Farm on Adderley Owners Launching Tiny Ditmas Bistro

Ditmas Park is taking another step toward being the next big Brooklyn neighborhood with an addition to its scant restaurant scene. There now is the Farm on Adderley, Picket Fence, and a guy that cooks ribs on the street outside of left-wing cafe Vox Pop. But help is on the way, reports the Ditmas Park Blog. Gary Jonas and Allison McDowell, the owners of the Farm on Adderley, are planning on opening a small bistro on Newkirk Avenue, currently best known for its laundromats and ill-stocked Indian groceries. The two will be operating partners with Pacifico and Patois owner Jimmy Mamary. We asked McDowell about it, and she explained the plan: Its going to be tiny. Were not doing a big, family-friendly neighborhood restaurant there. Itll be more grown-up, European, but there wont be a liquor license, just beer and wine. Wed like Tom Kearney, our chef at Adderley, to do the menu, but thats still up in the air. So, apparently, is the name: Were suggesting the Barn, but only because Lentils & More is worse.
