Inside the Restaurant


This Restaurant Has Closed

To all of our wonderful customers & friends,

Thank you for your unending support over the last decade. When we opened our doors in 2006, we could not have begun to imagine the trajectory of this little restaurant on Metropolitan Avenue. It has been an amazing journey for us both personally and professionally. And we know in our hearts that we could not have done any of this without you. This has been a decade long evolution, which succeeded because you cared to watch it grow and nurtured its creative process by showing up year after year in support of it.

Years ago, a man got up from his seat in the dining room, walked up to the kitchen, pointed at Danny and said in a real gruff voice, “You!…..You’re Ballsy!….Keep Going!” I couldn’t tell you who he was, but I can tell you he has been quoted for years, especially on the days that aren’t so easy.

So we didn’t get to finish 2015 the way we planned, but that’s okay, it was never an ending for us. We will be back. In the meantime, if you’re hungry tonight, might I suggest seeking out a little restaurant, maybe on a sleepy corner in Queens, maybe something you’ve never tried before or driven by a million times. Take a chance, and if you like what they do, tell them that they’re Ballsy! Tell them to Keep Going! Because Convenience is great, but Culture and Community are greater. And as far as cheering sections go, you have been the greatest!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! It has truly been a pleasure to serve you!

Until the next time,
The Browns
