I've only been out there a handful of times; I'm seeing a show this Friday around 8 and I need a place to eat. I know about Applewood, Blue Ribbon, Al Di La, la-di-da -- any cool, small, relatively new places I should check out when I'm out there? I'm thinking an early dinner, probs around 5:30.

Can't really help you on any new or undiscovered places -- but I tremendously enjoy Blue Ribbon. Haven't been there for a while but I am really wanting to go back there.

"Undiscovered" is difficult. For a discovered, but not on your list, place (or should I say DISCOVERED!!!!!!), I recommend Franny's (Flatbush & Prospect Ave), since you can actually be there at a civilized hour and maybe get and hold a table for a while. Franny's isn't very big, it's certainly cool, and the food and drink are of mighty high quality.

For actually in Park Slope, I quite like Moutarde (the bistro across the street from Al Di La). Long Tan (5th Ave. & Union) looks like a generic, boring Pan-Asian place, but is IMHO shockingly tasty, especially if you go with the specials.

[EDIT: Cafe Steinhof, on 7th Ave & 14th St., is nice for local flavor. The food is not to my taste, but those friends with more of a liking for heavy Mittel-Europeen (in this case Austrian) food find it quite tasty. The beer and wine are of excellent quality as well.]

My local favorites are Rosewater, Applewood and Blue Ribbon on the upper end of the scale, Toto and Steinhoff for the mid range stuff and Tacos Nuevo Mexico for awesome 1 buck goat tacos.

Seconded on Tacos Nuevo Mexico.

Applewood, really? Why does everyone like that place so much?
