The supermarket with a 'cult following' will open on Flushing Avenue in Brooklyn.
Among the "restaurant foods" is a sushi bar, offering 28 roll options, poke bowls, and custom rolls. There will also be a brick oven pizza station offering custom pies, a burger bar complete with lobster rolls, crab cake, and fried chicken sandwiches, and a salad bar. Much like other Wegmans locations, there will be a self-serve buffet and a coffee department.
One thing that makes the Brooklyn Wegmans particularly unique is the bar. Modeled after Wegmans Next Door Bar and Grill in Rochester, it will offer beers from local breweries including Threes Brewing, Grimm, and Interboro. There will also be a variety of spirits and kombucha on tap, making this new Brooklyn Wegmans your one-stop-shop for groceries, a meal, and a drink.
Wegmans knows ingredients are no joke, especially to parents. It sources from sustainable distributors and growers, according to De Lucia. Also, Wegmans will offer more than 4,000 organic products to shoppers in Brooklyn.
