Review: Park Slope Restaurant

Park Slope Restaurant
492 5th Avenue (between 11th and 12th Streets)
F/M/R to 4th and 9th; B63

Reviewed by Sarah D. Bunting

Fast, cheap, and under control.

The Order:
Greek omelet with rye toast and home fries; coffee; tomato juice.

The Food:
Perfectly adequate. Nothing special, but nothing notably terrible. I have a couple of minor quibbles -- overcooked egg (which I prefer to the alternative), and a weirdly hashy chop to the home fries, whose lack of onion or pepper left them pretty dry -- but the plates arrived to the table in under five minutes. This is somewhat unusual for a weekday-mid-morning order, when the kitchen may have gone on partial break between rushes, but it's awesome.

Very good toast, not overbuttered.
