Seems August is a busy month for bi'ness on the Flabenue. The sign for "Cinnamon Girl" is up btw Midwood and Rutland, suggesting a not-too-long wait for its Neil Young memorabilia, and/or, as I recall from Mrs. Q's conversation with the owner, take-out goods and sundry essentials.
Then there's that drinky-eaty place on Beekman, truly a revolutionary concept given Beekman's sometime's checkered past. "Erv's" is what my spies say it'll be, and owners Rob and Cate (Kate?) are looking for a roughly Labor Day opening. It'll be a cafe and drinks spot.
Btw, by "spies" I mean pal to the Q Mark S. who also writes lovely pieces on local eateries and will undoubtedly be sampling the wares.
The Q welcomes our new neighbors and wishes them all the success in the world. And if THAT doesn't earn me some free foodstuffs, what will?
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.
