Jim Mamary and Alan Harding's French pioneer Patois closed in Carroll Gardens this January, but the owners have secured a new space in Little Italy, reports Lost City. A message posted on the former Brooklyn spot explains, “we are now open 7 days and feature the same great food and wine and are run by the same rude owners. We now have a full-bar so you can start your meal with a dirty, Ketel One martini straight up!” Lost City scoffs at unlimited mimosas now available for $12.95 during weekend brunch. (“I'm sorry, did the owners lose their sense of taste on the trip over the East River?”) South Brooklyn has more than enough classy brunch options to avoid the trek. Doesn’t he know Manhattanites clamor for drunken brunch?
