'UpNorth' Debuts In Bushwick with Canadian Cuisine, Burgers

Burger fans, take heed: there's a new spot in town to get your fix. Located at 17 Wyckoff Ave. (between Jefferson St. & Troutman St.) in Bushwick, the fresh arrival is called UpNorth.

Inspired by the owners' Canadian roots, the bar touts several types of poutine and a diverse range of cocktails. Brothers Marcel and Harold Simoneau told the Bushwick Daily that they want to bring "a little taste of their hometown" of Quebec to New York.

On the menu, look for the "Classique" poutine, consisting of hand-cut potatoes, local cheese curds and gravy; a grass-fed beef burger draped in mushrooms and Gruyere; and a variety of chocolate snacks. There are 10 beers on tap and the cocktails change seasonally.

The new cocktail bar has already attracted fans thus far, with a five-star rating out of four reviews on Yelp.

Jean-Yves R., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on March 20th, said, "This is the best new bar in the hood! Love the black white contrast and all the subtle details...Amazing cocktails, food, service, space."

Yelper Jonathon C. added, “Brand new Canadian bar in Brooklyn serving higher-end spirits and terrific food. They did a great job with the interior of the place.”

Head on over to check it out: UpNorth is open weekdays from 4pm–4am, and weekends from 2pm–4am.
