This morning, a Yelp review informed us that Dutch Kills was seemingly open, but the man who first told us about the place two years ago, Mr. Sasha Petraske, assured us that isnt the case (theyre waiting for stools, as you can see in the above shot). Now Gothamist reports that the throwback saloon will open in the next two weeks: Proprietor Richard Boccato of Milk & Honey fame promises an 1890's style saloon serving classic cocktails ($8-$10) using hand-cut ice, along with a selection of spirits, liqueurs, cordials, wine, and beer on tap (as well as by the bottle). There will also be live jazz and ragtime on select nights, and a small pub menu provided by Sage General Store, a local organic kitchen. Will there be a secret number? Come on, this is Queens.
