New N. Slope 5th Ave Restaurants
Another place that looks good but outside my budget: From NYMag: The Slope Gets Gastropub â€” With Garden, Perfect for Six Months From Now "Kevin Read, former barkeep at Lucky Strike, has given a post-Victorian makeover to a Park Slope hardware store, trucking in a 100-year-old bar, and will soon open Alchemy, a bar-restaurant inspired by his time in the townhouse gastropubs of Hempstead, London. Chef Jared King â€” formerly of Windows on the World, Oceana, and most recently, Peacock Alley â€” will cook $12 to $25 entrÃ©es of roasted chicken, ravioli, seasonal stews, and a hangar steak in red-wine reduction, plus more adventurous specials made with game and organ meat. Ingredients will be largely local, organic, and free-range, and come spring the patrons will be free-range too: There's a garden in the back." Alchemy, 56 Fifth Ave., nr. Bergen St,; Park Slope, Brooklyn There are a lot of changes going on in these storefronts. I've noticed two other eateries opening in the area, an "Asian Fusion" called Picasso and a Caribbean place (forgetting name). Anybody heard anything more about any of these three? Any others?
Walked past Picasso earlier today. Looks like a nice little place, although the menu didn't seem Asian fusion to me. Can't remember what it was, but I do't think it was Asian. Maybe I'm wrong; I looked at about 500 menus walking down 5th. Speaking of which, I walked past Apropos Cafe on 5th. Anyone know how long that's been open? Looks cute.
Hmm. So this guy is from Hempstead, London? No such place. Maybe he means Hampstead Where is Picasso? Is the Caribbean place on 5th open now?Do you know where you're going to
