Kif

There are finally signs of life in the restaurant space on Dekalb Avenue that was once home to the ill-fated Liquors. The space has been empty for more than two years since the previous tenant vacated under acrimonious terms. Now you can add organic French Moroccan cuisine to the choices available on the street that realtors like to call Fort Greene’s “restaurant row.” Kif is the name on display now and it’s got the same proprietors as Cafe Lafayette over on S Portland.
The message in the window is welcoming and the menu promising, but there’s no sign of what the prices will be (how much will they have to match the rent listed in this old craigslist ad?).

Price Comparison

A few people in the neighborhood (including the people who write this blog) are looking at forming a food co-op in Fort Greene.

Wednesday, January 23, 7-8:30 p.m.
The Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church, 85 South Oxford (btw Lafayette and Greene/Fulton)

Provisions Opens

Those of us who are not in a cabin the woods took a trip to Provisions to scope out the new place. As expected, there’s lots of fancy foodstuffs, like olive oil, dried apple snacks and fresh bread. But if you’re looking for anything that needs refrigeration, you’ll have to wait. The General Manager (the guy in the cap above) told General Greene that they were waiting for DOB approval to connect two pipes together. Once that happens there’ll be fish, meat and anything else that needs to be kept cold. Meanwhile, I walked away without the milk I wanted, but I did get some nice Ciabatta bread.

Provisions Opens

It’s weird to be writing this from a cabin in the woods, but as I was about to leave town yesterday, I noticed the Greene Grape’s Provisions store was opening. We left before the official 2 p.m. open time, so I haven’t had time yet to go in and look around. Anyone been? Feedback?
