Baluchi's Opening on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope

Baluchi's, the Indian chainlet, which closed its Smith Street eatery this Spring and also shut down its Bay Ridge location, is opening a new branch on Fifth Avenue. The new Baluchi's, as noted in Chowhound, will be at 310 Fifth Avenue in the Slope. It will be in the space formerly occupied by Lu Lu's Cuts and Toys, which relocated to 48 Fifth Avenue some time ago.

Now, you might shrug and say 'big deal,' but with the utter medocrity of Indian food choices in and around Park Slope and Carroll Gardens, we actually welcome the reopening of Baluchi's. At this point some of you will accuse of having no taste in Indian food. We do. We're simply tired of having to hit up our fave Manhattan spots or of schleping to Queens and, specifically, to Jackson Heights to get it. If the right person is in the kitchen, Baluchi's is not a bad option to have in the nabe on a night when you want some Indian but don't want to go out of borough.
