The restaurant spot at 4319 Montrose Blvd. just south of Richmond Ave (at left in the photo above) that until mid-February was home to Thai Sticks — and was earlier the longtime home of Monica Pope’s Boulevard Bistro — will soon be home to an unidentified new restaurant run in part by Dan and Mark Zimmerman. Four years ago, the Zimmermans turned the restaurant at their parents’ La Colombe d’Or into Restaurant Cinq; they later opened and closed Zimm’s Little Deck in the 610 Richmond spot also owned by their parents (that spot is now home to the Brooklyn Athletic Club).
The younger Zimmermans also have plans for Zimms Martini and Wine Bar on the corner lot next door at 4321 Montrose (at right in the photos), which for the last 17 years has been run by their mother Becky. “They have decided to move away from a martini-driven menu and focus more on whiskies, hand-crafted cocktails and distinctive beer selections,” reads a press release announcing the changes. Zimms will remain open during renovations; the resulting neighborhood bar promises to have a “sleek, new look” when it’s done.
