Williamsburg gets a surfer-centric juice bar

Inside Williamsburg’s new juice bar and cafe, Summers, it feels more like Montauk than Brooklyn.

The South 4th Street shop opened last week with a menu of cold-pressed and made-to-order juices, veggie sandwiches and salads, and a surfer vibe and aesthetic, thanks to the shared passion of founders Christoper Taha and Alex Kleinberg.

Brooklyn green juice“This past winter we did a two-week surf trip down to Nicaragua where we conceptualized Summers,” Taha explains. “We designed it to be a reflection of the healthy lifestyles that we and many surfers typically live.”

So you can sip your green juice (out of a glass milk bottle reminiscent of old-school Organic Avenue) or sip a Brooklyn Roasting Co. coffee at an indoor picnic table beneath a surfboard mounted on the wall.

The duo is pretty psyched about their locally sourced, seasonal menu. “At the moment we have an awesome egg, veggie, and turkey sandwich as well as a marinated kale salad,” says Taha. Plus, baked goods from famed Clinton Street Baking Co., since Kleinberg is the offspring of its owners.

The only thing missing is a warm ocean breeze. —Lisa Elaine Held
