Thank you for 15 years
& What's Next
To Our Customers:
We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for 15 amazing years in service, and it is bittersweet for us to announce that we are closing Mangoseed + Zurilee (for now), in order to pursue our next big venture.
We started Mangoseed when there was no other dine-in restaurant in the neighborhood. People thought we were crazy, but we went for it, and we are ever grateful that we did. We could not have done it without all of you and your unwavering support for us. We have enjoyed many meals, many packed brunches, Karaoke nights, parties, and one too many rum punches and we will miss it.
To those of you who don't know, the owners (Jermaine, Paul, and Johann) are professional cyclists, and when they are not in kitchen, they are out racing bikes. Our new venture is Burrowes Brothers Bikes: a bike shop and community hub for all things cycling that will open up in October at our home address of 755 Flatbush Avenue. Not just a bike shop, Burrowes Brothers Bikes will offer classes, private training, bike repair, and will have a pizza bar for daily takeout/ delivery and special events. SO yes! You can STILL get your rum punch and your Zurilee Pizza fix! Mangoseed is not gone for good, and we will let everyone know when and where in the future Mangoseed will be.
This week is our last week that our dining room will be open before the renovations for Burrowes Brothers Bikes begins. We will be serving PIZZA ONLY and our full drink menu. As a thank you, ALL drinks are Happy Hour ALL DAY and ALL WEEK LONG.
Pizza, Margaritas, Beer, and Rum Punch will be available for takeout & delivery starting August 2nd, but our bar and dining room will be closed.
Thank you again for an AMAZING 15 years and we will see you soon.

Taco Mondays at Mangoseed
June 5, 2022
Nothing to do on a hot Summer Monday night? Mangoseed + Zurilee is open on Mondays this summer for Taco and Margarita Mondays. The dining room will remain closed on Mondays, but the bar, bar area seating, and newly added sidewalk seating will be open and available to guests. Instead of the regular dinner menu, a special Taco menu is available to customers featuring a jerk chicken taco and our beloved jerk fish taco. The spicy jerk Salmon is cooled with chipotle aioli and guacamole. Pickled cabbage adds a fresh pop and each element is stacked artfully in a beet tortilla.
Happy hour specials will be offered and The full bar will be available. But nothing goes better with the tacos than Mangoseed's margaritas. Tropical options include mango, passion fruit, or guava margaritas made with fresh juices. Especially refreshing is the cucumber margarita made with freshly squeezed lime and cucumber juices and garnished with sweet tamarind.
Every Monday in Summer 5-10pm | Mangoseed + Zurilee | 755 Flatbush Ave
Outdoor Seating Opens for Fall
Labor Day has passed, Summer is “over” but instead of moving on to indoor activities, Mangoseed + Zurilee Restaurant is still having fun outdoors. This Saturday, September 18th, 2021, we will reopen our backyard seating for Fall. The weather continues to be beautiful, which is reason enough to keep enjoying outdoor dining in Brooklyn. But the restaurant is making things even more festive for Fall.
Our backyard seating features four toasty fire pits and specialty hot cocktails that will keep customers warm as chilly nights start to set in. Happy hour specials last from 4pm-7pm Tuesday through Friday, and our hot cocktail menu features spiked cider, delicious mulled wine, and more.
The Mangoseed + Zurilee backyard is a fun thing to do in the city when many things are still closed down from the Covid-19 pandemic. Afternoon hours of 4pm- 10pm Tuesday through Thursday and 4pm-11pm Friday & Saturday, make it a convenient place to eat and drink for tourists and locals alike. On Sundays we offer an all-day brunch from 11am to 6pm.
Mangoseed +Zurilee was founded as Mangoseed Restaurant, in 2009. At the time, it was the first dine-in restaurant in the neighborhood. Recently, Mangoseed re-branded as Mangoseed + Zurilee, combining its menu with its sister restaurant’s menu. Its offering of wood-fired pizzas and Caribbean-inspired dishes make it a must-try spot for anyone passing through the neighborhood in Brooklyn fondly known as Little Caribbean.
The restaurant is near Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum, and Kings Theater. Conveniently located at 755 Flatbush Avenue, Mangoseed + Zurilee is also just steps away from the Lefrak center (the ice skating rink in Prospect Park) and the famed historical Church on Church Avenue.
