After working as a set designer in L.A., Sosie Hublitz moved home to Virginia, where she opened, built, or ran half a dozen restaurants. Her last, the year-old Kitchen Table, was wiped out in 2004 by Hurricane Gaston. Since relocated to Cobble Hill, she’s teamed with the owners of Building on Bond (who also operate design firm Hecho Inc.) on Watty & Meg, taking over the space previously occupied by Caffe Carciofo. The restaurant takes its name from the original bartender (Watty) and his girlfriend (Meg), and its salvaged furnishings from the greater metropolitan area: bookshelves from Astoria, church pews from Harlem, tiles from City Hall. The American menu is thoroughly eclectic, nodding to the South with pulled pork barbeque and to Hublitz’s yoga-teacher sideline with a quinoa, kale, and avocado salad.
