What to Eat at Rosco’s Pizza, Now Serving Meatball Pies and Rice Balls on Franklin Avenue


The owners of Dram Shop and Güeros Brooklyn hired Jonathan Greenberg, who cooked at Paulie Gee's and Franny's, to reboot the sad sack and defunct corner parlor called a Slice of Brooklyn in Prospect Heights. The result, open now for a week, is a familiar old-school spot with some new touches: The meatballs adorning that large pie are made with grass-fed beef, and dough is made with organic flour. The kitchen also turns out eggplant parm heroes, fried calamari ($10), and a spaghetti and meatball plate. Expect small comforts like Italian ices, a few outdoor seats, and a selection of classic arcade games. Rosco's is aiming to be a neighborhood-friendly option, with a collect-ten-magnets-for-a-free-pizza deal, and also a $36 delivery special of one large pie with any topping, which comes with a 64-ounce growler of beer. See the menu below.
