A key part of the dining renaissance on Brooklyn’s Fifth Avenue, the Stone Park Café opened in 2004.Frank Bruni, writing in The New York Times a year later, waxed poetic about its appetizer of roasted marrow bones, describing it as essential to a menu “that is sagely balanced between curiosity-piquing surprises and consoling favorites, one that establishes a personality of sophisticated robustness while accommodating many predilections and moods.” It appears that since Bruni dined there, the marrow seems to have migrated to a taco with scallops, avocado, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime. I don’t know about you, but my curiosity is piqued. My hunger, too. (324 Fifth Ave., at 3rd St., Brooklyn. 718-369-0082.)
