The “foodification” of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens continues. We caught up with Gino this weekend, who was putting the finishing touches on “Gino’s Trattoria Bar and Restaurant,” the expansion of his brick oven pizzeria next door (emphasis his). Gino said the restaurant, at 548 Flatbush Avenue, should be open within the next few days but the liquor license may take another month. The pizzeria, one of three in Brooklyn run by Gino, has been in the neighborhood for 25 years. “The neighborhood is ready for a nice Italian restaurant,” he said.
