A Vendy Award Winner Opens on 4th Ave (Also TACOS!)

It's just a scientific fact that in Park Slope, there's a serious lack of taco options. Sure there are a handful of places to grab a taco in the hood, from Oaxaca to Tacos Nuevo to that Jalapeno NYC truck that's been showing up on 5th Ave recently, but most of them are ultimately forgettable. With that in mind, taco lovers have been salivating in anticipation of 2008 Vendy Cup winner Calexico's impending move into the spot formerly occupied by Blue Ribbon Sushi.

While the wait for the Park Slope Calexico continues, this past Saturday another Vendy Award-winning taco purveyor quietly opened up shop in the neighborhood—Country Boys. They've been around since 1993 & as the winner of the 2009 Vendy Cup, they became the first vendor from the Red Hook Ballfields to take home the prize.

Since Red Hook's far & the Brooklyn Flea's become "too hipster" for you, Country Boys has decided to come to you, Park Slope citizen, taking over the space on the corner of 4th Ave & 16th St that was formerly occupied by J&R Restaurant.

Breaking: Manhattan Finally Gets Some Culture

photo credit: Rebecca Ashley PhotographyWe know you're probably sick of our little obsession with 5th Avenue yogurt emporium Culture...but we don't give a shit. 

We just got the inside scoop from co-owners Jenny and Gino Ammirati that they signed a lease at 60 West 8th Street in Manhattan, where they expect to open their second location this Spring. Sweet nectar of the gods, this is exciting news. New York Magazine wrote about the burgeoning food scene on West 8th Street last April, so Culture will fit right in. Lucky you, West Village people!

Holy crab (sorry.)

For all of you seafood lovers in the nabe, a new crab place opens today at 833 Union, between 6th/7th Avenues. According to The Crab Spot's Twitter page, they'll be open starting at 2PM, and will serve a combo of crab dishes and seafood pots, like the Crab Royale ($34.99), a combo of dungeness crab, snow crab and king crab served with red potatoes and corn on the cob, with the option of having the dish prepared in the following ways: simply steamed, garlic olive oil, old bay, chipotle bbq, spicy boiled or grilled.

GET PORKED at Landhaus

DO YOU WANNA GET PORKED???!!! Sweet! So do I!...Like ALL the time. PORKED IN THE MOUTH.

Unfortunately, as of lately I've been getting a little bored with all the places in Park Slope that I usually go to GET PORKED. That's why it's so perfect that two weeks ago Thursday Landhaus, Brooklyn's wandering pork purveyors, moved into the space occupied this past summer by People's Pops.

Landhaus has earned that "wandering" tag over the past few years by foregoing a physical space in favor of a booth at Smorgasburg & The Brooklyn Flea, and a menu served out of The Woods, a Williamsburg bar. Park Slope makes TOTAL sense for their first physical locale, as their slogan is "Farm to Sandwich." You Park Slopers love that locavore shit.

The tiny storefront space, however, is better suited for take-out due to the dearth of seating. Sure, you can sit at one of the few seats along the wall, or you can do like I did & eat off of the Ms. Pac Man machine, but if you show up on an eve where more than a half-dozen people are looking to GET PORKED in-house, you're pretty much taking that shit to go.

FiPS Exclusive: Crespella to open second location in South Slope

Photo via www.designworklife.com

There are lots of places in this neighborhood to get coffee, but Crespella (321 7th Avenue at 9th Street) will always have a place in my heart because of their super tasty, highly-addictive, Oh-My-God-I-Want-To-Marry-You crépes. Which is why I'm extra excited to hear that Crespella is opening a second location right here in the Slope.
