Fort Greene’s Smoke Joint is up to some top-secret expanding. They have clearly taken over the space next door to them, and now claim the corner of Fulton and South Elliot.
EfV did a little nosing around this afternoon, which mostly consisted of bothering the manager, Chris, while he tried to talk on his phone. Chris swears the higher-ups won’t even tell him what the plan is for the space, and he’s relieved, because he doesn’t want to “be a liar” when he refuses to tell nosy girls what the deal is.
We did peak inside when a worker went in, and we will say this, reserving the right to be completely wrong of course: the added-on space does not look like simply additional seating. From what we glimpsed — and there is still lots of work to be done — the new area seems self-contained and not open to the existing dining room. We also saw three or four deli slicers in there.
Any theories out there?
