Nice place for a sit-down lunch on 5th Ave in Park Slope?

Meeting a friend for lunch--where's a special place to go on 5th near Union St?

    Belleville is very nice, especially with the front windows open. Also good right around there are Cocotte and Mura for sushi.

        I truly disliked Belleville and can't see why it's on so many people's lists... our service was horrid, food was average (even for a French bistro), and the place is reminiscent of a cheapen out Pastis.

        I heard L'Aile ou la Cuisse opened a new branch out in Park Slope... has anyone been?

        There are so many! I like Perch, Brooklyn Fish Camp and, although I haven't been there, I hear that Belleville is very nice.
