Industry City has a lot on its plate!

Sunset Park was once a fine dining desert, but a garden of eatin’ has bloomed in the massive shorefront complex. Whether you are looking to sink your teeth into the latest food trend or master your favorite fare with a cooking class, this foodie hub has you covered. Get a taste with our guide to the latest joints that have taken root, or will soon bloom in Industry City.

Wholly guacamole

Take your avocado obsession to the next level at Avocaderia. The all-avocado eatery, which made headlines world-wide when it opened in April, plates the creamy fruit on toast, in salads, and blended into smoothies. Each month also features new specials that imagine the green goody in a unique form. July’s creations include “Avo chocolate mousse” and an “Avo burger” that uses the fruit as a bun.

Avocaderia [238 36th St. between Second and Third avenues in Sunset Park, (347) 227–0350,]. Open Mon–Fri, 9 am–4 pm; Sat–Sun, 11 am–5 pm.

Light eating

The latest sit-down eatery in Industry City, Filament at the Landing, offers a high-brow twist on pub grub. Culinary craftsmen Vincent Chirico, who also runs two Mediterranean-inspired spots on the distant isle of Manhattan, has brought some of more well-known dishes to the better borough, including charred octopus served on a bed of jalapeno pesto, and a chicken-under-a-brick dish. In addition to bold bites, the space features a courtyard bar, pool tables, and shuffleboard.

Filament at the Landing (220 36th St. between Second and Third avenues in Sunset Park, (347) 417–8494). Open Mon–Tue, 9:30 am–8 pm, Wed–Fri, 9:30 am–10 pm, Sat, noon–10 pm, and Sun, noon–6 pm.

Booze cruise

Belly up to seasonal tug-boat-turned-eatery the Wheelhouse, now landlocked in an Industry City courtyard. The team behind the Manhattan-docked vessel Frying Pan are serving up a slew of nautical fare, including lobster rolls, ceviche tacos, and spiced shrimp banh mi, along with beer, wine, and cocktails. You can settle at any of the benches around the courtyard, or migrate mere steps to the Brooklyn-themed mini-golf course for a round.

The Wheelhouse at Industry City Courtyard 5/6 (enter on Second Avenue between 34th and 35th streets in Sunset Park, (347) 902–4829,]. Open Mon–Wed, noon–8 pm; Thu–Fri, noon–9 pm; Sat, noon–8 pm; Sun, noon–6 pm.

All that and dim sum

Downtown dumpling spot Yaso Tangbao will open its second location at Industry City later this month. The Shanghai-inspired shop will feature on-site seating for on-site eating of its delicious dumplings, which include blue crab and pork soup dumplings, sticky rice dumplings, and garden veggie dumplings. Noodles, soups, and other traditional delicacies are on the menu.

Opening soon at 253 36th St. between Second and Third avenues in Sunset Park in Industry City.

Foodies in training

The Brooklyn Kitchen has shifted its cooking class operation to Industry City after more than a decade in Williamsburg. Instead of selling produce and kitchenware, the Sunset Park spot focuses on classes and special events, with daily workshops that will help you hone your cooking craft. Classes offered this month include “Chinese Dinner Party,” “Halal Cart at Home,” and “Not Sad Desk Lunch.”

The Brooklyn Kitchen [254 36th St. between Second and Third avenues in Sunset Park, (718) 389–2982,]. Class times vary.
