From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: What’s Up At Calyer?


A person we’ll call “K” writes:

Hi Miss Heather,

Can’t find out from anyplace on-line- CALYER our fave eatery is gone, replaced by some hipster bar-b-q place- it happened in a matter of a few weeks! No signs, no warnings (that we heard) –

We can stop by Anella’s (same owners I believe) and ask about it, but thought just maybe you might have heard something…

Hope at least they have merely moved, not ceased operations… (though I guess they will never be called “CALYER”).

What a loss. The place not only had amazing food, it felt-and-looked cool inside. Don’t get it, thought they were doing well.

By all appearances it would appear Jimmy’s Diner has opened a second location. To my knowledge this is the second such restaurant the owners have divested of in the last six months or so. The other being of course being Bellwether. Hmm…

Jimmy’ Diner
Status: Open
92 Calyer Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

P.S.: While we are on the subject of Greenpoint eateries, it would appear Papasito’s has changed hands as well. This would explain a number of things including:

  • Why only cash is being accepted presently.
  • The lack of noise on Cinco De Mayo.


  • A noticeable change/shift in clientele.
