Brooklyn Fare Kitchen & Market confirmed it will be replacing Western Beef at 75 West End Avenue between 62nd and 63rd Street, and the company said it plans to open this summer. Western Beef closed in early January.
Assembly member Linda Rosenthal had said earlier this month that she was concerned Brooklyn Fare’s prices will be too high for Western Beef’s customer base, which includes people who live in the nearby Amsterdam Houses. The market mentioned the affordability of its food in a press release and that it accepts food benefit programs like SNAP.
“We are committed to providing our customers with the highest standards of products while maintaining affordability and convenience and also doing our part in helping the surrounding community and families thrive,” said Moe Issa, CEO of Brooklyn Fare.
The old Western Beef spot will be completely refurbished. Prior to the opening, Brooklyn Fare committed to delivering food to people living within 10 blocks of the new store by sourcing food from its Hell’s Kitchen location. People can order on BrooklynFare.com or by calling the store at 212-216-9700.
Brooklyn Fare has two other Manhattan locations and one in Brooklyn.
