Fort Defiance - General Store & Restaurant

Fort Defiance started life in 2009 as a restaurant.  During COVID it transitioned to a general store/ gourmet restaurant.  These days it is both, with a store on Van Brunt Street and bar/restaurant with an entrance on Wollcott Street.

Some history of the place:

In summer 2021, they moved to a new location, just a block north on Van Brunt, the former site of the Copper Pot and Hope & Anchor.  However, they are only running the gourmet grocery store as the NYS Liquor Authority is giving them a Kafkaesque runaround and denying them a permit, despite the fact that they only moved one block and there had been 12 other liquor permit renewals at this address.   

They offer:

"Organic produce, well-sourced fish and meat, fresh bread baked on premises, delicious prepared foods, rotisserie chicken, cold wine, beer, and cocktails, and more."

[Previously, Fort Defiance was located at 365 Van Brunt]
