Way back in July, Grub Street spoke with Top Chef's Dale Talde about the Asian-American restaurant he was planning for Park Slope, and now, at last, Talde is set to open on Sunday. As promised, there's fried chicken a Korean version that riffs Mediterranean with yogurt-kimchee, grapes, and mint. The toque's aim to draw from multiple Asian cultures and from Brooklyn is evident in dishes like pretzel pork-and-chive dumplings and the abundant use of market veggies, including kale. It's a pretty all-over-the-place lineup, in fact just the sort of thing to spice up sedate Park Slope. See the menu below and taste it for yourself come Sunday.
