Top Chef Dale Talde’s namesake Talde restaurant has scarcely been peddling its Asian fusion for a month, but we already have word that Talde and his partners have expansion plans. Park Slope Patch has it that the toque and his co-restaurateurs (John Bush and David Massoni of Thistle Hill Tavern) are taking over the former Aunt Suzie’s space on Fifth Avenue between Carroll Street and Garfield Place. They’re planning a somewhat different concept than Talde — which has reportedly been popping off since opening — and are vague on details. One way or another, these guys are out to spruce up the Slope; expect a spring opening for this one. [Park Slope Patch]
