Weekday lunch in Park Slope or Prospect Heights?

jinx Jun 11, 2013 11:30 AM

I'm having a heck of a time trying to find a place open for a nice weekday lunch (Tuesday) for a small group of co-workers. Anywhere in Park Slope or Prospect Heights would work--somewhere along 7th Ave or above best (we'd be coming from Prospect Park). I've looked at Thistle Hill, Fonda, Talde, Franny's, Bar Corvo, and a few others--nothing's open for lunch! Want something a bit nice, but not too pricey for a celebration. Any suggestions?

    Scalino seems like it would well fit the bill. I think they have lunch special pricing.

      The 12th St. Bar & Grill opens at 11:30 & serves thru dinner. It's on 8th Ave & 12th St.. Foods always been very good when I've eaten there and it's usually quiet. Dizzy's on 8th Ave and 9th St is ok but can get crowded.

          It's a little further being on 5th ave, but I've heard Stone Park Cafe is pretty tasty and I think they serve lunch. Anyway, it's all downhill from the park!

            Surfish (5th Ave, I think between 4th and 5th serves stylish and tasty peruvian food with an emphasis on seafood but meat also. Festive and good, good sangria, nice rear garden for a summer lunch. Al di La is also open for lunch weekdays.

              Faros, on 7th Ave. between Union and Berkeley would have been great. Good Greek food, and they treat you well.

                Thanks for the suggestions. 12th Street Bar & Grill might be perfect, didn't know they were open for lunch (have been there often for dinner.)

                Stone Park and also Al di la were considered but not sure we want to go down to 5th Ave, its a bit of a hike from where we will be.

                I think 12th St will work, although I can't seem to find a lunch menu anywhere.

                  For what it's worth, and not to rankle anyone, but I think 12th Street (which does look nice) is pretty mediocre. In my opinion Scalino and Okeanos, which I forgot to mention initially, make better food.

                    l had a sunday brunch there last week; it was decidedly meh. l wonder if they've changed owners? l seemed to remember it being a tad more chi-chi a few years back...
