Cititour Review:
Tempo Presto is an off-shoot of Tempo, a popular Mediterranean spot in Park Slope. It is here where you can get a taste of chef Michael Fiore's cooking even if you're not looking for an entire meal. At Tempo Presto you'll find hot and cold sandwiches, salads, snacks and treats.

Sandwich combinations include grilled portobello & sun-dried tomato, goat cheese and arugula on a baguette ($5.95), or something they call "Thanksgiving Day," roasted turkey, pecan bread stuffing with cranberry sauce and mayo ($7.25), and then there's the "Presto Presley," peanut butter, banana and honey served on a grilled pullman ($4.95).

I went for the dry-rubbed roast beef, a healhy portion of tender roast beef, topped with cheddar, grilled Bermuda onions and Tempo's own steak sauce served on a baguette. Think high-octane Philly cheese steak. It was delicious, although it could have been a bit warmer.

Tempo Presto also sells home-made gelati and sorbetti. Their version of rocky road comes fully loaded and is guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth.
