Coming on Flatbush: restaurant seeks liquor license next to Shake Shack; sneaker shop Kith rebooting with cereal bar

Nike store in process, via the Real Deal
The retail space between Shake Shack and True Religion Jeans on Flatbush Avenue opposite the Barclays Center, most recently a Nike pop-up shop, is set to become a restaurant, which seeks a liquor, wine, and beer license.

At tonight's meeting of the Community Board 6 Environmental Protection/ Permits & Licenses Committee, held at 6:30 at Cobble Hill Community Room, 250 Baltic Street, the agenda includes:
Presentation and review of a new on-premises liquor license application submitted to the State Liquor Authority on behalf of JP Concepts, LLC at 166 Flatbush Avenue (between Pacific Street/5th Avenue).
The rather spare license application does not indicate the name of the restaurant, but says there will be recorded music, not live music, and an active rooftop space. The applicant is Pete Levin of JP Concepts, who also runs Professor Thom's in the East Village.

The 3,700-foot building, on the market recently for a stratospheric $250/square foot, was once supposed to be the home to the relocated Junior's restaurant, the Real Deal reported. It is among the many properties owned by the Pintchik family.

Sneaker store reboots, adds cereal bar

Via Google Maps; Atrium now closed
So the high-end sneaker store Kith at 233 Flatbush Avenue between Bergen and Dean streets, formerly Atrium + Kith, has seen Atrium (clothing store) close, and the store is rebooting. Complex reported:
Kith's Brooklyn location, the brand's original storefront, has been closed in recent times to undergo renovations. Ronnie Fieg, Kith's founder, has announced that the shop will open up at the end of the month, with a date set at August 24... Beyond that, Fieg also said that there will be a Kith Treats grand opening at the store's 233 Flatbush Ave. location.
Maybe the grand opening is tomorrow, though. TimeOut New York reported 8/13/15:
Trendy sneaker shop KITH NYC is opening its second location on August 25, right near Barclay's (233 Flatbush Ave). But this time, the store will sell much more than shoes and apparel. Soon, in addition to your fashion needs, you can also satisfy that craving for sweet, crunchy breakfast-y goodness.
At the cereal bar, called KITH EATS, customers can grab up to three servings per order, complete with specialty milk and toppings. With two-dozen cereal options, 30 different toppings and 10 types of milk at the self-serve counter, the combinations—and sugar highs—are endless.
