As reported here a few weeks ago, Burger Mexicano is ready for its closeup:
That's the old Meytex space on Flatbush. 545 to be exact.
Yes, it's true, we're getting TWO count them wine stores on Flatbush, one at the current Garden Deli across from Planet Fitness. The other will most likely take a space near Playkids.
And yes, LPT is becoming Mexican as well.
And now I hear a Japanese joint is opening on Rogers at the old funeral parlor, c/o neighborhood info-source Barbara Rogers, whose ancestors must have been friends with the Lefferts' given how up on things she is! (Though they were likely perpendicular friends, the Rogers' and the Lefferts', if the streets are any indication.)
Let the complaining before the place even opens begin!!
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
