    Carroll Gardens One Step Closer to CocktailsCarroll Gardeners are one step closer to their very own cocktail lounge today. Word from Alan Harding and Jim Mamary is that, while the recommendation for a liquor license won’t be assured until the full community board meets, the land-use committee voted in their favor yesterday. Harding, who is not a partner at present, will create a menu that doesn’t require a kitchen. “It’s a huge challenge, but you can do some great things without a gas-fired kitchen. We’re going to be as fancy and creative as we can.” Given the kind of success Jimmy’s and Marlow and Sons have with a limited kitchen, this may be the future of cocktail cooking. In the meantime, the lease is secured and Mamary and Harding predict a “late-spring” opening.

    Carroll Gardens May Get a Swank New Cocktail Lounge — Pending CB ApprovalDoes Alan Harding, the king of Carroll Gardens, have a new project up his sleeve? We hear talk of an “upscale cocktail lounge” on Hoyt Street near Union Street’s Black Mountain Wine House. A neighborhood foodie tells us that this new venture depends on the community board, which will vote on the liquor license tonight. Sure enough, right there on CB6’s land-use committee agenda tonight is “Discussion and formulation of recommendation on an on-premises liquor license application submitted to the State Liquor Authority on behalf of 415 Union Street Inc. at 303 Hoyt Street (Block 430, Lot 78) between Union/Sackett Streets.” Will Brooklyn Social or another neighborhood competitor try to protest?
