The symbol of Brooklyn’s restaurant week will come from one of our own — a Pratt grad!
Pratt Institute alum and current Park Slope resident Jeffery Rosenkrantz won a contest to design a new logo for Dine In Brooklyn, a celebration of the borough’s renowned food culture that will take place from August 11 to August 22, announced Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.
“I wanted a logo to feature an image that unites our community, the Brooklyn Bridge, and that reflects the many cultures that are here,” said Rosenkrantz, who took home $1,000 for the designing the winning emblem.
Pratt grads have been making headlines lately with their design expertise. Sartorial trendsetter Rihanna recently won acclaim when she donned an 2016 grad’s sparkling, subversive garb for a music video.
Clinton Hill has recently received rave reviews for its culinary prowess, including a bevy of distinctions from Michelin. More importantly, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill recently claimed first place in the Brownstone Belt Pizza Smackdown.
We think restaurant week is a great time to take someone on a date in the neighborhood.
Participating restaurants will be offering pre-fixe menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and they’ll be identifiable by a special decal in their windows.
Dine In Brooklyn is being held in partnership with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, and it’s co-supported by Brokelyn, the Brooklyn Reporter, and Yelp, with an additional exclusive partnership from Visa.
