Restaurant formerly known as Brooklyn’s reopening early 2017on
New investors were added to the ownership group in August of 2016 at Brooklyn’s restaurant, 701 S Main in Stillwater. The restaurant originally opened in 2011 in the building formerly home to Katz Department Store. After five months of assessing the restaurant the decision to renovate and rebrand has taken place.
Interior and exterior renovations are underway, and a date for re-opening will be announced soon with a new menu but Chicken and Waffles and Shrimp and Grits will remain.
“Our excitement is building, and we think the community is going to be pleased with the changes that are being made,” said Josh Sanders, CEO of Stillwater-based Keystone Foodservices and a principal in the restaurant’s new ownership group. “We’re looking forward to reopening in early 2017. We live in this community, so we’ve been talking and listening to our neighbors and gathering feedback since August to make this restaurant a really special place that Stillwater will love.”
Sanders said the restaurant’s opening date is not yet set but the new name will be Town Hall. “Town Hall’s across the nation are public places that people meet to exchange ideas, ask questions and voice their opinions. We want to create that atmosphere with approachable food and drinks at an affordable price.”
Keystone Foodservice is a family-owned company that provides food service for more than 80 school districts in Oklahoma. However, the family’s business roots actually began in the restaurant business, once owning Click’s Steakhouse in Pawnee, Oklahoma.
“We are in entering the last phase of our menu planning and making final decisions on decor. We are thankful of the community for the support of the restaurant in the past, and we look forward to serving the community in Stillwater for years to come.”
Sanders told the News Press that Town Hall will honor Brooklyn's gift cards.
