Last weekend, as promised, the owners of Manhattan Avenue bars Matchless and No Name reopened the Park Luncheonette off of McCarren Park. You can now stop by in the morning for espresso drinks and maybe some banana bread, or in the evening for beer, wine or cocktails at the candlelit bar (there’s also root beer on tap). The pizza menu didn’t debut this past week as hoped, but we’re told slices should be flying out of the takeout window by next week. We spoke to Nicholas Schneider, who’s heading the pizza operation, and his partner Ted Nugent of No Name and Matchless. Play the audio slideshow to check out the luncheonette’s new look and hear more about what to expect from the kitchen.
