    Pasta Louise

    Italian Restaurant in Park Slope


    This Italian restaurant in Park Slope offers delicious food, pretty rooms, and a nice story to go with it. Pasta Louise’s logo depicts owner Allison’s grandmother, who once taught her how to cook. Everything is served fresh: homemade pasta, sauces, bread and desserts. Flowers hang everywhere, walls are painted with pasta, and there is a cozy bar and the “grandmother wall”, on which pictures of Grandma Louise and the employees’ grandmothers hang. Pasta Louise only opened in July 2020, but locals have come to appreciate the excellent brunch and dinner offerings. In summer, you can also enjoy the romantic ambiance outdoors.

    Other Restaurants in Park Slope

    Looking for the best brunch spot in Park Slope? Miriam is the place for you. That’s exactly why this Mediterranean restaurant is so popular. The colorful Israeli cuisine brings Tel Aviv right to your plate. Be sure to try the green shakshuka. It’s an absolute hit here! Of course, you can also come to Miriam for dinner. We recommend making a reservation, but there are usually still places available spontaneously, especially outside. Inside the restaurant, the seating is a little narrow and it’s busy, but that’s exactly what makes it so charming: the feeling of sitting in a relaxed atmosphere among neighbors.

    Al Di La Trattoria

    Italian Restaurant in Park Slope

    best Restaurant Little Italy NYC

    A classic among the restaurants in Park Slope with authentic northern Italian cuisine: Al Di La, run by husband and wife Emiliano Coppa and chef Anna Klinger since 1998. The rustic-style interior with wooden chairs, chandeliers on the ceiling, and heavy curtains makes you feel like you’re in a restaurant in Italy. Time has stood still here and it’s easy to forget that you’re in Park Slope Brooklyn. The tagliatelle al ragú, mussels, and dishes with polenta are particularly popular. As the hype surrounding the restaurant grew, the couple also expanded their premises to include a cozy wine bar next door, Al Di La Vino. A clear recommendation!

    American Restaurant in Park Slope

    For fresh burgers and craft beer, we can recommend this small but fine restaurant, where you can eat in a relaxed atmosphere and watch sports over a cold beer at the bar.

Our favorite: the B&B burger with bacon, brie, and a crispy onion ring. There is also a large selection of sliders (small burger bites). It gets crowded in summer. You can’t make a reservation. Just go there, you might end up on the waiting list. But this Park Slope restaurant is worth the wait.

There is seating at a counter and a few tables as well as outdoor seating. The restaurant is popular. Be prepared to wait for a table.
