I first reported back in November that a nail salon called Latoue would be coming to the long-vacant space last occupied by Chiles & Chocolate, at 92 Seventh Avenue between Berkeley and Union. The awning has gone up, and it looks like it should be opening relatively soon.
Directly across the street, another nail salon is slated to open in the space that was until recently home to an ill-fated Subway, and before that Leaf & Bean. Park Slope Stoop noticed that a sign announcing the impending opening has gone up in the window, but no more information (except for the fact that it's going to be a nail salon) is available.
The neighborhood is absolutely saturated with nail salons at this point, and even though Latoue looks like it'll be high-end, these places really add nothing to the overall culture of the area. Hey, at least we can say that we're living through a golden age of Park Slope nail salons!
