This sample sale has some bite!

At the third annual Park Slope Restaurant tour on Sept. 23, the hungry hordes will be able to taste free samples from more than 30 of the neighborhood’s top restaurants, wine shops and food stores — mostly on Seventh Avenue — and then decide where to eat for the night.

The Park Slope Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event seeks highlight the neighborhood’s rich array of eateries, as well as encourage residents to eat and buy locally.

“It’s a little enticement, and it’s good for business,” said Mitch Szpicek, president of the chamber.

Saeri Yoo Park, owner of Moim, an outstanding Korean restaurant on Garfield Place between Seventh and Eighth avenues, said the tour is good for Park Slope — and her business.

“A lot of people come in to check out the restaurant,” she said.

Park said she is still deciding what to offer up as a free morsel, adding that the restaurant is known for its authentic cuisine, like its kalbi, a delicately braised short rib.

After a savory sample, it’s only natural diners might crave sugar, and Sweet Melissa Patisserie on Seventh Avenue between First and Second streets will be offering tastes of its banana splits, milk shakes and old-fashioned sundaes to round out the flavorful tour.

Diners need only bring a healthy appetite, and can explore places at their leisure.

“Basically, you just come and you eat,” said Szpicek.
