About Brooklyn Fare

Founded in 2009 in Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn fare is the vision of Moe Issa, who was raised in the neighborhood and realized that there was a need for a quality grocer after driving a Pepsi truck route in the 1980’s and 90’s. With his commitment to bringing an outstanding selection at affordable prices to the community, Moe opened his first store at the corner of Schermerhorn and Hoyt Streets. In addition to groceries, the Brooklyn store also housed the celebrated tasting menu restaurant, Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, which became borough’s only Michelin three-star restaurant before it relocated to Manhattan in 2016. 

Family owned and operated, Brooklyn Fare merges Moe’s vision of providing high quality foods with familiar products in a convenient and approachable shopping experience. The concept took hold, and he successfully opened his first Manhattan location at 431 West 37th Street in the Hudson Yards neighborhood followed by a second at 666 Greenwich Village in the historic Archive Building. The newest location at 75 West End is Brooklyn Fare’s first store on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. For more information, please visit
