New Corner Store Alert!

A local resident has just purchased the lease on the corner store at Albermarle and McDonald. Previously, he operated a grocery in the Fort Greene/BAM area. Anyway, he is interested in hearing from the community about what we would find most beneficial to the area. Plans so far include gourmet coffees available by the pound, organic products like milk, cereals, juice, and eggs. We hear he is also expecting to have homemade soups, stuffed grape leaves, and cookies.

We think this is great news and would love to have a place to grab a healthy sandwich with some homemade sides. We really think this neighborhood would do well w something like an Olive Vine that would include falafel and Mediterranean salads even if it was only take out. We're sure if this new owner added easy lunch fare people would come in droves.
