Harlem’s Marcus Samuelsson Eats Brooklyn

June 27, 2017

Harlemite and Super chef Marcus Samuelsson conquered Harlem’s dining scene with his celebrated Red Rooster. Now he’s taking his game-changing restaurant show to Brooklyn for the first time.

His Marcus Samuelsson Group has signed a lease to open an eatery of more than 4,000 square feet at The Greenpoint, the nearly completed luxury residential complex rising on the East River waterfront.

No name has been chosen yet. Samuelsson’s new fun house will sit at the base of the project at 21 India St. It’s being developed by Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises, in conjunction with Urban Development Partners. The restaurant is to include an alfresco dining terrace overlooking the river with a spectacular Manhattan view.

The Greenpoint is a centerpiece of the development boom that’s sweeping the Greenpoint waterfront. It will include a 40-story waterfront tower with condo and rental apartments, a five-story rental building, a residents’ courtyard, and 30,000 square feet of amenities. Condo units are to go on sale this week.

Samuelsson wouldn’t say what kind of restaurant he’ll have. But he told us, “Brooklyn has an incredibly rich, dynamic food scene that I personally love and discover a little bit more every time I’m there.”
