Sounds great - thanks for the tip!
Ilene Rosen, who left City Bakery last summer after 15 years of overseeing the savory dishes, and Sara Dima, who managed the bakery there, are opening 606 R&D, a small homestyle restaurant and bar.
“It will also have a mini-market, as much as we could find the space for, to sell breads, cheeses, cured meats and a few things we make here,” Ms. Rosen said. The restaurant, with about 30 seats at sleek white tables set with linen napkins, will eventually be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“I have two design degrees from Parsons so doing this was pretty exciting for me,” Ms. Rosen said. Seasonal, local ingredients are the mantra in new American and retro fare, including celery with chopped liver, carrot-parsnip pancakes, steamed littleneck clams, turkey meatloaf and rotisserie chicken with watercress and lemon. Fresh cake doughnuts will be available throughout the day. In the beginning, the restaurant will be open Wednesday through Sunday, starting this Saturday.
606 R&D, 606 Vanderbilt Avenue (Prospect Place), Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, (718) 230-0125.
