Best Upscale Broccoli Rabe (2008)

Grappa Cafe

The clean-lined dining room of GRAPPA CAFE is the perfect nook in which to savor a well-prepared broccoli rabe that is done to a turn with just enough sweet, plump chunks of sautéed garlic to highlight the slight bitterness of the veggie. This is a dish that manages to maintain a foot in both culinary camps—retaining its hearty authenticity yet yielding to the upwardly mobile trends that are transforming Brooklyn Heights.
