another "farm" in Park Slope

Does anyone know if the place in the former St. Marks Bistro has opened, and if so, what is it being called? Thanks.

  1. The sign on the door (of the former Babinga space) is Flatbush Farm - they have posted a list of small (tapas type) dishes now, and it is definitely open.

    ps - the Ciao Bell ice cream store on the N. side of Flatbush is open too - dont know how that place stays in business with no actual food on display, closed ciao bella buckets, weird hours - unfortunately it will have a hard time competing with the new DD store that just opened across the street.

        A new Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins opened up at Flatbush and... Saint Mark's? Prospect Place? The south Side of Flatbush, somewhere. :)

          Yes, it's where the Charcuterie used to be. Now the 78th Precinct will have a close place to get donuts!

    1. The Farm is open, and it's nice inside. It's not a restaurant (at least not yet, don't know if that's the plan), just a bar with fancy snacks. It's quiet and has a nice atmosphere, a little expensive, but they had a good selection of wine by the glass or bottle and lots of different kinds of beer. I didn't try any food, but it was pleasant and they have armchairs to sit in while you have a drink.
