Food & Drink mariella fritatta.jpg

Walking along 6th Avenue on Monday, we spotted a $10.95 lunch special at Mariella (492 6th Ave, between 12th and 13th) that was too good to pass up. The weather was still appropriately spring-like (curse you and your blasted snow, Mother Nature), so we snagged a spot on the patio and got ready to eat.
Business Taste of Fifth 2014 TN.jpg

The restaurants and bars of 5th Avenue brought their A game to A Taste of Fifth 2014 from the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID on Wednesday night, and as a sold out crowd descended on The Grand Prospect Hall, it quickly became apparent that organizers knocked this year’s event out of the park. We spent the evening
Food & Drink Alamo Wrap Naidres TN.jpg

The great outdoors was calling our name this afternoon, but before we made our way to the patio table, we wanted to find something for lunch that was fresh and light, but full of flavor. Enter our friends at Naidre’s and their Alamo wrap ($9.25). Like Naidre’s stellar breakfast burrito, the Alamo comes with black beans,
Business Atomic Wings TN

When one door closes, another door opens. Pitas and Sticks, a “fast casual Greek grill” is on its way to the former Atomic Wings space at 321 9th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues). Owner John Stamos (no, not that one) tells us that, in addition to a selection of draught beers, the new restaurant
Business uncle arthurs cafe TN.jpg

Craving a little lobster butternut squash bisque? We bring tidings of great joy! Richard Gussoff, owner of 7th Avenue’s popular pop-up restaurant, The Soup Bowl, officially opened Uncle Arthur’s Cafe, located at 237 9th Street (near 4th Avenue), this past weekend, and there are a number of tasty delights to look forward to on the menu.

I’ve been following Lisa Fain’s blog, Homesick Texan, for years now, and when it was announced that her latest cookbook, The Homesick Texan’s Family Table, would be featured in the Powerhouse on 8th cookbook tasting series, my native Lone Star heart skipped a little beat. So, we decided to sit down with Lisa to talk
Food & Drink grand army plaza food truck by kimchi taco

Along with Opening Day festivities, there’s another reason to stop by Prospect Park this weekend — the food trucks are back! Try cuisine from far and wide (parts of NYC) at the rally’s Grand Army Plaza outpost, or at their Parade Ground parking spot. Park representative Corinne Martin tells us that this year’s Grand Army Plaza
Events Bogato Bistro Taste of 5th

The official Taste of Fifth restaurant list has been released, and Mark Caserta, Executive Director of the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID, tells us that attendees have lots of delicious treats to look forward to, including samples from the recently announced Luke’s Lobster. The 2014 participants are: 200 Fifth ACME Wine and Spirits featuring Brooklyn Republic Vodka Al
Food & Drink Fatty Daddy Burrito.jpg

We love a tasty taco here at South Slope News, but sometimes it’s a good idea to shake things up a bit. Upon the realization that tacos were the only thing we’ve tried at 9th Street’s Fatty Daddy Taco (between 4th and 5th Avenues), we decided to give the chicken burrito a whirl. The burrito
Food & Drink lakeside skaters.jpg

You might not have to bring wine to Prospect Park in a thermos this summer, says the NY Daily News, because the Bluestone Cafe at Prospect Park’s Lakeside is hoping to soon secure a license to serve patrons wine and beer. Not everyone is on board, though–Gothamist (“The cafe reportedly hopes to serve beer and wine on the premises, located just feet
Food & Drink wine glasses

Passover is almost here, and if you’re already planning a wine list, consider ordering from Manhattan’s 67 Wine. The store has teamed up with our very own Park Slope Jewish Center (1320 8th Ave, between 13th and 14th Streets) for a fundraiser this year, and in addition to offering some fantastic bottles, will give 10% of
Food & Drink chicken soup.jpg

We’ve all been there. You’re a feverish, achy, coughing mess, and the idea of walking to the bathroom, let alone to the store for food, leaves you in a cold sweat. Your significant other is at the office, your mom is 1,600 miles away, and the only thing in the world you want is a
Business mezini.jpg

Looks like we’ve got some new lunch options on 5th Avenue. Signs posted outside of Mezini (492 5th Avenue, between 11th and 12th Street) announced over the weekend that starting today, March 17, they would begin serving a daily lunch menu from 12pm to 4pm. The offerings look quite tasty, and with the exception of
