COLONIE will be a new restaurant/wine bar located in Brooklyn Heights. We can't wait to open, so look out for us this November!

Hi there! We are three food and wine loving Brooklynites starting our very first restaurant in Brooklyn Heights, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the borough. There are many great restaurants in Brooklyn right now, but Brooklyn Heights is an area that has been lacking for sometime.

We have an amazing chef who is focused on local, seasonal American cuisine with a definite bias to all things gastronomically Brooklyn, and our wine list will be unique yet super approachable and affordable. We have an incredible bright and airy space with high ceilings and lots of exposed brick, and we are looking to create an environment that is warm, comfortable and interesting. One of our design elements is to include an open kitchen with counter dining. To us, nothing is cooler than sitting at the kitchen while a chef prepares your meal right in front of you. Watching the art of cooking while you dine is like a new kind of theater and can be truly inspirational, changing the way you think about the food you eat.

We need a great counter top and bar stools, sexy kitchen appliances, beautiful pendant lamps, and cool tiles for the wall. We are funding this project ourselves with some support from friends and family, but would like to reach out to the community for a little more help. We are offering AWESOME and generous incentives in the hopes that we will be able to personally meet (and thank!) everyone who donates, and to begin fostering a great relationship with all of you.
