Brooklyn Nibbles: Brook-Vin Opened Last Night

January 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments

Brook-Vin, the much anticipated new Park Slope wine bar at 387 Seventh Avenue (between 11th & 12th Streets) opened to a packed house last night and a crowd that got thicker as the night wore on. There was a lot of wine flowing and containers of liquids like bacon-infused bourbon and fruit-soaked vodkas sitting on the shelves. We spent some time with Brooklyn Paper Editor Gersh Kuntzman, reporter Mike McLaughlin and the Daily News’ Jotham Sederstrom and even ran into Park Slope Parents founder Susan Fox on our way out. Looks to us a new Slope hang out has arrived. (Besides the wine, beer and various liquors, there’s also a selection of good-looking food on the menu.

    What makes something “much anticipated”?
    I live in the neighborhood and my neighbors haven’t been talking about Brook-Vin at all.
    Seems they’re talking about their jobs, the inauguration, the weather, anything but…
    Sure, it’s been mentioned more than a few times on GL and other blogs. Do I hear a shill? Or am I just too sensitive?

    Too sensitive. Anyone who has shopped at Big Nose Full Body or walked by that space to get to the 7th Ave F stop (or anywhere north of South Slope) has wondered when BV would open.

    I live in the neighborhood and I was highly anticipating the opening as were some of my friends in the hood. I’m excited to try it!
