Our Story

Dean Street is a neighborhood pub and kitchen. We feature craft beers from right here in Brooklyn and Queen, with occasional brews from across New York. Our menu is inspired by New Orleans and Southern-styles flavors with traditional favorites like great burgers, salads and daily specials.

Owner John Longo hails from Bayville, New York, on the north shore of Long Island. After graduating from Villanova University (Go ‘Cats!), he kicked off an 8-year bar and restaurant career with stops at New York institutions such as The Brooklyn Inn, Tile Bar and WXOU Radio. He took a decade-long detour into corporate sales, specializing in technology and corporate events, returning to his true passion, the bar business, in 2008. Dean Street was born in January 2011 and has been serving the community ever since.

John was lucky enough to marry his true love, Jenny, in 2002. His daughter (and future business partner) Sophia Love entered the world in 2006 and attends elementary school in Carroll Gardens.

We pride ourselves on our comfortable vibe, diverse crowd and great drinks and food. One of the things that makes Dean Street particularly special is how little our team turns over. Most of our staff have been with us for years.

We look forward to seeing you!
