Hill Country Barbecue is slated to open this fall at 345 Adams Street, alongside the Downtown Brooklyn border’s other recently opened eateries: Shake Shack, Potbelly and Panera Bread. Muss Development is converting the former government offices into new retail and condo space. According to developer Joshua L. Muss: “Adding a restaurant of this caliber to our retail tenants will elevate our property here and blend perfectly with the continued evolution of the entire neighborhood.”
The 10,000-square-foot Texas-themed BBQ restaurant will offer dry-rub style meats, an in-house meat-smoke room, beer-braised cowboy pinto beans and boneless prime rib, along with “American Roots” live country music most every night. It already has two locations in Manhattan and one in Washington, D.C.
The arrival of Hill Country is a change of course from BHB’s September 2012 report that the locale would house American BBQ and Beer Co., which was originally scheduled to open in April 2013.
In addition, we reported then of an alleged signed lease in the building for Sugar and Plumm, a combination restaurant, ice cream parlor & chocolate retailer.
