Thistle Hill, the New Restaurant From NOFX's Fat Mike, Says Hello to Park Slope
New signage up at Thistle Hill, the much anticipated bar and restaurant from NOFX's Fat Mike and a consortium of others, including 'inoteca's David Massoni and Niagara Bar's John Bush. When last we checked in, the spot, which is located in the former Olive Vine location at 15th Street and 7th Avenue, promised "new American cuisine in a comfortable, laidback setting"; now we look to be getting "European- and Mediterranean-influenced cooking," plus single-malt whiskey bottled right here in New York State. Best is how they describe the most famous member of their ownership group to the parents and innocent children of the surrounding neighborhood: "Mike 'Fat Mike' Burkett, a member of the seminal punk band NOFX." Urban Dictionary, it turns out, sort of agrees. Cash or credit; early April is the new opening date, moved back from March. Who's coming with?
