There are 58 restaurants on Park Slope's 5th Avenue...

...between Flatbush Ave. and 12th St.

To the best of my knowledge only 16 of the 58 have been open since the 1990s (four of these are pizzerias).

In five and a half years Slopers have gone from being chow-deprived to being aswim in chow. With respect to the notion "too much is never enough" the question now is, what else do we need? What cuisines are poorly represented in the Slope or missing from the area altogether?

It's also rather interesting how few failures 5th Ave. has seen recently. Of the places that have opened since the Al di la revolution, I can only think of Vaux, Mexican Sandwich Shop, Bibi's, Surreal Café, and Café Fuerte, and I doubt very many people miss those last three.

For the record, these are the 16 places I believe have been open since the 1990s:

El Viejo Yayo; V/M Pizzatown; Calexico; 200 Fifth; Fifth Ave. Pizzeria; Mezcal's (the older one); 5th Ave. Bageltique & Café; Aunt Suzie; Al di la; Coco Roco; Fifth Ave. Café; JFK Fried Chicken; Uncle Liao's; Aniello Pizza; Joe's Pizza; Tacos Nuevo Mexico
