A Look Around Brooklyn Central: Now Open in Park Slope

Brooklyn Central opened at 289 5th Ave in Park Slope Wednesday.  The new project from the guys behind Sottocasa on Atlantic Avenue is the first to open from our Brooklyln Edition of A Taste of Tastes to Come.  A simply decorated room, exposed brick, and wood tables make for a rustic setting to enjoy "Old World" and "New World" pizza creations.  For starters; cesar, kale, and arugula salads provide a few green options while meatballs and oven roasted octopus showcase the Italian lean.  For the Neapolitan-style pizzas, the Old World options are a bit more traditional, made with mozzarella di bufala imported from Campania in Italy.  New World pizzas are made with fresh mozzarella from Brooklyn.  The full menu is here.  We stopped in before service tonight and snapped a few pictures.

A backyard patio will provide extra seating come springtime.  The liquor license is on its way.  For now you can enjoy a slew of drinks in the form of Kombucha on tap ($4) and sparkling concoctions like the B and G ($4) with basil, grapefruit, seltzer, and honey, or the Hibiscus Twist ($4) with hibiscus, cranberry, seltzer, and lemon. 

Mozzarella and cured meats are being made in-house and all other ingredients, where possible, are being sourced from Brooklyn.  That includes Steve's Key Lime Pies from Red Hook for dessert.  If key lime's not your thing, get the S'mores calzone.
