The new site of Bison & Bourbon

UPDATE: Slated to open June 1st, 2016.

The very Jewish neighborhood of Gowanus, Brooklyn </sarcasm> is getting its very own kosher restaurant in the near future, billing itself as Brooklyn’s latest and most gorgeous Kosher joint. The restaurant, Bison & Bourbon, is set to open in May of this year in a space formerly operated as The Bahche.

It appears that the restaurant is taking the approach of restaurants such as Pardes & Chagall Bistro, both opening in traditionally non-Orthodox neighborhoods. If they offer a great experience, people will drive in for it.

The restaurant can seat 200 people inside on 2 levels, with the upper level able to accommodate private events, family gatherings, and Sheva Brachot. B&B’s seating outdoors can accommodate up to 100 people.

Located down the street from The Bell House, a bar and concert venue bringing indie acts to a redecorated 1920s warehouse space should provide more reason for people to venture out to the Gowanus for the evening.

Bison & Bourbon will be Glatt Kosher under the OK supervision. Location is posted in the map below.


Expect more information to be posted here in the coming weeks.

    Are they going to carry bison? That’s a rarity. I recall having Bison Ribs (“The Foundation” – “we promise you won’t be able to finish the plate”) at a restaurant in Skokie (now closed) many years ago – it was connected to Ken’s Diner but I forget the fine-dining restaurant’s name. And Abigael’s in Manhattan had Bison Chili [as well as Venison Stew] but there wasn’t enough bison in it to really get a sense of the meat. I’ve heard that Chicago-area kosher stores sell bison burgers.

    Or is this just a cute name for the restaurant?
