Gowanus Lounge: Serving Brooklyn

Boston Globe Digs Park Slope’s D’Vine Taste

June 22nd, 2006 · No Comments

If you live in Park Slope, or have wandered down Seventh Avenue, chances are you are familiar with D’Vine Taste. Especially since their major, major expansion into serious gourmet territory. Turns out the Boston Globe like them too. Specifically:

D’Vine Taste is a gourmet market in Brooklyn, in the middle of Park Slope’s tree-lined, brownstone neighborhood. Nalie Elsebaie, a native of Lebanon, runs D’Vine Taste with the help of her two brothers. Besides the wonderful selection of olive oils from Spain, France, and Italy, they carry five olive oils from Lebanon, which Elsebaie describes as having a stronger, greener taste. Make sure to sample the fresh fig treats, with figs imported from Lebanon.

Gowanus Lounge has not sampled the fig treats, but one of the hallmarks of our trips up or down Seventh Avenue is the presence of one of the D’Vine Taste brothers cutting up the fig treats in the front window for shoppers.
