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....
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...)
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.
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.
