Open and Shut


    Park Slope
    Finally! After a long battle with the surrounding neighborhood, Woodland (aka Prime Six) opened on Flatbush Avenue, reports Here’s Park Slope. Says HPS: “This is a new type of restaurant for the neighborhood: sprawling, multi-level, glamorous, pricey.” There are two floors which include a bar, a large backyard with an open grill, a lounge, and a private dining room. The menu is very meat heavy… you can see a copy over at HPS. The image above comes from the website as well. Also open in Park Slope: English-style Monro Pub now serving English brews at 5th Avenue between 11th and 12th Street, Banyo, a fancy shmancy Turkish bathrobes/textiles store at 421 7th Avenue, and Yogurberry on the corner of 5th and Prospect. The New Happy Taco joint on Park Place shuttered for good after a DOH shutdown.

    Italian restaurant Arthur on Smith starts serving lunch tomorrow in Carroll Gardens. And in Cobble Hill, the Ethiopian restaurant planned for the old Quercy space on Court Street opened up yesterday for dinner. A burger joint – Mark’s Gourmet Burgers – will open this summer on the corner of Waverly and Myrtle Avenue (the former Bechamel space) in Clinton Hill. Also on Myrtle, we noticed that Wicked Good Franks, which opened one year ago, closed up shop. Racked checks out the new Brooklyn Industries in Greenpoint on Manhattan Avenue. The store is made almost entirely of recycled materials – even the electricity is totally generated from wind power. And in Bed Stuy, Scratchbread Bakery now serves breakfast.
