The Brooklyn Paper has some more details on American BBQ and Beer Co., an ambitious new restaurant slated to open next April at the corner of Adams and Willoughby in Downtown Brooklyn, a major part of the neighborhood’s DoBroRestoBoo. Last week, the restaurant’s owners got the green light from Community Board 2 for their liquor license. Part of the second floor has been demolished to make room for the build-out, which, in addition to smokers, will include a wood-burning oven, lobster tanks, an on-premise bakery, a growler station, and perhaps most saliently, a deep-fried turkey station. “We’re hoping it becomes a Brooklyn institution,” says owner Mark Advent, “It’s barbecue without the shtick.” [Brooklyn Paper, Earlier]
