Brooklyn Nibbles: Park Slope Edition


An interesting new Seventh Avenue restaurant development on which to report:

Scalino is open and serving up Italian food in a cozy little space with big windows at the corner of 10th Street and Seventh Avenue. The menus includes appetizers like Peperonata (red and gold pepper stew)and Sauteed Baby Artichokes. There are pastas like Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli. Right now it's cash only and BYOB. It's open 5-11 Monday through Friday and 11-11 on Saturday and Sunday. It's the third restaurant to occupy the space in the last several years. There is discussion of the new spot on Chowhound, including reviews like the follwing:
We thoroughly enjoyed the food. My companion began with the Antipasto Toscano (prosciutto, salame & parmigiano) and I with the Sauteed Baby Artichokes. We followed with Paglia E Fieno Con Sugo (fresh thin pasta w/ meat sauce) and Pappardelle W/ Tomato Cream & Smoked Bacon respectively. It was all prepared with quality ingredients, executed well, and delicious!
The discussion thread is growing as more people try it out.

Robert: Why are you pimping more yuppie crap (or quality, whatever-- they don't "need" ** your ** attention at all) while ignoring the final death throes of Puerto Rican Smith Street? I know you were not here for the early stages but if you are going to play at this game, consider THE PEOPLE as much as the properties. It's a simple question of attentiveness and no matter your best intentions, you are so So SO stuck in your cultural biases.


On the other hand, posting the WB video was excellent.

Seriously, even if there's nothing that can be DONE, please even THINK about noting the change in HUMAN landscapes (i.e. demographics), not just structural. You can fool the other white dipshits but everyone else just wonders what the fuck your problem is.
