This is the first time you’re going to hear about eating lobster agnolotti in a spot named after an 18th-century mill today.
Might even be the last.
Direct your attention to Freek’s Mill, an industrial yet charming spot that’s more than ready for you and [date’s name here] to sit inside of it, open now in Gowanus.
Now, please, step in, and note all your quintessential industrial-Brooklyn decor elements: exposed brick, wood beams, that enormous pipe running through the length of the place. Head past the stacks of firewood and settle into a two-top by the bar. Behind it, someone’s managed to hide 70% whiskey inside of the Old Fashioned, and assembled the perfect smoky hibiscus-mezcal margarita. Big things happening behind it.
Or make your way to the back room, where you can watch roasted pork jowl, sunchoke-lobster agnolotti and Vietnamese iced coffee cake fly out of the open kitchen and into the space between you and your date.
But first, make your way inside this slideshow. It’s where you’ll see 13 pertinent photographs of all the things we’ve mentioned.
Pertinence: the hallmark of a Monday.
