February 23rd, 2009 · 6 Comments

Another old Fifth Avenue landmark in Park Slope is about to change.

Brookyn Nibbles: Slope’s NoNo Kitchen Shall Be No More

February 3rd, 2009 · 2 Comments

Park Slope’s NoNo Kitchen is for rent. A couple of weeks ago we’d noticed some strange signs in the window about how the menu was being changed, which struck us as signs that the Cajun spot (which we never cared for much) was having some trouble. The “for rent” sign now in the window indicates […]

Something is up at 314 Seventh Avenue, which is the now vacant site of a former laundromat.
