A while back, The Brooklyn Paper bemoaned a spate of restaurant closings on Park Slope’s Seventh Avenue, due largely to higher rents and the trendiness of cheaper Fifth Avenue. It looks like Sette Enoteca e Cucina, a restaurant that takes its name from the avenue and opened in 2005 with Amanda Freitag at the helm, could join the departed. A broker sent us a listing for an unnamed corner Park Slope restaurant with year-round outdoor seating, twelve- to fourteen-foot ceilings, and a wood-burning oven from Italy. Although the photo (which we can’t reproduce) makes us think it’s Sette, owner Giovanni Tafuri says business is still booming and he isn’t selling, although if we sent him someone with a big bag of cash, he’d talk with him. Any takers?
Got a bag of cash?
