Downtown Brooklyn is a TECH HUB, A college town,
a shopping mall, and a government center
rolled into one dense, vibrant neighborhood.
Gage & Tollner is located at 372 Fulton, in the middle of Downtown Brooklyn.
Fulton Street runs from Borough Hall —the center of Brooklyn's government — eight blocks to Flatbush Avenue and the Brooklyn Academy of Music — the center of Brooklyn's cultural life. It's where New York City's best developers are placing heavy bets on massive new projects.
It's a neighborhood that's been busy since before Brooklyn was a borough.
Since Gage & Tollner closed in 2004, Downtown Brooklyn has "emerged from two decades of unprecedented growth as a paragon of successful urban development" —and it's still growing, unbelievably fast. Yet there are very few restaurants to serve its rapidly expanding resident and working population, besides fast-food and fast-casual outlets, like Shake Shack, Hill Country, Rocco’s Tacos, and newcomer The Wei. No full-service restaurants (besides Ganso Ramen, a Japanese noodle joint) have distinguished themselves, and there are no private dining rooms in the neighborhood, forcing a surging population of thousands of professionals to look elsewhere for dinner, drinks, and places to celebrate.
Residential and office towers are sprouting up all over Downtown Brooklyn, blocks away from Gage & Tollner — huge developments like Extell's Brooklyn Point and JDS Development's 9 Dekalb, Brooklyn's first "supertall."

The Fulton Mall is one of NYC's densest transit hubs, second only to Times Square. The area is served by 19 train lines and many buses, and it's on the way home for most of the 390,000 Brooklynites who work in Manhattan. The train from Borough Hall to Manhattan's Chambers St. takes 11 minutes.
