​A (black) tree grows in Brooklyn.

Yep, the popular Orchard Street sandwich shop just expanded its business into the outer boroughs. Ownership has been eyeing a second location for over a year, having briefly considered both a move into the adjacent storefront as well as a second counter across the street (122 Orchard). Neither of those plans ever came to fruition, obviously. (East Coast MMA and OAK Labs opened in the respective spaces.)

The new Black Tree Brooklyn is 1,600 square-feet will open September 30 at 261 Metropolitan Avenue. It’ll mirror operations of the Orchard OG, but also include an eight-person chef’s table and tasting menu. Dining room seats eighty.

Born in Crown Heights as a pop-up, the farm-to-table joint debuted its first brick-and-mortar at 131 Orchard Street in May 2013. The concept “takes New American cuisine and twists it into Urban American dishes.”

The sandwicherie has been newsworthy of late, having made headlines a few months ago for its mouse infestation and subsequent shutter by the Department of Health.
