. We do everything from scratch here, it’s really hard to do that with the expectation that some of the brunch-goers have.” Makes a lot of sense, especially from a proponent of slow food. Christakos intends to discontinue brunch come January and focus more on lunch and dinner, as well as open up an extra night for dinner, Sundays from January 9.
