bk-exposed-dean-stThe good press about Dean Street continues and we couldn’t be happier! On Thursday, Brooklyn Exposed published an excellent article about new chefs at Brooklyn restaurants, which included a section on Dean Street and our new Executive Chef Simon Glenn. Titled Out with the Old, in with the New Chef, it provides a nice overview of Chef Glenn and the tasty changes he has brought to our menu:

Chef Simon Glenn didn’t replace a chef per se when he came to Dean Street. The talented team of cooks was headed up by a kitchen manager and is now under his direction. Chef Glenn runs a very successful pop-up restaurant in Brooklyn called Tchoup Shop specializing in southern American regional cuisine. After renting him prep space in the Dean Street kitchen, co-owners John Longo and Rob Gelardi decided to bring Glenn onboard with the hopes of him making an impact on the Dean Street menu. “The results have been staggering,” says Longo. “We have been on Tasting Table’s Short List and recently added to The Scoop, sponsored by The New York Times.”

Chef Glenn has brought a little bit of the Big Easy to Brooklyn with New Orleans-inspired dishes like a Shrimp Po’Boy Sandwich, Cornmeal Crusted Catfish, Shrimp and Grits, and Brisket Duck Boudin Balls with Creole Mustard.

If you’re in the Prospect Heights neighborhood, come check out these amazing dishes for yourself. In addition to our new menu, Dean Street also has a full bar that offers a wide array of cocktails, beers on tap, and wine. Come in for a drink and a snack or a full meal. We’ll be happy to see you!

We are also currently running a promotion for those attending events at Barclays Center. Bring in your ticket stub and we’ll give you a free drink! Dean Street restaurant is conveniently located nearby Barclays Center, so next time you attend a concert or BK Nets game there, swing by before or after the game for some delicious food and drink.

dean-street-restaurant-dnainfoIf you didn’t catch it on Wednesday, we were happy to see Dean Street included in a great article published by DNAinfo about the best restaurants for solo dining in the city. Titled Top Restaurants for Dining Solo, the section on Dean Street has some nice compliments:

This bar and restaurant is rapidly becoming a go-to hot spot for brunch or after a game at the Barclay’s Center, but Dean Street is also becoming a neighborhood mainstay.

Split into two sections — a front bar and a rear dining area with an exposed kitchen, along with a rotating menu of Cajun-inspired dishes designed by Chef Simon Glenn, Dean Street is a great place to grab lunch or have dinner and a drink while chatting with a friendly bartender. Owner John Longo said he added WiFi to the restaurant to welcome people to use it as a workspace — with great food.

If you’re near Prospect Heights, come in for a visit. The restaurant has a full bar with a large selection of beer, cocktails, and wine. Our menu features deliciously authentic New Orleans flavored dishes from our Executive Chef Simon Glenn. Dean Street Brooklyn also has a daily happy hour from 4 to 8 pm everyday.

Dean Street is also a great spot to come before or after an event at Barclays center. The restaurant is conveniently nearby Barclays, but nicely removed from the immediate crowds, so come by for a snack and drink or a meal before or after the next time you go to Barclays. Bring your ticket stub from the night’s event and you’ll get a free drink!

We’re pleased to announce that Dean Street has been included in the Scoop, which is a new guide to local restaurants, bars, events, and experiences compiled by the staff of the New York Times.  An excerpt from the listing is below:

Dean Street has finally found its sweet spot, thanks mostly to the chef, Simon Glenn, and his killer New Orleans-style food. This unassuming neighborhood bar — complete with jukebox, TV and friendly, local crowd — now happens to be a pretty wonderful restaurant as well.

Come on down to Prospect Heights and check out the restaurant and bar out for yourself. We offer a large selection of beer and cocktails as well as delicious, New Orleans flavored menu by our Executive Chef Simon Glenn. Dean Street Brooklyn has a daily happy hour from 4 to 8 pm everyday.

Dean Street is located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, nearby Barclays Center, which makes it the perfect place to stop for a meal, drink, or snack before or after an event at Barclays.

Check out the article about Dean Street’s New Executive Chef Simon Glenn that appeared in Prospect Heights Patch. An excerpt is below:

Longstanding hits on the brunch menu, such as the Carolina Sunrise featuring a homemade buttermilk biscuit with pulled pork, eggs and a side of grits, will remain. But make room for grass-fed chicken-fried steak with red eye gravy, riffs on Eggs St. Charles, and Bananas Foster French Toast, to come.

“We have a lot more freedom to use stoves and fire,” says Glenn, expanding on the differences between what he will feature at Dean Street and what he has done at Tchoup Shop. “It’s nice to make dessert for a change.”

One testament to the powers of a full range is the house gumbo. Swimming with sausage, shredded chicken, okra, rice and slivers of green onion, it is the most elegant we’ve ever tasted—and the most authentic you’re likely to find this side of Orleans Parish.

Check out our new menu for yourself. We invite you to come down to Dean Street for a meal or a drink with a snack. If you’re headed to an event at the Barclay’s Center, Dean Street is only a 5 to 8 minute walk away and we also offer special promotions on the nights of Barclays events.

Dean Street is excited to introduce Chef Simon Glenn as our Executive Chef.  An excerpt of the press release is below:

Chef Simon Glenn, the force behind Brooklyn’s popular Tchoup Shop pop-up restaurant – working out of d.b.a. Williamsburg since 2009 – has just accepted the position of Executive Chef at Dean Street, the Prospect Heights neighborhood tavern just a few blocks from the new Barclays Center.

Glenn has been leasing space from the owners of Dean Street, Rob Gelardi (also owner of WXOU Radio Bar in the Village) and John Longo, to prepare his food for Tchoup Shop. Glenn has put his southern stamp on Dean Street’s menu, introducing his Shrimp Po’ Boy, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo and Cornmeal Crusted Catfish.

City Spoonful Review

April 1, 2012

“My first visit to Dean Street, a restaurant, bar, and live-music venue in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, made me want to apartment hunt around the corner and become a regular. There’s just something magical about the spot, which immediately had me planning my next meal there….” (Melanie Moss, City Spoonful)

Dean Street Brooklyn recently had a great review the Village Voice’s food section. While the article stopper short of saying that Dean Street was one of the best pubs or bars in Brooklyn and Prospect heights, it was very complementary. Some excerpts:

“A gastropub must provide an ass-grabbingly good burger. Here, Dean Street delivers magnificently. It comes with fries, but bacon and cheese are extra, for an all-in price of $15.”

“Also keeping the carbs low, a magnificent trout—boneless, splayed, and crisply cooked—lies supine on a mesa of collards speckled with cranberry beans, in the tiniest gesture of reconciliation with starches.”

“Desserts must be killer. In this regard, Dean Street excels, offering a light take on cheesecake. At first it came glossed with caramel, but then went the blueberry compote route, which substitutes sweet moisture for mere stickiness, and calls for a cocktail.”

Check out the full article on Dean Street on the Village Voice website or come on down to Prospect Heights and check out the restaurant and bar. Dean Street Brooklyn offers a great selection of food and drink for yourself. If you’d like a preview, you can have a look at our menu and beers on-tap.

Dean Street Brooklyn has a daily happy hour from 4 to 8 pm everyday – the perfect time to come into the bar for a few drinks and stay for dinner. Sunday through Thursday there is also a second happy hour for Prospect Heights late night.  Dean Street also features live music on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Dean Street is located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, adjacent to Park Slope and just a short ride on the C train from Manhattan.
