Like the idea of serving dinner in the kitchen instead of in a dining nook or (confess!) the couch? Then take notes on this edition of the Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open house listings StreetEasy users saved to their open-house planners more often than any others this weekend.

The eat-in kitchen in this $749k two-bedroom, one-bath duplex co-op on President Street (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues) in Park Slope has been renovated and features stone countertops, a farmhouse sink, a glass backsplash and pantry space.In addition to central a/c and the original brick fireplace, French patio doors lead to a private 578-square-foot, south-facing garden with Japanese maples, azaleas and more. The lower level has a rec room that’s currently being used as an additional bedroom, a new box staircase connects the two levels and there’s private storage in the basement. 

On the Upper East Side, you’ll find a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo with an eat-in kitchen on the market for $1.15m. The windowed kitchen is also equipped with stainless steel appliances. Not only can you eat dinner in your kitchen, but you can also do laundry in your own apartment thanks to a full-size W/D. Plus, the apartment features a balcony. The Evans Tower Condominium, located on 84th Street and Third Avenue, has a 24-hour concierge, a health club, community room and parking in the building. It also allows pied-a-terres and is zoned for PS 290.

Back in Park Slope on Eighth Street and Eighth Avenue, you can eat in your modern kitchen (complete with a W/D), located in a $519k two-bedroom, one-bath corner unit condo. Carrying costs and monthly taxes are relatively low at $441 and $248, respectively. It’s around the corner from the subway and down the block from Prospect Park. The one-flight walk-up is zoned for PS 107.
