The Randolph Brooklyn Will Open in South Williamsburg in Late Summer or Early Fall

Word is our favorite Brooklyn-ish Manhattan bar, the Randolph at Broome (and its sibling restaurant Randolph Beer), is headed to South Williamsburg. Co-owner Hari Kalyan tells us they'll open in the former home of BarCelona at 104 South 4th Street, near Bedford Avenue, in late summer or early fall. "It's going to be kind of just another Randolph," he says — with coffee, cocktails, "a robust craft beer program," and a full food menu.

The 2,500 square foot space will be the biggest Randolph yet, and the feeling will probably be "a little more grown-up" than the two Broome Street outposts, Kalyan says. A large kitchen equipped with gas means the culinary team should be able to have some fun (for instance, we hear there might be a bacon bar). In addition, expect outdoor seating and food delivery in the neighborhood.

This isn't the first space the team looked at in South Williamsburg, but this one "feels right," says Kalyan. "It feels now how Broome Street felt seven years ago," when the first Randolph opened, he recalls. And Kalyan's aware they'll be in good company in the neighborhood: "Guys like the Diner guys — Marlow — they're next-level; we're excited to be a part of it," he says.
