Brooklyn Fifth Ave.

I took a walk down Fifth Ave. yesterday, and spied a lot of great looking spots along the Park Slope-Sunset Park axis. There's Mexican, Salvadoran, Ecuadorian, Polish -- anyone have any recommendations? The International, around 45th Street, seemed to have a big crowd, anyone been there? I ended up at the swell Coco Roco, but aim to try some new spots.

Aunt Susie's! It's across the street from the more expensive, more snooty, more sophisticated (but good) Cucina. Aunt Susie was 5th Ave before it was cool (about 10 years). It's Italian and homestyle with some twists. Great sundried tomatoes and peppercorns in pink sauce. Wonderful cream sauces. Friendly staff and a great mix of clientele. Also wonderful old tables. It's lots of food so don't order too much. This isn't nouvelle; it's italian. Lines can be long on weekends.
