As many Brooklynites are aware, it’s that time of year again: A Taste of Fifth is nigh! The annual festival, which will feature forty of the best restaurants from Park Slope’s 5th Avenue, has been a massive hit in previous years, and this year’s lineup looks to be no different. As you’ll see below, some of BK’s best food and drink will be coming out and celebrating with a wide array of tasty treats any foodie would be remiss to pass up.
What’s more, this evening of fabulous food and drink is actually for a good cause! Proceeds from A Taste of Fifth will benefit 14 Brooklyn-based charities, including Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Good Shepherd Services, and the Brooklyn Dream Factory.
Park Slope has quite the pizzaiolo on their hands - Robert Patriarca opened Brooklyn Central in October 2012, where he fuses "Old World" and "New World" dishes. With a focus on Neapolitan pizza, "Old World" refers to the buffalo mozzarella imported from Italy with conventional toppings, while "New World" pizza incorporate fresh mozzarella made in Brooklyn. The pizzeria sources many of their ingredients locally, and by local we mean right down the street. Since Neapolitan pizzas seem to be on trend in New York City, it can be very difficult to know where to go to get a great slice. Even for Manhattanites, a trek to Brooklyn is worth a slice here.
Brooklyn Central is located at 289 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. 347-725-4891
