Brooklyn Cafe Ends Nightly Transformation Into Wine Bar

Crossroads Cafe Brooklyn storefrontAn experimental business model that transformed a Brooklyn, N.Y., coffee shop into a wine bar during evening hours has ended after a little more than two months.

According to a New York Times report, Crossroads Cafe and Nanny Goat Hill have ended their partnership inside the Crossroads space.

“Due to irreconcilable differences between ourselves and our most gracious hosts Crossroads Cafe, we have both agreed to end our arrangement in order to pursue our separate goals,” wrote the team at Nanny Goat Hill team, according to the report.

Times blogger Ann Farmer says many residents of the Windsor Terrace are lamenting the breakup:

The owners of Crossroads and Nanny Goat Hill, had negotiated an arrangement to operate both establishments under the same roof at different hours. Around 4 p.m. five days a week, the Nanny Goat Hill owner, Jeremiah Fox, would arrive with his portable bar, his awning and even his own light bulbs and transform the space, at Prospect Avenue and Reeve Place, into a nighttime restaurant.

Residents of the neighborhood were initially baffled. Then delighted. Bagels and coffee in the a.m. Quinoa stuffed squid and pinot noir at night.
