We talk and think a lot about using or adapting interesting public spaces around town, and we always come back to the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO as one with the most potential. (Read more about our inner workings in this Q&A.)
After nearly a year of planning, we’re excited to announce that starting this Thursday, June 21, four of your Flea food faves will begin setting up for lunch and dinner under the historic (and cool) Archway. All summer long you’ll enjoy noshing on Asia Dog (Mel and Steve!), Brooklyn Oyster Party (po’ boys and raw bar!), Landhaus (pork meatballs, brats!), and Mile End (smoked meat!), every Thursday and Friday. (Tune in to Facebook and Twitter for daily specials, and special guests.) Big thanks to our pals at the DUMBO Improvement District for partnering with us to, selfishly, add more lunch options near Flea HQ. And with a little luck we’ll have some beer out there later this summer too.
Find Flea Food Under the Archway on Thursdays 11:30am-8pm, and Fridays 11:30am-4pm, through August. The Archway runs under the Manhattan Bridge between Anchorage Place and Adams Street.
