Brooklyn Park Slope

I live far away from my sweet 'baby' daughter who lives in Park Slope in Brooklyn. Of course i worry that she eats enough !!) and I would like to find a good kosher deli or restaurant in the neighborhood--so I can order once in while a barbecued chicken or some yummy deli to be delivered to her. Is there such a thing?? All suggestions appreciated by a 'Jewish Father' with a graduate degree in worry....
re: Stephanie Leveene
I was afraid of that--after I posted I went out to see if I could get a current menu, and it was shut, but it was also Sunday, late PM.
Another possibility for this devoted dad (and I'm just not familiar, being a veg) is a kosher caterer, who obviously deliver everywhere when there's a shiva or a bris.
This strange restaurant, much hated by its neighbors, is definitively gone. Had a federal marshals notice on the door and rumor is the former tenants owe the landlord $70,000. since they were incompetent restauranteurs, with a dirty floor, major garbage handling issues and seemingly little interest in actually serving food (the one time I went in, I couldnt attract anyone to serve me) they were no loss.
If you have the bucks send her fruit from the
best fruit store in the city at The Orchard
on Coney Island Ave. They will deliver fruit by the pound as well as party platters. Delivery is free
but the prices are high.
I don't know about Park Slope, Brooklyn, but in Brighton Beach we had a couple of food delivery services with cutesy-bordering-on-precious names like Takeout Taxi and Shnella Shmos, which did deliveries from various restaurants in the neighbourhood for a nominal ($5 or so) charge.
There was a LOT of kosher food because...well... it's Brighton Beach. I would suspect you can probably get something like this in Park Slope as well.
I just discovered Chowhound, and this thread, so
sorry for the very late response, but I live in
Park Slope, so here's the definitive answer:
There is *nothing* kosher in the Slope. There was
Seven Tents for a while, but it wasn't run like a
business, and in short order it went out of business.
Tea For Two, on Kings Highway, is apparently interested
in opening a place in the Slope, and was looking at
renting the location where Seven Tents used to be,
but the last I heard is that that's going to be a
furniture store, and T42 will have to find another
A kosher deli would do very well in the Slope, provided
it was run by someone who knew what they were doing.
Anyone know a of *good* kosher deli owner who is
looking to expand into a new neighborhood?
BTW, check out Congregation Bnai Jacob, the only
Orthodox shul in Park Slope. URL below (now I'll
see how this thing works...)
