Park Slope recs


Recommended Posts

Unless he has a car Rosewater isn't close. The bandshell is at 11th St. and Prospect Park West. Rosewater is on Union and 6th Avenue. Tempo is fine but again not particularly close.

 

I would have recommended Tost, a first rate panini place and wine bar nearby but they're closed on Monday as well.

 

Futura, a respectable Argentinian steak place with lots of outside seating, is open until 12:00. I liked my ribeye fine and Steve said nice things about the parillada. They're on 9th St. just below 5th.

 

The 12th St. Bar and Grill is pretty well regarded. Very solid New American.

 

On the more casual side there's Johnny Mack's for excellent burgers and small thin crust pizzas. 8th Avenue and 12th St.

 

I also like Bar Toto as well. Good paninis and excellent burgers in a very pleasant room. Their lamb sausage panini is a standout. 11th St. and 6th Ave.

 

The NY Times liked Little Dishes on 7th Ave. but I thought it was bland and mediocre. Others like Cafe Steinhof but after 2 awful meals they are on my permanent death list.

11th St. to Union St. is not far to walk!!!

Depends on how hungry you are. It also depends on when the concert is over and how much time they have. I just want them to be able to make an informed decision.

"Them" should get their ass on here and post.

 

True enough. Tempo on 5th is one block from al di la and I believe both are open on Monday eves. So's Night and Day, which I hear ok things about and is on the other side of al di la. Owned by Cornelia St. Cafe owner. And, there's Blue Ribbon 3 doors down from Tempo which is open late if it's open at all on Mondays.

 

I'm intrigued to know that Stone Park Cafe is owned by a friend of Cathy's. I've never been, mainly because of all the reports that the owners have major attitude. The food's supposed to be very good but I've stayed away from Franny's for much the same reason. Cathy?

Has anyone been to Cafe Steinhof? The food has been described as "austrian comfort food" and the reviews have sounded interesting.

Apparently Monday's are "5 buck goulasch" night...

I had two meals there. The first consisted of bland goulash served 2 degrees above room temperature. The second was a tough schnitzel which didn't have much flavor. There was no third meal.

I think that there are folks around here who appreciate it but I found the food to be mediocre at best. To me, it was "Austrian Comfort Food" at the level that Teresa's is Polish Comfort Food or a Greek diner is Greek Comfort Food. No better, no worse.

From the bandshell, 12th Street Bar and Grill would be my first choice.

 

And a very good choice it would be. Surprised no one else mentioned it :huh: (same owners as 5 Front, by the way).

If it was you asking for the rec. I would have sent you to Farrell's. A perfect spot for post concert refreshment.
