HOMME • Summers

Meet Alex and Chris

Founders, Summers Brooklyn

New York native meets a California dude. They bond over surfing and food and out comes Summers Brooklyn, the go-to juice and sandwich spot in Williamsburg. When Taha and Alex met at Clinton Street Baking Company, (Alex is a part of the CSBC family, Taha well acquainted in the restaurant world) the ideas for their own brand grew quickly. With egg sandwiches made with Clinton Street biscuits and Sriracha as an ingredient, Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee and juices that serve the yoga expert and fashion designers like Mara Hoffman, Summers Brooklyn is the product of when great minds, and both coasts, come together. —Sarah Kim
