This new raw bar grill inside the Empire Stores building makes a visit to Dumbo well worth it.

The 11,000sq ft site is Sugarcane’s third outpost after Miami and Las Vegas and its first in New York, located in between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. The restaurant is best known for its “globally-inspired small plates”, which come from three kitchen concepts – an open fire grill, raw bar, and a traditional kitchen.  

James Beard-nominated executive chef Timon Balloo has created a menu of small plates designed to share inspired by cuisines from Asia and Latin Maerica. Dishes range from ceviche to duck and waffle and specialty sushi rolls.

Sugarcane is a big, vibrant place with 300 seats inside and outside the Empire Stores complex and rum-focused cocktails add a nice bit of fun.
