There was a "sneak peek" on Tuesday night at Brooklyn and the Butcher (148 E. Market in downtown New Albany).
Brooklyn what? If you haven't heard, here are sources of knowledge.

The photographs above (cocktail menu and butcher's board) appeared on The Exchange's twitter feed. Below are some of my quick snaps, revealing a radical change from the ones published here in December.
First, views of the subterranean lounge beneath the bar.
Last night's "soft opening" preview menu, and our Korean BBQ (pork ribs, kimchee and apricot-basil dipping sauce).
In interesting juxtaposition: Way back when New Albany Inn signage, and the updated version.
Front dining area facing the corner of Market and Bank.
Rear dining area by the kitchen.
Last but first: As you enter the establishment from Market Street.
Valentine's Day is the official opening, and it is booked solid. Next week, regular hours begin. Get the lowdown at Brooklyn and the Butcher's Fb page.
