Featured Space: Henry’s Bushwick Restaurant
What was once a party destination and an incubator for the arts is now a successful restaurant. The location’s previous inhabitant (a whimsical East Williamsburg/Bushwick artist collective) hosted classes in a multitude of crafts, connecting creatives from all over the New York area. Embodying this same collaborative spirit, Brooklyn restaurateur Henry Rich opened Fitzcarraldo. By tying historic neighborhoods together in a comfortable, relaxed culinary setting, Rich continues to provide individuals with a space where they can come together and share their own ideas and visions. It was really enjoyable to meet with Henry and discuss his space.

Fitzcarraldo provides diners with authentic Ligurian cuisine. Fine seafood, cheese, and meat are served in a beautiful, romantic setting that easily causes customers to forget that they are in an industrial neighborhood. The produce featured on the eatery’s menu is sourced locally, providing the freshest ingredients possible. The restaurant can easily transform into virtually anything to fit your needs. From a smaller meeting site to a stunning wedding venue, revel in Fitzcarraldo’s warm interior and delicious fare.
