A new restraurant will soon open on the corner of St. John's and Classon Ave, and is owned by the same guy who owns Amorina on Vanderbilt.
We have been talking about it for months here, on a thread about what was formerly in the location: http://brooklynian.com/forum/crown-heights-and-prospect-lefferts-gardens/is-abigails-kaput
But now that it is getting close to opening, I have decided to give it its own thread, and summarize the old one: The Classon will feature blues music, a full Liq lic and table service level food.
The owner launched a Facebook page today:
Facebook for The Classon
Disclosure: This man has supplied Brooklynian's annual Festivus event with free pizza from Amorina for two years in a row. Such tactics are effective in creating a favorable opinion.
