When it comes to restaurants and shops in Park Slope, sometimes we must say goodbye to old friends and hello to new ones:
Good bye to:
Artesana Home, the imported rug, furniture and jewelry store, has been a fixture on the corner of 2nd Street and Seventh Avenue in Park Slope for 11 years. Fare thee well.
Long Tan, the longtime Thai eatery on Fifth Avenue between Union and Berkeley is leaving its spot. Fare thee well.
Total Wine Bar on Fifth Avenue between St. Marks and Warren Street, seems to be totally gone. Fare thee well.
Paper xoxo, the card, stationery and specialty design shop is closed. Her online business is still OPEN.
Zana, the cafe/pastry shop right near the Seventh Avenue F train station on Seventh Avenue is gone, gone, gone. Fare thee well.
Taro Sushi on Flatbush Avenue at St. Marks Place is open and looking good. Welcome neighbor!
Naruto Rame on Fifth Avenue between 1st Street and Garfield Place is open and serving very tasty soup! Welcome neighbor!
An exspresso cafe is replacing Zana, the above-mentioned cafe/pastry shop near the F Train station. Welcome neighbor whoever you are!
