The beacon of baby carrots and affordable olive oil at the end of Van Brunt Street will once again shine brightly come March 1, Carroll Gardens Patch reports. The 52,000-square-foot grocery store was inundated with five feet of harbor water and storm surge during Hurricane Sandy, and the former tobacco warehouse was hit with fifteen-foot waves. The store was gutted, dried out, and beefed up — a second-floor restaurant may even still be in the works. “Man,” the store’s account tweeted this morning, “we’ve missed you.” [CGP via DNAinfo, Earlier, Earlier]
