Fort Greene gained another delicious food spot this week with the opening of a new prepared food shop just off of Myrtle Avenue near Fort Greene Park. The team behind Marius & Co. celebrated a ribbon cutting this Friday at 154 Carlton, between Myrtle and Willoughby Avenues.
The shop, which ran a soft-opening over the past week, will specialize in delicious and affordable prepared foods. From comfort classics like mac and cheese and chicken tenders to salads and rice dishes that showcase the head chef’s New Zealand roots. The shop’s specialty is the use of Captain Smolder’s New Zealand-style smoked salmon, which is packed with flavor. Continue to stop back over the coming weeks as new products and menu items are added, including morning coffee service.
The shop’s trio of owners includes head chef James, along with husband-and-wife duo Mitro and Kimberly. And it is Mitro’s father who provides the inspiration for the shop’s name. His father, Marius, immigrated to the U.S. from Greece in the 1960s, settling in Fort Greene, where he raised his family. It only seemed natural for Mitro to open his business here in his home-neighborhood and to choose his father – a local resident of 50 years – as the shop’s namesake.
