Manhattan-dwelling food lovers get on the subway and head out to the buddingly hip neighborhood of Bushwick for Roberta's, and it's worth trek. The menu, which is something like "Brooklyn Italian" with its emphasis on using very local ingredients (there's a garden on the roof!), changes regularly but expect duck-prosciutto pizza, goat-spiked pasta, and variations on the theme of snout-to-tail dining. And, of course, a supercool soundtrack that's music to any hipster's ears. Go in off-hours or the waits can be long. For a more elegant Roberta's experience, check out the adjacent offshoot, Blanca, which serves upscale fixed-price multicourse meals (reservations are necessary and hard to get).
