A First Look Inside Brooklyn Star

Former Momofuku partner Joaquin Baca hopes to make it on his own starting this month with the opening of Brooklyn Star in Williamsburg. In the latest issue, Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld analyze his penny-pinching start-up costs and use three words (Dr Pepper ribs) to entice us into wanting to see the rest of the southern-accented offerings. A sample menu is below; we’ll plug in the full version when we have it. Now, click through the slideshow to see his renovation of the onetime pizzeria.
