Tonio's Restaurant to Be Replaced by Dunkin' Donuts

 

                                                                            Brooklynian

It was first rumored back in June, but today we can officially confirm it: Tonio's Italian Restaurant, which closed that month after nearly 20 years in business, will be replaced by a Dunkin' Donuts.

I just hope that this doesn't affect business at old-school lunch counter Seventh Avenue Donuts, which is only a block south (between Eighth and Ninth), and sells some of the best donuts in the entire city, made fresh multiple times daily. Thankfully, these days nobody really buys donuts at Dunkin' Donuts anyway!

They closed!! I haven't been in a while but I loved this place. Man, that bums me out.

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGreg

Agree, they should just change the name to Dunkin Donuts coffee shop because I can't believe people actually buy those gross donuts at DD.

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterparkslopefoodie

Sad news.

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteronemorefoldedsunset

People do eat at DD everywhere, but I do agree that it would be an odd location for one. I think there'd be enough local support to not affect 7th Ave Donuts.

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJoey

There is already a DD on 5th Avenue and 9th Street and Park Slope still survives. Given that the other one on Flatbush closed last year and became Taro sushi, I think we can live with 2 DD's again.

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbk4life

Not an upgrade.

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEric McClure

I'm not excited by this at all and I do think it's a really weird location for it but that said, Tonio's was just plain awful. Like punchline awful.

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStoney Stomp

It's not a weird location at all. It will do gangbusters business from the hospital a block away. That's hundreds of employees a day looking for coffee. How could you think this is an odd location?

As for Tonio's, it was one of the worst restaurants in Park Slope so I'm not sure how this isn't an upgrade.

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbk4life

@bk4life
Oh it's not odd from a business standpoint - it makes a ton of sense for a lot of reasons and especially because of the hospital. You're spot on there. But from a neighborhood standpoint, there's just not much in the way of chain-type stores on that stretch of 7th Ave. It's the same reason that the location for Cheeburger Cheeburger was "weird."

From a hood perspective, that stretch of 7th is predominately small local businesses and if I'm being selfish, I just kind of like it that way. It's not that I'm opposed to chain-type stores either. I have no issue with the D&D on 5th Avenue and 9th as it makes a bit more sense on that stretch with the NYSC, Chase and Rite Aid right there as well.

And yeah....totally agree about Tonio's. I mean it was just god awful

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStoney Stomp

I've always thought that the few blocks around the hospital would be better served by chains, since so many park slope business people have failed miserably providing services to them (see park slope eatery). Le Bagel delight is an exception as they seem to cater to the hospital crowd well. This area of 7th is fast becoming chains though, I no longer see it as mom and pop. It now has 5 guys, Bank of America, Cohen's Optical, Radio Shack, Subway and now a DD. Makes sense. it's too bad some smart business people haven't been able to come to this stretch of 7th and carve out a market for themselves for the built in customer base of the hospital. How about a make your own salad place like Chop Chop would do incredible business around here with health conscious hospital staff. Yes, another small chain, but still. I see no reason why there are any empty storefronts within 3 blocks of the hospital (see: grecian corner).

October 18, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbk4life

It is going to bring more litter and obesity.

October 19, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChicken Underwear

Woot! Very excited for DD. I love their coffee.

October 19, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJim

That sucks. I disliked Tonio's but DD is a blight to the street. :-(

October 19, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDave

"Health conscious hospital staff"? Have you seen some of these people? I've seen healthier specimens in an OTB.

October 19, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLord Haw Haw

It SUCKS. It's just further homogenizing that stretch of 7th Ave, which as bk4life says is full of chains. Thus to me there are plenty of places already to serve the hospital crowd - Purity, Five Guys, Subway, Starbucks in B&N, not to mention 7th Ave Donuts, which technically serves the same thing as Dunkin' Donuts will but much better - and simply not enough to serve the people who actually live around there. On that note, there have been a few "smart businesses" who have come in to that stretch but not to serve the hospital crowd per se, to serve THE RESIDENTS! Namely, Zito's and Crespella, which have brought personality to the hood with great food/drink, design and service. The reason I (and I'd assume many of us) moved to Brooklyn and Park Slope is that it feels like a neighborhood, not a friggin strip mall. It's going to feel less and less like that the more chains we get.

Frankly, it feels like Flatbush and 7th Ave are going in opposite directions (minus the new Five Guys on Flatbush), with Flatbush getting the cool neighborhoody places and 7th getting the lame chains. Sigh. Can't wait for Cinnabon to go into the old Sette spot (kidding. maybe.).

October 19, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDeirdre

Grecian Corner is in foreclosure. Owner walked away after a few lawsuits and just plain bad food. Hopefully a new owner with a different look at food [who needs another Greek diner on a corner when 7th Avenue has so many?] will come by soon.

October 19, 2011 | Unregistered Commenter5w30

I think the problem on 7th ave. is high rent. It's too high in my opinion. Renting 1500sq commercial space on 7th will be close to 15k a month compare to less than 10k on 5th or other part of Park slope. For small business man, it's all about managing the risk and It's hard to be creative when there is too much risk to take. that's why they choose to go with little safer bet which is chain stores. So unless 7th ave. rent goes down, we will see more chain stores on 7th in my opinion.
