Tonight: Park Slope - Near the R train at 9th Street

Any suggestions for a good meal?

I am getting off at this subway and then going to 5th and 5th.

I am never in Park Slope and there are so many that I want to try that are close, but its just too cold tonight.

  1. Cocotte is on Fourth st and Five Ave. The food is quite good and it's cozy in there, ideal for a cold night.

        I agree, stone park is a great option. Depending on what time you get there though, it might be kind of crowded. It gets pretty busy on Friday nights.

          true! i guess if you are willing to dine at the bar, you could increase the chance of getting in.

          Blue Ribbon is also in the area

            If you want something slightly more casual than Stone Park, why not Sheep Station at 4th and Degraw? A great burger, I've also had good mussels and fries there, and like the atmosphere a lot. More of a pub w/good food than a resto, but I'd recommend.

      2. I agree that Stone Park at 3rd Street is a great option.

        For cheap and awesome Thai, try Song between 1st and 2nd. It gets packed, so get there early or be prepared to wait at the bar!

        1. I'd concur on the suggestions above, and perhaps add Al di Là on Fifth and Carroll. One point, though -- if you're taking the R, and want to avoid the cold, you might consider getting off at Union St., which is one stop closer to Manhattan than 9th Street. It's a bit further from your eventual destination (three or four short blocks), but much closer to Sheep Station (on Fourth Ave.), Blue Ribbon, Al di La, Bonnie's...essentially most of the Fifth Ave. restaurant row.

            I would add Tempo and Palo Santo. Tempo is great value, especially for a high end meal.

            Although I have had some very good food at Song, I recently ordered from there and had an awful experience - the food was basically inedible.

          2. As has already been mentioned, there are both Blue Ribbon and Blue Ribbon Sushi just a few short blocks past 5th Street. If you get to Blue Ribbon by 6:30 or so, you should be able to walk in and get a table right away.
