With the commencement of Dine In Brooklyn drawing near, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams announced the winner of a contest held to design a new logo for the 2016 iteration of the event.
Adams announced on Wednesday, July 6 that an entry by Park Slope graphic designer Jeffrey Rosenkrantz will be used to advertise this summer’s event, held annually to celebrate and promote Brooklyn’s foodie subculture.
“Dine In Brooklyn celebrates the restaurants that define the enviable Brooklyn brand and have visitors from around the world — many of them from just across the East River,” said Adams. “Whether you enjoy brunch in Brighton Beach, lunch along Lorimer Street, or dinner in DUMBO, there’s plenty to satisfy any foodie craving.”
Rosenkrantz received a $1,000 prize for his design, which features the top portion of the Brooklyn Bridge cast in blue on top of a golden serving platter. According to Rosenkrantz, the logo’s “blue and gold colors also reflect the seal of the City of Brooklyn.”
Dine In Brooklyn is held in partnership with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, Visa, Brokelyn.com, BrooklynReporter.com and Yelp. This year, the event will be held from Thursday, August 11 until Monday, August 22.
“As publishers of The Home Reporter, Brooklyn Spectator, BrooklynReporter.com, Brokelyn.com, and Best of Brooklyn, we are delighted to promote the restaurant industry with such an amazing program to drive business and awareness to the greatest selection of restaurants you can find anywhere,” said Joshua and Victoria Schneps, co-publishers of Brokelyn.com and BrooklynReporter.com.
Foodies participating in the event will be offered prix fixe menus for brunch, lunch and dinner. Meanwhile, participating restaurants will receive window decals as well as special Visa check presenters.
