Brooklyn Kitchen Consolidates; Moving Sale Starts Today

When the Williamsburg butcher/grocery/cooking school/culinary mecca Brooklyn Kitchen Labs/Meat Hook opened last November, we wondered what would become of the quaint, small, but laudably stocked original Brooklyn Kitchen just a few blocks away. The answer was revealed by a sign spotted at the new complex last weekend, advertising a BIG SALE at the original location, 616 Lorimer Street, from February 18 to 22. By the end of the month, a salesperson said, all remaining inventory would be shuttled over to the commodious industrial space at the Labs, which already sells everything from xanthan gum to Goldie’s soaps, made with beef tallow courtesy of the Meat Hook.
