Another place that looks good but outside my budget:
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?
