Brooklyn Heights Gristedes to Go Upscale With Coffee Counter

Insiders say that the Gristedes supermarket in Brooklyn Heights -- undergoing a total redo (see above) since it was destroyed in a fire last April -- will include a coffee counter, along with other upscale amenities.

The coffee counter will be in the front of the store near the windows facing north.

Insurance delays have held up the store's reconstruction, sources say, but things are starting to move along now.

The store had hoped to open by the end of September/ early October, but there's no word on whether that time frame still stands.
