Update 1/18/2016 3:10pm: There is a partial stop work order on the new restaurant for unlicensed electrical work. Propellerhead’s designer Brittany Echlin says they were unaware their electrician had not filed all of the permits required. “We were under the impression everything was being done legally and above board,” says Brittany. They are working to remedy the situation as quickly as possible.
Spotted Friday: Propellerhead, a new restaurant and bar opening at 752 Coney Island Avenue replacing the former Visions Bar, was seen installing their new sign and awning, signaling that opening day is coming soon (a bit later than expected, but still on the way).
The new restaurant, owned by Paul-Gabriel Wiener, will be offering a full American-fare menu and a full bar after hours — serving both the daytime culinary and nightlife audiences in the neighborhood.
The space looks gorgeous; a full-size bar stretches across the room, with sunlight-filled table area by the window and more seating in the back. The menu is currently being developed and refined, but already includes a creative dish called Purple Yam Gnocchi.
Brittany Echlin, the in-house designer, says she’s very proud of the work they’ve done so far and is looking forward to opening day. Stay tuned for more on the menu and opening dates.
