Dale Talde Surprises Everyone by Shutting Down His Beloved Pork Slope Eatery

Dale Talde's beloved Pork Slope restaurant is shutting down. According to Grub Street, Dale and his business partners David Massoni and John Bush have already quietly closed the Brooklyn hangout, which has earned countless props for its burger and for Dale's genius spins on bar food. Meanwhile, another restaurant owned by Dale and the same group (Three Kings Restaurant Group), Brooklyn's Thistle Hill Tavern, is also shuttering. The partners had opened it in 2010 before Dale came onboard.

In a statement, the team said they were “extremely thankful” to their customers. The Top Chef alum confirmed the news by retweeting reports about the closures. The only remaining Dale Talde restaurant in Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood will be Dale's self-titled Talde.

Still, there are big things on the horizon for the team—in Manhattan as well as in Brooklyn. They're planning to open Atlantic Social Club near the Barclays Center stadium in the near future, as well as several spots in downtown Manhattan, including Massoni in the Arlo Nomad hotel in Chinatown and Rice & Gold in Hotel 50 Bowery nearby.
