Prospect Park is well known for its cute cafes and wide array of restaurants. From French bistros to Moroccan holes-in-the-wall, there is a meal to be found for even the most selective palate. Lest resident’s worry about becoming bored with the current selection, there are are several new places opening as others close down.
One of the more popular new restaurants is actually an established sushi joint that got so much business it was able to expand. It has affordable lunch options, though it is still over $10 for a meal. Taro Sushi is now open on Flatbush Ave. and St. Mark’s Place, right in the nexus of several train lines for easy access. This well liked sushi bar is poised to do well in its new spot, with both reputation and location working in its favor.
As Taro Sushi opens its doors, The Brooklynian, a popular Brooklyn blog, reports that La Taqueria will be closing theirs, though take-out will still be available in the back. While the Department of Health closed this colorful Mexican restaurant and bar down briefly in recent weeks, it seems that a more permanent closure is now taking place. Luckily just a few blocks away a new Mexican restaurant, Taqueria De Los Muertos, opened its doors a couple months ago, so taco lovers can still get their fix.
Once dinner is eaten, dessert is waiting. The King of Cupcakes will be opening soon on 7th Avenue, joining a growing list of Park Slope restaurants, cafes and bakeries. For a more casual evening out or an after-dinner drink, the Thistle Hills Tavern is another dinner and drink establishment recently arrived to the neighborhood. This tavern doesn’t have typical bar food, however, boasting spicy clams, juicy burgers and other delicacies. The Kensington/Park Slope area is booming with activity, and residents can explore new meals and cultures every time they step out the door. No need to go into Manhattan – a world of options is easily found in Brooklyn.
