Have you heard about Dekalb Market Hall in City Point Market? It's a 26,000 square-foot food hall in Brooklyn that's expected to open this fall.
With vendors like Alamo Drafthouse, Katz's Delicatessen, Fletcher's Barbecue, Bun-ker, and Ample Hills, this food hall is going to change the game for Brooklyn foodies, especially with the announcement that Westchester Italian restaurant, Fortina, has signed on.
Unlike most vendors (who will simply have stalls), Fortina will be opening a 130-seat sit-down restaurant that will be its own space apart from the main market.

Fortina currently has restaurants in Westchester and in Stamford, Connecticut, making their Brooklyn outpost the first in NYC.
This wood-fired restaurant quickly became a Westchester favorite after debuting three years ago, offering pizza, traditional Italian pasta dishes, and other wood-fired dishes like a wood-roasted half chicken.
Christian Petroni, chef and co-owner, told Eater, "[we] think the concept fits really well in the market... We're so excited to have these great neighbors. If you want to sit down, you can come in and eat with us."
Though the restaurant will be separate from the market, it is currently the only sit-down service style restaurant to be announced.
It is slated to open this fall, along with the rest of the City Point Market. Can't. Wait. We literally... can't even RN.[via Eater] [Feature Image Courtesy Instagram]
