Brooklyn Heights Blog has been following the story of Colonie for several months, which up till this point has been the progress in raising money through Kickstarter.com, a “crowdfunding website.”
Now Brownstoner is reporting that Colonie has “surpassed its fundraising goal” and is scheduled to open on December 1st.
The Colonie entrepreneurs had the space at 127 Atlantic already but were using Kickstarter to raise ten thousand dollars to obtain some remaining kitchen and dining items, such as a counter, stools, lamps, and most notably, “sexy kitchen appliances.”
No doubt they got a fair amount of money they wouldn’t have otherwise if they’d said simply “kitchen appliances.” These guys certainly know how to market themselves!
Set to open in “late November,” Colonie is going to focus on “local, seasonal American cuisine” and a “super approachable and affordable” wine list.
