Brooklyn Nibbles: Park Slope Edition

IMG_6747

A couple of new additions to the Seventh Avenue food and retail scene in Park Slope:

1) Brooklyn Pita, pictured above, appears nearly ready to join the storefront food fray on Seventh Avenue near Ninth Street. Maybe they will even offer a decent falafel.

2) The new Bank of America ATM storefront brings banking to Seventh Avenue near Ninth Street to a stretch where the only ATMs were previously those over-priced ones you find in storefronts. We don't cheer bank branches and more than we do any other chain retailer, as they speak more to the high cost per square foot of retail space than to the overall health and vitality of a neighborhood retail strip, but this part of Seventh Avenue next to the F Train actually needed a bank. It even appears somewhat better maintained than the notoriously gross and messy Bank of America storefront at Seventh Avenue and Union Street.

3) Delices de Paris, which has an interesting history, has reopened after being shut down by the Health Department, originally for mouse droppings. Then, it became caught in the backwash of the KFC-Taco Bell West Village Rat Olympics and subsequent Health Department rampage. Extra points to those that can keep this Park Slope tale of love, marraige, breakup, pastry and mouse turds straight.

Hey, i was walking by 7th ave the other day with my fiance. we walked by this place called Brooklyn Pita, my fiance and I decided to go in and give it a try. she ordered the chicken gyro and i ordered the grilled chicken with fries. To be perfectly honest with you the food was delicious, they have a open bar for about 10 different salads, unlimited, the staff there are very friendly, they try to fulfill every need. Bottom line is that this place is nice, i like the middle eastern type of food, good quality, cheap and its open till 11pm.
