A friend has asked me for some suggestions of "a cool bar or restaurant in Park Slope where a friend and I can go for dinner/drinks" because I live in the neighborhood. Now, we are both moms and sadly, I am so out of the loop these days that I really don't know what's really terrific these days. I think there's a nice wine bar on 5th (Total Wine Bar?) but I've never been so I can't vouch for it. But since she and I both rarely get out, I can guess that what she's looking for is a place with a bar that knows how to make good drinks or has good wines by the glass and also has good food. Nice lighting would be a plus. Well, maybe that's just me. But it will be good to know when I finally get out. So I'm sorry to be so general, but there are so many new places in Park Slope that I don't know where to start. Any and all suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!
