The Rookery opened quietly a couple of weeks ago (last week, Bushwick Daily spoke to Jamie Schmitz, who, along with his wife Shana Bellot, built the handsome British-West Indian gastropub in a former warehouse on Troutman Street). But it’s only now celebrating it’s grand opening, and it’s doing so in style. By “in style” we, of course, mean with free food: Bellot tells B+B that starting at 4 p.m. on Saturday they’ll be offering complimentary sweet-and-spicy chicken wings (a new menu item) along with drink specials: $4 rum punch, $4 well drinks, and $1 off all cans and bottles. Plus, North Brooklyn dub legend Dr. Israel will be preforming in the front yard and then spinning all night.
