Five years after launching the successful restaurant/pub Alchemy on Fifth Avenue in the North Slope, owners Georgia and Kevin Read are opening up a second restaurant, further south.
Called Hamilton's, it'll be located at 2826 Fort Hamilton Parkway (on the corner of E4th Street), near the opposite end of Green-Wood Cemetery on the Windsor Terrace/Kensington border. It's the space last occupied by a cafe called The Oak & The Iris. Georgia told me that while the general setup and atmosphere will be very similar to that of Alchemy, the decor and menu will be entirely different. 18 beers as well as two wines will be on tap (tap wine seems to be the big trend this year), and chef Joseph Bayley, formerly of Littleneck and Boqueria, is creating "a small, approachable, internationally inspired American menu." There's also a spacious outdoor seating area out front.
If all goes to plan, they will be opening at some point next week.
