Last week, we wrote that two Red Hook establishments next door to each other on Van Brunt Street—LeNell’s and small plates restaurant Tini—are both closing. In light of the news that the mother of all shopping malls is probably coming to the old Revere Sugar Refinery Dome site, it would seem that the waterfront neighborhood is definitely in a transition phase, one that goes something like this: independently owned shops and restaurants are losing the battle against massive, commercial real estate development plans.

However, there are currently at least five interesting restaurant projects in development over ten blocks worth of Van Brunt Street, not to mention the second coming of Tini: owners Leisah Swenson and Monica Byrne have decided to convert their antique and curio shop Home/Made down the street into a restaurant as well. They’ve been using the prep kitchen at the back of the store for catering purposes for a while now, anyhow.

So that makes six. Here are the new restaurants that will join Van Brunt stalwarts Baked, The Good Fork, and Hope & Anchor later this year. Click on each image for the scoop.
