For those in the Slope (and just about everyone else in NYC), it will come as no surprise that Talde is making a name for itself on a number of 2012 Best Of lists. Here’s what Brooklyn and New York Magazines had to say:

Largely considered to be one of the best restaurants in Brooklyn, it’s hard to believe this Park Slope pan-Asian joint opened barely a year ago. Their exemplary quartered-bird has swept all other southern-fried versions by the wayside — fried crisp in rice flour and drizzled with a zesty mix of yogurt and kimchee (shown above).

Food-obsessed Brooklynites used to have to take the L train into Manhattan to get their fix of the latest Asian-fusion or tapas craze. But these days, it’s jaded Manhattanites who are making the long slog out to Talde, in Park Slope, to sample ingenious fusion comfort-food creations like pretzel pork-and-chive pot stickers, smoked char siu pork shoulder, and deliciously sticky, chile-infused Kung Pao chicken wings, which the former Jean-Georges acolyte Dale Talde serves with soothing pots of buttermilk dipping sauce.

What do you think about the offerings at our local hot spot? Are the pretzel dumplings and Korean fried chicken as good as the foodies say?
