Brooklyn Nibbles: Random Roundup

1) In Park Slope, Elementi is now open on Seventh Avenue, occupying the old site of Snooky's the old neighborhood hangout. Let the Seventh Avenue Battle of the Italian Restaurants begin.

2) Speaking of, uh, Italian restaurants, The Food of the Future reports the, er, fascinating rumor that a new 12-story building will house an Olive Garden. The massive building is rising at 500 Fourth Avenue between 12th Street and 13th Street. Who knows, maybe Red Lobster and Applebee's will be moving in too.

3) Meanwhile, over on Van Brunt Street in Red Hook, FOF also reports that 360 is closed, possibly for good.

4) In case you missed it, both Curbed and Brownstoner reported earlier this week that a McDonald's may be opening on Smith Street in the storefront currently occupied by the Army & Navy store. If so, one more piece of old Smith Street will be falling, this time in an especially sad, corporate way. As one Curbed reader put it, "It fucking sucks."
