Dine in Park Slope Returns With Over 40 Restaurants Participating

Dine In Park Slope, now in its third year running, holds a slightly heavier weight than usual. With restaurants, especially small, locally run restaurants, struggling to weather a pandemic, businesses need every bit of help they can get. 

Mark Caserta, the Executive Director of the Fifth Avenue Business Development District, says that any little bit helps. 

“It’s just another thing we can do to help. If someone’s looking at the website it might remind someone either of a place they had never tried, or that they loved and they hadn’t been to for a while, for obvious reasons. It might bring some business back, that’s the thinking behind the whole thing,” Caserta said.

Maya Taqueria is offering buy two, get one free taco. Ellie Plass, Bklyner.

Over 40 restaurants have signed up to participate, which is slightly down from last year’s count of just over 50. The BID wasn’t completely sure that the event would be able to take place this year, as at first sign-ups were coming in much more slowly than usual. 

“I think people were thinking through whether or not they wanted to try it, and they’ve been distracted trying to keep their businesses going, trying to follow all the rules,” Caserta added. 

Jonathan Bayer, who owns Sky Ice with his wife Sutheera Denprapa and is on the board of the BID, was one such business. 

Sip your free Thai Iced Tea on Sky Ice’s patio. Ellie Plass, Bklyner.

“The whole pandemic put a lot of undue stress on every human being alive, so there’s that,” he said, explaining why the restaurant had to rush with their decision on what to offer this year. Eventually, they landed on a free Thai Iced Tea or Coffee with entree orders. 

Bayer says that he anticipates this year to be an especially good one for the program. 

Outdoor seating at Bleachers, which is offering a free frozen drink with wings and fries purchase during happy hour. Ellie Plass, Bklyner.

“It usually takes a few years for these types of programs to get lifted off the ground. So, now that we’re in our third year, I’m expecting a little bit more participation or more awareness. On top of that, we certainly have a lot of people in the neighborhood who are generally concerned about small businesses on the Avenue and are looking for ways to support,” Bayer said. “Everybody is hurting, everybody is feeling this one way or another, so this is a way to save or get a little something for your support. It’s a win-win. 

The program is being put on by the Fifth Avenue and North Flatbush BIDS, as well as the Park Slope Chamber of Commerce. It’s also sponsored this year by Chow Now, a food delivery service that the BID likes as they don’t charge a percentage on orders, only a flat fee every month to restaurants.

Offerings include a free cheese plate with orders over $50 from Wolf and Deer, two sodas and two medium pizzas for $20 from Union Street Pizza, and BOGO chocolate chunk cookies from Buttermilk Bake Shop.

The BID hopes that Dine In Park Slope can be a cure to your quarantine fatigue. 

“A lot of people want to get out. They’re tired of cooking,” Caserta laughed.
