RW&B replacing FNBB in Park Slope?

BrookBoy | Oct 7, 2006 06:12 PM

My wife happened to walk by the Full Nose Big Body wine shop on Seventh Avenue in Park Slope this morning and came home to say that there is a sign there that now says Red White & Bubbly.

We certainly don't have anything against RW&B (outside of their high prices, at least in their store on Fifth Avenue), but we are sorry to see BNFB go. We were regular patrons when the original young couple who opened the store were proprietors. We found their successor, Pat, to be totally lacking in customer service skills, and even friendliness, so we quit spending our money there.

When the next owner purchased the store from Pat we sent him an email relating our history with the store and wishing him well. We never heard back so we decided not to bother (it's a bit of a walk for us, one which we were willing to make when the young couple owned the place but not since).

Now it appears that the place has changed hands again. Maybe the proprietor of RW&B will have more luck, or has more skill. It'll be interesing to see what he does with the place, especially since the original concept was for moderately priced wines.
