Hey Hey Canteen’s Menu Is As Friendly As Its Name

Ready to take your lunch from al desko to al fresco? Do yourself a favor and head to Hey Hey Canteen at Gotham Market for a delicious lunch to bring outside into the sunshine. Started by Kay Ch’ien (formerly of 2 Duck Goose) and Carlos Barrera (her sous-chef there), Hey Hey Canteen slings crowd-pleasing Asian comfort food seven days a week. Their first location in Gowanus handles all of their catering, for which they are quietly famous. At Gotham Market, there are handmade dumplings with an array of mouthwatering fillings. There’s an otherworldly crispy chicken sandwich on a chewy yet pillow-y bao bun. There are hot, tangy, perfectly roasted brussels sprouts with Yuzu sauce. There is, in short, something for everyone, from your carnivore clients to your vegan, gluten-free colleague. There is even team-building dumpling-rolling, if you inquire within.

Bonus tip: When it’s too hot to be exposed to the elements, Gotham Market cranks that AC all day.

Bonus tip 2.0: But when the temp is just right, Fort Greene Park is only an 11-minute walk away.
