Slope Retail Report: Hunan Wok Becomes Park Slope Farm

January 16th, 2009 · 2 Comments

The Seventh Avenue restaurant Hunan Wok, which closed down about a month ago, is morphing into a bodega/convenience store. Per a poster on Brooklynian: “There’s now an awning up for your standard corner store, presumably selling old vegetables, milk, beer, ice cream and chips.” Another poster writes: “The new sign says OPEN 24 HOURS!! i’m THRILLED about the new ‘park slope farm‘ i believe it’s called. We desperately need a nice bodega on this stretch of 7th which is open all night. So much better than the absolutely crappy chinese place which was there before. Horrible food and VERY unclean place.”

    It was a lousy restaurant (although my kid had a mysterious affection for their brown-sauce-on-everything menu); I just wish it would be a really good produce store instead of a standard deli/bodega with a small, mediocre produce selection. Or a really good butcher or fish store. Not a “gourmet” foofy place; just decent basics. How old-school!

    This place is a little disappointing. It’s a mix of good food and junky stuff. After the original Purity shut down, it’s been a bummer but I hope these guys improve their offerings.
