I used to get my prescriptions filled at a chain drug store, but now go only to Ansonia Chemist, a small, family-run pharmacy on Seventh Avenue in Park Slope. The people who work there are really friendly and helpful, and I've never had to wait more than 24 hours to get a prescription filled. They also sell a lot of organic products, as well as the usual range of good every pharmacy sells.
The White Horse tavern is most famous as the bar where Welsh writer Dylan Thomas drank himself to death (at least that's what legend says). One room is like a shrine to him, with portraits, pictures of his home, etc.
The menu is fairly standard bar food - good burgers and sandwiches at reasonable (especially for the Village) prices. The choices of beer are also standard. The back rooms are fairly quiet.
I go to Manatus about once a month to meet friends for breakfast. It's always good -- not great, but fine. It's never particularly busy early morning, although apparently late at night it gets packed. Service is always fine and friendly. My main gripe is that the bathrooms never seem super clean.
Bogota, named for the capital of Colombia, specializes in Colombian food, but also other Latin dishes. Very big menu, with something for everyone. Plantain chips are excellent. Also known for its cocktails, which are really good. It can get crowded and noisy, but not unbearably so.
Alchemy is great for brunch--haven't tried it for anything else. Good choices--lots of eggs, but also non-egg dishes. Bloody Mary's are good, too.
There's a garden out back, which is nice in the summer - but be sure to get a spot in the shade on a hot day or it can be unbearably hot.
Inside is cozy. Good for groups from two to eight.
My kids have been going to Dr. King since their first dental appointments - the older one just aged out. He's taken good care of them, and made good recommendations when one needed orthodontia. Dr. King is a stand-up comedian in his "other life," and incorporates a certain amount of entertainment in his office, which helps make the experience fun for kids.
The only thing I don't like is the noisy waiting room - the video games keep the kids entertained, but the sound can grate on adults.
Overall, highly recommended.
Dr. Ronald Schwalb was recommended by my son's pediatric dentist and has proved a good choice. He is thorough without being pushy, and was happy to go the least aggressive treatment route. His fee is lower than many NYC orthodontists, but his care as good or better than others. There is generally no wait. I definitely recommend him.
Dr Zelaya's busy office has provided good care for my son -- and based on the always-full waiting room, to many others in Park Slope/Windsor Terrace. The two-doctor practice, although busy, doesn't seem rushed. The main drawback is long waits - up to 45 minutes seems standard. Takes insurance.
J & R Television and Air Conditioning in Park Slope is an old-fashioned store, with more personal attention than you might get at the big box stores. They will match (or close to match) other stores' prices. If they don't have something in stock, they'll get it for you.
This is easily the worst Indian food I've ever had. For the same price as excellent buffet lunches in mid-town, this place had hardly palatable dishes on offer in its buffet. The atmosphere was non-existent, staff weren't friendly and the overall experience was not enjoyable. I can eat most things, but this was hard to swallow.
