Brooklyn food blogger Eat. Drink. Memory. has a unique request for readers: invest in a struggling restaurant. Delicious on the Slope (641 President Street, near Fourth Avenue) lost its chef-partner a few weeks ago and is now under the sole ownership of Luis Garcia, who previously managed several restaurants in Manhattan, including the Cub Room. “Delicious on the Slope is a nice neighborhood place run by a lovely man who has invested more than simply money and time in the business. It isn’t hip nor does it have a new-fangled menu with unusual food pairings. Garcia inherited a failed concept from the previous owners and he has struggled to recreate, to make something of his own,” the post says. “He is just one of the many dreamers who live and work in Brooklyn, who make this place we live [in] beautiful and hopeful. He is one of us. I wish I had the resources to help him. My wish is that someone who does will give this man some help. Foolishly, perhaps, I believe in angels.” Beyond patronage, should the neighborhood have a role in supporting local businesses?
