When we did the piece on Brooklyn roast beef heroes a year ago, we didn't expect to find a place better than Clemente's. But we hadn't been to Rocky's. It, too, is a meat market that makes heros at the back of the store. We came upon Rocky himself on a Saturday afternoon carving up a fresh roast beef of smallish circumference, and we asked him to fix a hero in his usual manner. The beef;sliced thick, barely rimmed with fat, and tender as all get-out-was piled on a good Italian baguette, then slices of American cheese were layered thereon. Finally, salt and a mist of finely ground black pepper were blown over the sandwich. Spectacular!
