Five reasons to visit Park Slope, Brooklyn

The food

 – this place has so much heart and soul. Every pasta dish is sensational. My go-to is the bolognese with gluten-free pasta, a glass of red wine, and the tiramisu. Far from regular, 
Café Regular
 is the greatest morning experience – you’ll feel like you’re in France with a cup of tea (or coffee) and a croissant. 

The bar

The Monro
 is a low-key British bar. I go there for the sausage roll when I’m feeling homesick. It’s also where I can find my husband when he’s not home.

The store

A beloved Park Slope bodega owner renamed his store 
The Bad Wife
 – but he insists that his spouse is anything but! Everything you need can be found here, it’s all about shopping local. 
 has a neighborly atmosphere and meticulously curated goods. The in-house cafe and backyard is a great place for sunshine and conversation. 

The thing to do

I’d recommend 
Prospect Park 
 farmer’s market and 
Brooklyn Botanical Garden

The culture

Go to 
Public Records
 for music, 
 for comedy shows, the 
Greenwood Cemetery
 for the Sophie Calle Installation and concerts in the catacombs, and the 
Brooklyn Museum

Wait, what about a hotel?

There are no hotels I’d recommend in Prospect Park itself, so check in to 
The New York EDITION, The Times Square EDITION
, or
