Though only nine Brooklyn restaurants made it into this summer’s NYC Restaurant Week, a group of local organizations have joined forces to defend our borough’s reputation as a foodie destination. Treat yourself to a top-notch meal sans the schlep into the city during the second-annual Dine in Park Slope. The fun starts this Monday, Aug. 19, and runs through Aug. 30, with more than 50 Park Slope eateries and bars offering prix-fixe menus, discounts and other specials. From a $29.99 three-course dinner at Blue Ribbon Brasserie Brooklyn to a free bottle of wine at Wild with the purchase of two appetizers and entrees, your options runneth over. It’s the perfect way to spice up the dog days of summer, no sweaty subway ride into Manhattan required.
