Did you know?

The  General Greene, 229 dekalb ave. brooklyn, ny 11205  tel.(718) 222-1510

Hi all…did you know The General Greene has a grocery?? I went to the restaurant yesterday only to find the back of the space totally revamped. I spoke with Tina, the manager, and she let me know they will be converting the entire stock in this four month old space to feature – get this – only local items. It’s a small space but well stocked. There is a selection of cheeses and meats, local produce, a large selection of Asian ingredients, and some semi-prepared foods (made specifically for small spaces and few eaters – genius!) Stay tuned because it will soon be a CSF stop. It will also serve as a pre-order pick up space for a certain local/sustainable focused butcher shop. 😉
