Court Street Grocers owners Eric Finkelstein and Matt Ross have built a business out of digging deep into Americana, stocking the shelves of their Carroll Gardens original with a collector’s haul of regional comestibles and serving over-the-top sandwiches inspired by American classics. The shop is their third brick-and-mortar in five years, and their fifth location (stalls and kiosks defunct or otherwise, included) overall, and has been opened with Fanelli’s owner and Court Street regular Sasha Noe, who also owns this building and lives next door. The spirit of the place is the same, but there are some firsts: a beer-and-wine license, which will allow them to do dinner service with blue-plate specials; a seltzer tap, soon to be used for egg creams; and espresso, which they’re working on with Counter Culture. As for food, fans can expect classics like the Mr. Victor and Uncle Chucky along with some new sandwiches like the 6th Avenue, with roast beef and chicken liver, and a vegetarian spin on the Italian combo. The comfortable, sunny space itself is anchored by a wide, diner-style counter, which flanks the kitchen and seats 11, giving it the luncheonette feel that Finkelstein and Ross always wanted. Produce, beer, and cider and various groceries are stocked on shelves upstairs, but there’s an additional space downstairs (not yet open), part of which will be used for groceries and another part for storage, giving them the wiggle room to work with more New York vendors than ever before.
