BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Everything old is new again at a new Bed-Stuy restaurant, built with recycled materials.

Windows, doors, fire escape railings and even pews from churches and synagogues have taken on a new purpose at Dekalb Restaurant. Owner Ras Levi says the recycled pieces are meant to establish contact with the past. 

The recycled pieces are also meant to add a rustic charm to restaurant, which serves up healthy, organic food.

The owners also price their menu to be affordable for all diners.
