Casual weekend lunch in Park Slope

cjd260 May 8, 2007 12:29 PM

Hello all,

I'm waking up early enough on weekends these days that I can't stomach the wait until brunch, but have a bowl of cereal in the morning instead. But this has left me with a problem: what to do about lunch? I've found myself going to tempo presto practically every time I want a sandwich, and it's beginning to wear a bit thin. I'm looking for somewhere I can sit down - in a garden would be ideal, but I daren't hope - and have a sandwich (just not from Tempo Presto!) or something else reasonably light. I live on 14th st., and I adore Little D for dinner (and their garden is my new favorite place in the world), but it's a bit heavy for lunch.

I don't know if such a thing is even possible, but if so, I'm pretty sure this is where to find it. Help me out!

    I'm always happy with Bar Toto- 475 6th Ave (and it sounds like what is your Tempo Presto is my Bar Toto- maybe we should switch and both try something new). They make the best bloody marys that I've ever had and their prices are great! Also they offer sidewalk seating...not exactly a garden, but still nice to be outside.

      No garden, but good food and a full lunch-y menu at Jack's (5th Avenue between 13 and 14). Not a pretty place, but tasty and well-priced.

        You can have exactly that: a sandwich, in a garden, at Press 195 on 5th ave near Sackett.

        It's a bit of a trek from 14th street, but they do make a good panini, and have some nice salads to boot.
