People's Pops Shuts Down for the Season, Landhaus Moving In

The Soup Bowl will be re-opening within a couple weeks, People's Pops has closed up shop... I guess that means that summer is officially over.

The small storefront, on Union Street just east of Seventh Avenue, opened back in May. It was the first brick-and-mortar storefront for the cult favorite ice pop shop, which launched in 2008 and developed quite a following at local markets with flavors like Rhubarb-Mint, Raspberry-Ginger, and Red Plum-Sour Cherry.

But it won't be empty all winter. People's Pops owner David Carrell told me that The Landhaus, a popular "farm to sandwich" cart at the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg, will be opening up in the space on November 1st, and will hold down the fort until People's Pops returns in the spring.

"It was always our intention to share the space with our friends," said Carrell.

I had a chat with Landhaus' owner, Torrisi alum Matthew Lief, who's excited about finally having a storefront to call his own.

"We've been looking for a while to open in Park Slope, and this is definitely a unique opportunity to test the waters in a seasonal capacity," said Lief, who launched Landhaus two years ago with partner Jakob Cirell. "It works out for both of us."

Landhaus is perhaps best known for its award-winning grilled bacon on a stick (yes please), and the shop will sell that along with an assortment of drool-worthy sandwiches like grass-fed beef short rib with sharp cheddar cheese sauce and pickled hot peppers, and Heritage pork meatballs with wild arugula and Pecorino cheese.

"We've all become close at the Flea, and we do what it takes to support each other," said Lief. "It's a really unique time for small businesses in Brooklyn. Things are really exploding. And if this works out there's no reason why we won't do it again next year."

Best news on here in a while. Landhaus is amazing. Those bacon on a stick are like the best things ever created.

Hope they stay open late! It's a shame that building is covered with scaffolding right now, hope people will find them.

Is it just me, or does "farm to sandwich" sound a bit unhygienic?

I actually saw those bacon-on-a-stick things at Smorgasburg. It was like a siren luring me in. I was able to walk away before it shipwrecked (or should it be shitwrecked) my stomach.

Are Landhaus and Coolhaus related?
