It seems Lewis Avenue may soon become Bed-Stuy’s “Restaurant Row.”
Patch has gotten a tip that is opening two more establishments along the Lewis Avenue corridor between McDonough and Decatur Streets!
The first establishment will occupy the old Bread-Stuy space, at 403 Lewis Ave., and will be called “Bar at Peaches.”
“It will be a true bar, as opposed to a restaurant that has a bar space,” said Kristen Amendola, general manager at Peaches. “People can access a full-bar menu and order certain items from Peaches’ kitchen.”
The space will have a television and will keep late hours for those who want to pop in after-hours or wile the night away after leaving the restaurant. Bar at Peaches will be opened Thursdays through Sundays initially, “just to see how it goes,” said Amendola, although she couldn’t give a launch date. “Right now, we’re just waiting on the liquor license. So that can mean as early as tomorrow or next year.”
The second establishment will occupy the old Brownstone Books and Lewis Art Gallery spaces at 407-411 Lewis Avenue. According to Amendola, it doesn’t yet have a name or a concept.
Concept or not, it’s nice to know that that particular stretch along Lewis Avenue will soon again spring back to life. And given Peaches’ track record with the restaurant, we can bet it will be worth the wait.
