Profile

Aaron Foster is almost apologetic about opening a gourmet grocery in Brooklyn. Kings County, after all, is to newfangled general stores as Tokyo is to ramen-yas and Naples is to pizza joints. In other words, there is no shortage. But Foster Sundry is the fulfillment of a decadelong dream for the veteran of Murray’s Cheese and Brooklyn Kitchen, and he believes he’s found the perfect corner of the borough in which to set up shop: Bushwick. A neighborhood, he says, that’s full of fellow food lovers, but where’s there no place for sustainably sourced meat and specialty grocery items. His store supplies these weary grocery schleppers with all the necessities of 21st-century culinary life: grass-fed meat from Slope Farms in the Catskills, bean-to-bar chocolates, BjornQorn’s sun-popped vegan popcorn, Martin’s potato rolls, and She Wolf Bakery bread. Of course, you can’t open a gourmet grocery in Brooklyn these days without offering your customers a little pick-me-up. So there's also a sandwich menu that capitalizes on the talents of the shop’s Meat Hook and Marlow & Daughters-trained butchers. Many of the meats are smoked, corned, or cured on premises, like the chicken and bacon in the club, the beef in the Reuben, and the ham and mortadella in the Italian hero. Those sandwiches can be supplemented with Parlor coffee and local pastries, all of which can be scarfed down at the counter up front.
