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.
