i want to have a good meal tonight in park slope or prospect heights

i know this is vague.
i am willing to spend money but i would prefer more casual/cheaper eats as well.
so there's al di la, applewood, and franny's...
there's bonnies for burgers...
there's blue ribbon...

i don't feel much like thai or japanese. i know there's the korean spot that was reviewed in the times recently.

what am i missing? are there any special places on 5th or 4th that i am forgetting?
just for good food and drinks of whatever variety?

  1. Tempo.
    Cafe Tapeo if you're feeling tapas-y.
    I like the new-ish habachi placae further down 5th -- don't remember the name of it.

    The Korean place is called Moim and it is on Garfield just off of 7th.

      I am a big fan of BAr Toto there rigatoni with brocoli rabe and sausage is so yummy, it's a nice atmosphere. I also like CAfe Steinhoff.

      1. Palo Santo is another idea. I really enjoyed everything my friend and I ordered a couple of weeks ago. The wine list was regional and well-priced. Service was great...thought it was just a good experience all around.

        1. I'm the new girl in town, so take that for what it's worth, but I had a really poor experience at Blue Ribbon last week. Totally overrated, IMHO. Perhaps I've been spoiled by my last wonderful offal experience (a la Jamie Bissonnette from KO Prime in Boston), but Blue Ribbon's dishes were not up to par.

          1. TEMPO has been consistently excellent.

            The food is excellent. The price is right. Prix Fixe $35 weekends, $25 weekdays
