Brush Park’s belated vegan coney island Chili Mustard Onions startup is on track for a spring opening. Owner Pete LaCombe tells the Metro Times that construction delays at the restaurant — located at 3411 Brush St. — pushed back the buildout process, but the diner is now aiming for an April 1 debut.
On the menu expect to see all-vegan versions of classic dishes like coneys, gyros, wraps, spinach pie, and a meatless burger called the Big Mock. The restaurant will also offer craft beer, wine, and cocktails. LaCombe is making an effort to use primarily organic and non-GMO ingredients. While they might not beat traditional coney island prices, diners can expect the restaurant’s plant-based food to be easy on the wallet with dishes ranging from $5 to $13.
Chili Mustard Onions is filling the space that was briefly occupied by Le Petit Dejeuner back in 2015. That breakfast restaurant has since relocated to a new space on East Jefferson.
