The folks behind Park Slope’s Mediterranean-infused New American hotspot Tempo knew they had enough of a good thing going that they could expand their concept from high-end sit-down cuisine to a mass-market café. And it worked. At this offshoot, they’ve done so without losing any freshness, flavor, or fun. The retro-chic space is all chrome and glass, with plastic orange chairs and orange highlights; a corner patio overlooks bustling Seventh Avenue and tree-lined Third Avenue, too. As to the menu, you’ll find ultra-thick soups and broths, pre-made salads, and daily lasagnas. But it’s the made-to order designer sandwiches that draw the crowds. Sandwiches range in style from richly Old World (muffuletta, Cuban) to haute diner (chicken with cilantro pesto, meatloaf on a bun with bacon and crispy onions). This is not a place to skip dessert either. Cookies, cupcakes, and brownies are almost good enough to have you reconsidering whether you want the absurdly creamy gelato. Almost but not quite.
