Back in December of last year, the 36-year-old Park Slope Restaurant, on Fifth between 11th and 12th, shuttered and merged with the owner's other restaurant, Green Kitchen, located a few doors down. The space remained vacant until earlier this month, when workers began to gut the space in preparation for the next tenant.
While walking by this morning, I asked a worker what would be moving into the space. "A restaurant," he said, coyly. He wouldn't provide any more details, but a visit to Green Kitchen confirmed that it would indeed be a restaurant, "either Italian or French," according to the employee I spoke with.
