All “old timers” on these boards know how much I (& the Hubby) love Tempo. After trying out lots of different restaurants in the Park Slope / Prospect Heights area lately, Tempo still remains our strong favorite. It now seems, more than ever, to be the strong constant that delivers every time. Ahh, the food, the good service & renewed positive energy -and last but not least, the ever amazing wine list, that has new gems added to it, even though we weren’t even through the “old” selection. Every dinner we have had there lately has been so positive, so thoroughly enjoyable that we just keep wanting to go back.
I could write a long, detailed review (and will, later) but first I want to tell the most important thing:
In December, on Saturdays, Tempo donates 70% of your dinner checks to a charity called ModestNeeds.org. Check it out, it is quite impressive.
I love the idea; both the organization – and the fact that Tempo wants to participate. We have spoken to Robert and Michael and they are genuinely excited about ModestNeeds.org and about participating.
So, I know which restaurant we will eat in during December Saturdays. In addition to enjoying a wonderful meal, I can feel good about the fact that I am benefiting the needy.
