Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern tell Eater NY they’re not moving full speed ahead on a follow-up to Battersby, their critically acclaimed Carroll Gardens restaurant, but for now, they’re most excited to report they’ve hired someone to run the restaurant’s pastry program, which includes pastas, breads, and desserts. Ogrodnek and Stern do in fact want to open another restaurant, but say they are waiting to “do it the right way so we don’t lose what we have here.” [Eater NY, Earlier]
