The Wolf & Lamb Steakhouse in Brooklyn, located in a 3-story structure on the intersection of Coney Island and Ave M in Flatbush, is the latest financial casualty of the coronavirus pandemic.
“After nearly a decade serving the Brooklyn Kosher community, we are sad to announce that due to issues related to the corona crisis, Wolf and Lamb is sad to be closing our Brooklyn location,” the owner Zalman Wuensch announced on Thursday.
“Serving you and your families and celebrating happy occasions together was our absolute pleasure,” wrote Wuensch, a resident of Crown Heights who opened the restaurant in 2012 and offered Lubavitch shechita meat.
He said that the flagship Wolf & Lamb in Midtown Manhattan is not going out of business. “(It) will reopen once the executive order has been lifted and we look forward to serving you there soon,” he said in a statement posted on the Facebook group “Great Kosher Restaurant Foodies.”
Established over 20 years ago, Wolf & Lamb in Manhattan has a well-earned reputation for fresh, delicious food, and warm, friendly ambiance. The Brooklyn location offered a menu that incorporated seasonally inspired dishes, produce sourced from local Farmer’s Markets, as well as herbs and greens from their rooftop garden.
Wuensch added: “G-d willing, once the crisis is behind us, we look forward to hopefully coming to Brooklyn.”
