Mekelburg’s Opens an Outpost in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Posted August 27, 2018 6:42 p.m. EDT

NEW YORK — Mekelburg’s, a grocery, bar and restaurant that opened in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, three years ago, is growing. In a larger space in Williamsburg, shelves will still be crammed with crackers and tinned seafood, and counters will dispense fine meats and cheeses. But the bar is double the size of the original. The new location, across from Domino Park, will be equipped with a gas-fueled kitchen, to enable it to turn out what Alicia Mekelburg calls “bigger food” like whole porchetta. They are also installing an espresso bar, with a window overlooking the street.
