At this point I think that Stone Park Cafe is the best restaurant in Park Slope. I’ve had three great meals there now, while I had one mediocre meal at the restaurant most people consider the best in the Slope, Al Di La. And to all of you thinking that I can’t judge based on just one meal, consider this: my meal at Al Di La was so thoroughly disappointing that I don’t really want to go back. On the other hand, I want to go back to Stone Park Cafe again, and again, and again.
On my most recent visit I brought my parents there for lunch, a time of day I hadn’t experienced at Stone Park Cafe before. My dad got the steak sandwich and my mom got the chicken paillard (minus the bacon), both deemed excellent. I got the brioche french toast, which was also great — flavorful but not too sweet, to make room for the warm berry compote served along with it. No syrup needed. We did have to wait a lot longer for everything than seemed normal, but when the food came out it was good enough to make us forgive them the delay.
