Brooklyn Nibbles: Tempo Presto Closure Edition
There are Park Slope food & drink-related developments to report, with one being a closure and another being an opening:
1) It would appear that Tempo Presto on Seventh Avenue at Third Street is about to become Tempo Morto. First came the rumor: Tempo Presto is closing. Then came word on Brooklynian that a "For Lease" sign has been spotted in the window of the storefront that has gone through a number of incarnations. Says one poster on Brooklynian: "its not the place. its Michael Fiore. he brought down both Cucina and TP. Hopefully he will let the dream go and find another venue to torture his employees. I say good riddance." Safe to say, then, that not everyone in the Slope was a convert, although many are mourning the potential loss of favorite sandwiches.
2) Beer Table is getting closer to opening further south on Seventh Avenue in the space formerly occupied by Tost. According to Beer Table's website: "Beer Table is an intimate drinking and eating room that serves a daily selection of rare and special beers paired with an unusual assortment of snacks, preserved foods, and small meals." Beer Table will be at 427B Seventh Avenue, which is between 14th and 15 Streets.
