Chip Shop on the Market for $9,300/Month

Chip Shop, on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Sixth Street, is on the market for $9,300 per month. An "Available" sign has gone up in the front window, and an ad has gone up on Craigslist advertising the "Prime Park Slope Storefront."

"This great double wide corner space is in the heart of Park Slope right on 5th Ave," the ad, placed by Ideal Properties' Patrick Russell, reads. "The location cannot be beat and it is a great size as well. Call today to check it out." The rate is about average for the neighborhood these days.

Chip Shop has been a popular spot for those looking for something a little different since opening in 2001, and it's one of the few full-on British restaurants in the city. Their traditional British fare like fish and chips, shepherd's pie, and bangers and mash are undeniably tasty, and are also undeniably unhealthy, which certainly keeps plenty of people away. But it's also popular with younger couples, groups, and families with young children, and is a quirky, fun, and most importantly, unique restaurant in a neighborhood that certainly needs them.

Many thanks to readers for sending in the photo and listing link.

Very sad loss for the neighborhood. If they're billing it as a "double wide corner spot", does that mean Corner Burger is going too? Because Chip Shop by itself is certainly not wide (and not on the corner). They obviously used to be connected back when Chip Shop had the separate curry section. I wouldn't miss Corner Burger (though I've been very happy for them that they have lasted so long there in that incarnation - the owners tried so many other things there before succeeding), but I will be very sad to see Chip Shop go.

The Chip Shop's take-out counter is around the corner on the side-street. So that might allow calling it "double-wide" even without the Corner Burger. I get the Chip Shop's fried mac & cheese and the salad with granny smith apples, blue cheese, & walnuts. So it's tasty, and kind of a wash on the "healthy" aspect.

I will miss their 3 wheel car around the neighbourhood.

They had their moment. Then the chef went on national television and served a bunch of celebrity chefs food that fell on the floor. Probably wasn't good for business.

Also, it was B/B- quality fried food. How long were we expecting it to last?

Not to mention all the British expats hang out at Black Horse and don't go near them anymore

I was at the chip shop the first day they opened. Took my British girlfriend there on one of our first dates. Eventually married her and we kept on going. However, the food had gotten worse over the years and my wife does not like the place anymore. She will go in to buy some of the UK products they have for sale by the counter...but not order food from them. That said, I don't think the "double wide" refers to the burger place as well. If it did, it would be a steal and get rented right away. I wonder what the square footage of the place is.

I like their little 3 wheeled car. That episode of Top Gear was the funniest.
