Brooklyn Nibbles: Park Slope Edition

Moim Restaurant

A couple of things to report on the Park Slope food scene:

1) Moim, a new Korean restaurant ("Modern Korean Cuisine," actually) is getting ready to open at Garfield and Seventh Avenue after a massive construction and renovation effort. One neighbor who watched the work joked that so much dirt and other material was taken out of the building during the building of the new restaurant (in a space that used to house a laundromat) that he thought "they were building an Olympic-sized swimming pool inside." Moim, pictured above, has a very non-Seventh Avenue front and contrasts rather strongly with its Old School Mexican neighbor Rancho Alegre. The restaurant's website isn't active yet.

2) Seventh Avenue pizza and pasta eat-in, carryout and delivery staple Pizza Plus had a significant fire late last week that not only burned out the eatery but also made all the residents upstairs homeless. The sad news was conveyed by OTBKB, which is also trying to coordinate donations for the victims of the fire and the workers rendered temporarily jobless by the fire. The eatery will rebuild and reopen. GL wishes them a speedy return.

We made a 20' extention and dug under 11' to make room for a kitchen at the cellar level....

"Moim, pictured above, has a very non-Seventh Avenue front and contrasts rather strongly with its Old School Mexican neighbor Rancho Alegre." -- You were perhaps expecting a Mexican-themed Korean restaurant instead, to go with the neighborhood decor?
