A Green Wall Grows in Brooklyn: Colonie Restaurant

May 22, 2012

A trio of restaurateurs colonizes a strip of Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn Heights; the crowds are coming in droves.

Founders Elise Rosenberg, Emelie Kihlstrom and Tamer Hamawi, who opened Colonie in February, raised money from a Kickstarter campaign to get the restaurant off the ground; they worked with architect Alex Meyers of MADesign, who used reclaimed materials throughout the interior (banquettes are made from repurposed church pews). For more information, go to Colonie.
