park slope advice (time sensitive!) for 4/9
I need to spend about 4.5 hours in Park Slope starting late afternoon. I have nothing planned except the start and end times.
Where should I go for an early dinner (someplace a middle aged woman dining alone wouldn't seem/feel out of place)? Dessert elsewhere? A cute cafe to hang out (preferable with free internet in which case i'll bring the laptop) on Saturday evening? Maybe even someplace with an early set of live music: jazz or folk to go with the post-prandial cup of tea?
Any good food - ethnic or not - that won't cost a fortune. I'd prefer to be in jeans...so nothing too fancy!
Thanks in advance to the Brooklyn Hounds!
thanks for the suggestions.
after all that i got a call from bronx friends who wanted to meet for dinner, so (at their suggestion) we went to grimaldi's. i will post in the new haven pizza thread (since i'm a ct hound) about the comparison to sallys/pepes. suffice to say i did not think it was worth the 75 minute wait on line! oh well...
Dear lord, people are still waiting 75 minutes for Grimaldi's? The next time you're in town, please don't waste it like you did this weekend - and don't think of Grimaldi's as somehow representing what New York pizza can be! Try Motorino, Fornino, Di Fara, Franny's, Zero Otto Nove (if your friends are in the Bronx, after all)... so many great ones to choose from, and you ended up at a place that most certainly isn't.
