    Pavilion Theatre

    I always wondered where parents hid the Slope's young adults (did they just roll tykes downhill when they started to outgrow the baby carriages?) until hitting the Park Slope Pavilion on a Friday night. Maybe it's just me, but the adolescent... More on Pavilion Theatre »

    • Jonah Miller began mapping out plans for a restaurant when he was still a teenager. "Broadly speaking, I grew up in the city, and I knew from a very young age what I wanted to do," he says. "I started working in restaurants at 14." Twelve years later, the chef -- who has spent time behind the burners at Chanterelle, Gramercy Tavern, and Savoy -- is making good on that goal. Huertas (107 First Avenue), a pintxos bar and restaurant that channels northern Spain, will make its official debut on Tuesday.Miller's inspiration comes from a variety... More on Huertas »
