A sign just went up for a new business coming to the corner of Fourth and 10th. This was formerly home to the West Indian Slope Cafe, which closed late last year, after a couple of years of serving delicious but under-appreciated food. I'm still thinking of that
ackee & saltfish. I hope that the "breadfruit" in the cafe name promises more West Indian food to come.
Meanwhile Table 87 Gowanus , an outpost of a pizza restaurant in Brooklyn Heights, is set to open at Third and 10th soon (or is it actually open already?) and has applied for a sidewalk cafe license. Imagine the response you'd have got pitching the concept of al fresco dining on Third merely a few years back. The times, the times.
