Park Slope’s favorite organic restaurant has changed owners, but its mission is intact.

Organic Heights underwent a metamorphosis over the recent holiday, re-opening on Jan. 2 as Sun In Bloom with Amy Follette, a yoga instructor at Bikram Yoga Park Slope, and chef Eric Levinson in charge.

Follette originally wanted to open in Manhattan, but became convinced that Brooklyn is the place to be.

“There’s nothing like [Sun in Bloom] in Brooklyn,” said Follette (pictured).

Levinson promises more than just an organic eatery, but a “living foods menu.”

“For example, I make my hummus with sprouted almonds, sprouted sunflower seeds, and zucchini,” he said.

The menu certainly is playful, with a sunflower-and-cabbage veggie patty known as the “Bloom Burger” (mayoral pun intended). And, of course, you can “create your own miso” or enjoy an “inspiratio­nal macro journey bowl.”

It’s a journey as near as Bergen Street.

Sun In Bloom Café [460 Bergen St. between Fifth and Flatbush avenues in Park Slope, (718) 622-4303].

Just ate the soy and oat protein pastrami - it was so fab.
And the wheat gluten based fake-steak is also great.
It's true, the sun also rises!

Nourished & SO ENJOYED green drink, meal, & dessert
- Started w/ delicious & healthy "straight-up greens" made w/ kale . . . that my joints need to bend with less / no pain (also know oxygenating / prevent & treat disease)
- Next the Western Burrito (sunflower "meat" w/salsa, avocado, cabbage, zucchini & sprouts) - I had mine wrapped in collard to get the extra greens, though burrito is Ezekiel, sprouted / flourless
- Treated myself to the most awesome, yummiest, most heavenly cookie sandwich made from coconut oil, coconut flakes, chocolate chips, cane syrup, gluten free flour, & baking soda

I would so go back there; actually want to live there; nice atmosphere & all the staff & customers nice & healthy & smiley & energetic
