Blue Ribbon Sushi in Park Slope Packs Up and Moves to Shutsville

Blue Ribbon Sushi in Park Slope, on 5th Ave between Garfield and 1st, is calling it quits after 10 years. Not a huge surprise, as a peek through the wood slats never revealed a full house.

The lease is up March 1st but the plan is to move next door with Blue Ribbon Brasserie.

With the high profile invasion of restaurants to Park Slope, one can only wonder who's going to take up the new lease.


Park Slope's Aunt Suzie to Become Uncle Talde

It was confirmed today that the team behind Thistle Hill Tavern and the 1-month-old Talde will be taking the space that was home to Aunt Suzie for 25 years in Park Slope.

No details as to the name or the menu, but the new haunt will serve as an after hours spot for many a Park Sloper, and with future neighbors opening a block away, the stretch of 5th Ave between 1st and Carroll stands to be quite the destination.


Park Slope BBQ, Chapter One

Fort Reno Provisions is a new BBQ spot in Park Slope from the team behind Palo Santo.  Although it sounds like there's a lot to complain about, they deserve credit for bringing the first BBQ joint to the neighborhood and putting the BBQ birdy in Park Slope's ear. 

The headliners will arrive soon.


Al Di La Sibling Bar Corvo to Open Tonight in Prospect Heights

The 14 year veteran of Park Slope that always yields rave reviews is opening and offshoot across town tonight.  Bar Corco, located at 791 Washington Street, will bring casual Italian food to Prospect Heights.


Great Lakes Space to Become Terroir Park Slope

Great Lakes, the dive bar sat on the corner of 5th Avenue and 1st Street since 1997, closed about 2 months ago.  Rumors are confirmed that the Terroir team will be occupying the space.  An opening date hasn't been released.

Bring on the vintage Rieslings.


Dinosaur BBQ to Open in Park Slope

After years on the road selling Gianelli sausage from the back of a 55-gallon drum hitched to his motorcyle, John Stage opened the first Dinosaur Barbecue in Syracuse, New York. That happened in 1988. Ten years later Rochester, NY got a Dinosaur. Then in 2004 Stage brought his 'cue to Harlem. Troy, NY got a taste of Wango Tango in 2010, and work is underway on a Newark, NJ location.

Now it's Brooklyn's turn. A sign taped to the former Perfect mechanic shop at 604 Union Street (btwn 3rd and 4th Aves) reveals Stage is applying for a liquor license. A community board meeting is to be held tonight at 65 6th Ave. Let’s hope the Dino reps get themselves a liquor license so we can get this ball of prehistoric barbecue rolling.
