Palena Cafe Adds On

Taking over Magruder's grocery store next door, Palena's adding 70 cafe seats, a pastry/bread bakery, and two new kitchens (with a wood-fired oven & grill) cranking out new eats like Rabbit & Ricotta Ravioli with roasted sweet potatoes/shaved reggiano, and House Corned Veal with polenta/wood roasted vegetables. They've also added a new bar drafting Lagunitas IPA, Stone Smoked Porter, Duchesse Bourgogne, and Brooklyner Weisse, which unlike a Crooklyner Weisse, you're not encouraged to pair with a Spike Lee joint.
