Domino Sugar Factory Building Poised To Be Dining Destination In Williamsburg

Chef Missy Robbins, who made a huge splash opening her Italian spot Lilia in early 2016, is reportedly doubling down on Williamsburg with a second restaurant in the neighborhood, expected some time next year. The chef will be debuting her new restaurant at 325 Kent, one of the new Domino Sugar Factory buildings that recently opened its rental applications on the neighborhood's south side, according to the Post.

Very few details about the restaurant currently exist, save its slashy address and 4,000-square-feet of space. We've reached out to Lilia's co-ownership to see if they're involved with this new restaurant; we'll update when we get more details. Update: Lilia's ownership says they're not involved with the new restaurant.

In May, DNAinfo reported that Mekelburg's—the top-notch Clinton Hill restaurant serving some of the city's finest porchetta—would be a tenant, making the forthcoming building a dining destination of sorts.

The giant residential building by the East River—which looks like this—houses 522 apartments, 104 of which were offered by lottery to low and middle income families.
