Bar & Burger Opens a Bun’s Throw From Brooklyn Jail


Given that the Manhattan Detention Complex sits across the street from a bounty of Chinatown restaurants, it seems only fair that its Brooklyn counterpart should have a little dining variety of its own. Apparently the owners of Bar & Burger agree: As Chow reports, they’re opening their restaurant right across Atlantic Avenue from the Brooklyn Detention Complex. Located next door to H.P. Mavica Bail Bond, it’s supposed to open next month, right around the same time people will probably start referring to it as Bail & Burger.
