One by one, new restaurants are opening or getting ready to open in Red Hook, making Gothamist's prediction of a new restaurant row look more and more real.
The first of the group to open was Anselmo's, which we haven't had a chance to try yet but have heard good things (test oven night was packed when we walked by!)
Now, according to Eater, Fort Defiance is getting ready to open its doors in May, serving coffee and lunch at first and moving on to include cocktails and light food at night as well.
Fort Defiance will be located at the corner of Dikeman and Van Brunt, and is being run by St. John Frizell of Pegu Club
