There's a new space in Brooklyn for creatives to gather and be creative, and that space is Concrete. It's a nicely designed, art-and-plant-filled warehouse on the Bed Stuy-Bushwick border, and it's primarily a live music venue, brunch spot and Sicilian eatery... it's open now, with more offerings to come down the line.
For now, stop by when in the area and in need of a bourbon-Earl Grey honey syrup-lemon or rye-blood orange cocktail. If you're hungry, know that the food offerings are indulgent and Italian: think heaping platters of rigatoni with bolognese ragu, meatballs, fried rice balls to dip in red sauce.
Concrete Brooklyn, now open, 906 Broadway (at Arion Pl)
