Grocery Store that turns into a restaurant at night

Anybody know about this place in Brooklyn? I read about it in the NY Times but can't remember the name?

  1. Are you sure it wasn't referring to Sapori D'Ischia in Woodside???

      Or maybe you are thinking of Marlow & Sons in Wiliamsburg?

    2. Are you thinking of L'EPICERIE? 270 Vanderbilt (at DeKalb) 718-636-1200. They serve a family style dinner on Saturday nights only and get booked pretty quickly. We went in January and it was so-so. The food was decent, it is BYOB, it was a fun experience, but for $45 pre fixe we were a bit disappointed [good salad with pears and cheese (can't remember the details), braised short ribs that were tender but oddly devoid of flavor, mashed potatoes with a similar issue, and fondue that was basically a melted bittersweet chocolate bar with unripe winter fruit]. Even so, we plan to give it a second chance when the local produce gets going.
