It may not be the most talked about (or real) award - NYC Street Corner With The Best Two Walk-In-Only Restaurants - but a strong new contender is 5th Ave and Carroll St in Park Slope. Al Di La has been there for a while, serving some of the best Italian food in the city, and now there’s also Haenyeo, a great Korean spot right across the street. The menu has traditional options like kimchi pancakes and bibimbap, as well as more fusion-y dishes like rice cake fundido (a must-order).The corner space, which has a small bar up front and dining room in the back, feels fancier than most others in the neighborhood, and is a good option for a nice date night or group dinner. If there’s a wait, grab a drink at Blueprint alongside all the people waiting for a table at Al Di La.
