Where to eat alone in Park Slope

Have a bit of time to kill on a Friday night, solo, in Park Slope. Where should I eat? Don't want to spend too much $$ or feel like I'm taking up valuable real estate...

Loved Get Fresh in Park Slope!

Just had an unexpectedly wonderful meal at Get Fresh on 5th Ave in Park Slope. I had thought it was some sort of semi-takeout-but-you-have-to-cook-it-yourself place. Not any more!!

Fresh, beautifully and simply prepared food, great service, nice ambience. Some what like Craft in Manhattan, in terms of the way the food was prepared and plated, but not nearly so precious. And quite affordable. Although they are BYOB, Get Fresh will order any from a small recommended list of wines from the wine shop down the block and have it delivered! How's that for convenient AND cheap??

It doesn't seem like the place is ever crowded when i walk by, which I think is due to the confusion about it's prior life. I'd encourage anyone to give Get Fresh a try, all 6 of us (very differing eating personalites) at dinner loved it.

Any recommendations for a 40th Birthday Dinner, midweek, with a few friends, in Park Slope or Prospect Heights? Already in consideration: Al di la, Applewood, Stone Park Cafe, Sotto Voce, Blue Ribbon, Convivium to hear feedback, or new suggestions, esp in P Heights. Thanks!
