Dale Talde Planning Park Slope Takeover

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]
