Good News at Hinsch's!

The Brooklyn Paper reports that the recently closed Hinsch's will live on!  The lease has been taken over by Gerard Bell, owner of Fifth Avenue restaurant Skinflint's:

We’re shooting for Nov. 1,” he said. “We’re in here now cleaning and just patching up some holes and we’re ready to go.”
Bell, a lifelong Ridgite, said he wanted to keep the shop from becoming another chain store — a common fate over the years.
“We wanted to revive the place, said Bell. “It’s a part of Bay Ridge history.
The menu will feature a couple new items, but the famous chocolates, milk shakes and egg creams will stay the same — as will its iconic signage and old-school interior.
“Everything is staying. We’re just cleaning it up and making it look nice,” he said.

Happy news!
