Park Slope restaurant al di la is about as beloved as a neighborhood restaurant can get. So we're guessing that more than a few people will be excited about Bar Corvo, a slender, good-looking restaurant from the same team, over on Washington Avenue. As a selfish Prospect Heightser, I have to say, they have impeccable taste in neighborhoods. And the gentle prices and back garden (expect outdoor seating closer to summer) are made a good deal more possible by scooting east of Park Slope's Fifth Avenue.
What you'll find on the menu is a roster of starters, pastas, and meats similar in style to al di la: simple but artful, nothing too fussy, but nothing dull either. Pastas range from semolina gnocchi to a squid ink chitarra, apps include a fritto misto plate of a good half-dozen vegetables and a sizable cauldron of fava e ciccoria.
Chef du cuisine Carla Martinez (who'll be in the kitchen with exec chef Anna Klinger; both came from al di la) showed us what they'll be serving. Check it out in the slideshow.
