Is Runner Up a permanent restaurant? A bakery’s outdoor-only pop-up that’s serving more impressive food on a Park Slope side street than most indoor restaurants? We don’t know exactly, and that’s part of why we love it - this place could never have existed before the pandemic. The popular bakery Winner is now running a pretty serious restaurant on the street outside its shop, serving things like rotisserie chicken, scallop crudo, little gem salad, and sardine toast (on their highly popular sourdough). They’re certainly not the first place in town to present any of these dishes, but each one was better than any we can remember having recently. There’s a fantastic wine list and helpful sommelier too.
