Much to the sadness of its loyal followers, Leo's Coney Island closed last September, but the corner space won't remain empty much longer. Crosby's Kitchen, the newest project from the 4-Star Restaurant Group (Dunlay's, Frasca Pizzeria, Smoke Daddy), is projected to open sometime this June.
The restaurant, named for 4-Star partner Derek Rettell's newborn daughter, Crosby, aims to be family friendly. Case in point: Crosby's will have a daily kids-eat-free program and a stroller valet to cater to the very family-heavy Southport Corridor neighborhood. The space is currently undergoing a full makeover and will have a new bar area and a sidewalk patio. Crosby's scratch menu for lunch, dinner and brunch will feature items like mini filet sandwiches, various salads, burgers, sandwiches and numerous omelets for brunch.
