POLL: What Should Replace the Old 'Tasty Crepes'?

Take our poll and let your opinion be heard.

After Haagen-Daaz closed on the corner of Merrick Road and Park Avenue after ten years at that location, Tasty Crepes replaced it. Unfortunately, Tasty Crepes didn't fare well and quickly went out of business.

The space is fairly small, so it's limited as to what type of business could fill it. We want to know what you think should take its place. Take our poll and let us know!

If you have an idea that isn't listed in our poll, tell us in the comments section!

RVC doesn't need another clothing boutique. How about some kind of specialty/upscale bakery? Plenty of places in Park Slope operate out of smaller places then this one.
Linda Miller March 07, 2012 at 05:44 PM
What is Auntie Anne's? And I agree with Joyce - no more clothing boutiques! It's not really big enough for a bookstore. I have no ideas!
Anthony Bottan (Editor) March 07, 2012 at 05:47 PM
Auntie Anne's is a pretzel chain. They have one in the mall, and it's always packed so I included it in the poll!

The South Shore Pretzel Company would be good. They have a variety of fresh baked high quality pretzels and a variety of Pretzel Rolls (Laugenbrotchen).
Frank March 07, 2012 at 09:34 PM
Hell anything salty, fatty, and tasty that will satisfy all the drinkers spilling out of south park ave would be a home run. Maybe standing room only cuisine would work, how about: -Gray's Papaya with South Shore Pretzel fusion? Who doesn't like a good hot dog and a fresh pretzel? -A falafel joint like Falafel Hut in Montclair, NJ -A "Golden Crust" serving patties. -Super tiny Ruben's Empanadas -Fish and Chips Counter. You can serve all the deep fried treats that put Scotland on the map for heart disease. kinda like A Salt & Battery in the West Village.

Blergh, never been a fan of A Salt & Battery. Lived on Bank Street last year and only ate there two or three times. But wait, empanadas? Mmmmmmm....
EJ's son March 08, 2012 at 01:00 AM
Sweet Plaintains on N. Park makes good emapanadas. Give it a shot.
David cantor March 08, 2012 at 02:17 AM
bring back Gary's hamburgers a staple there in the 1960's
Anthony March 08, 2012 at 02:13 PM
We have Front Street just north of that location plus a new cupcake place just south of it. How many sweets are needed? Another bakery would be like adding another bar to the area
Frank March 08, 2012 at 02:58 PM
@ EJ. Those drunken chickens spilling onto South Park aren't going to risk crossing Sunrise for an Empanada.
Frank March 08, 2012 at 02:59 PM
isn't there a burger joint across the street?
Joyce March 08, 2012 at 05:23 PM
What about some type of national and international magazine/newspaper place? That also serves specialty coffees and baked goods?
Frank March 08, 2012 at 07:09 PM
with the advent of the Ipad, don't know many people that buy magazines. As for specialty coffees, you got the International Delight Cafe, which is great. i'm heading to Gray's Papaya on 6th ave now for the recession special: 2 dogs and a drink for $4.50. I think a gray's papaya will kill on that corner.
Joyce March 09, 2012 at 01:13 AM
that's true. Gray's Papaya could work.
Joyce March 09, 2012 at 01:14 AM
True..but there's more than one kind of bakery. A classy patisserie, open early in the morning and Sundays, would be nice. But, probably not in that spot.
Craig Lombardo March 09, 2012 at 02:21 AM
Not anymore. Gyro's now.
Craig Lombardo March 09, 2012 at 02:46 AM
Candy store, or specialty cupcakes or better yet - a classic 1950's styled milkshake shop. Bring back old school.
Griff March 09, 2012 at 06:17 AM
Gray's Papaya !!!!!
Joyce March 09, 2012 at 01:25 PM
Old-school candy store/milkshake shop would work well with the old-school ice cream store across the street. Cupcakes wouldn't work with GET BAKED down the road. Also, maybe an organic bakery and juice bar? Nice stop in place after being at the gym.
Frank March 09, 2012 at 03:17 PM
Then a slider joint would work too
Frank March 09, 2012 at 03:21 PM
went yesterday for late lunch. had two recession specials. If I was drinking... heavily, I probably would've gone for a third. Gray's papaya on that corner on s. Park Ave would be HOPPING on a Friday and Saturday!
Craig Lombardo March 09, 2012 at 03:22 PM
Cool. I didnt even know about Get Baked. Will have to check them out.
Frank March 09, 2012 at 03:27 PM
Another possibility is a yakitori hut that does a Izakaya menu. Basically BBQ teriyaki chicken on a stick, steamed buns, dumplings... good easy finger food. In Japan, especially in the Ginza district (big bar scene), they were everywhere! ..A drinker's favorite! If you mix a Gray's Papaya, with BBQ teriyaki Chicken on Stick, and a Soft Pretzel, that would be heaven! Good chow that's light on the wallet! Maybe i should open one up?
Ellen March 09, 2012 at 09:48 PM
I spent a small fortune on cupcakes at Get Baked one day and they were stale. maybe I got them on a bad day. They don't bake on premises but in their other store. I was thinking a place like Hale and Hearty. Soup, bread and salads- mostly to go but with a few little tables.
Joyce March 09, 2012 at 10:47 PM
Probably a bad day; I've had some tasty treats there.
Joyce March 09, 2012 at 11:53 PM
Sounds delicious!
Anna March 10, 2012 at 11:03 PM
an organic cafe!
Frank March 12, 2012 at 02:37 PM
@ anna, try kookaburra on n. village.
lynn solaris May 02, 2012 at 01:04 AM
I have been in a creperie in Huntington village, they make amazing crepes. i think they will do great in rockville center
