“Despite the Disney-style atmosphere, Inakaya serves an array of dutifully authentic Japanese drinking dishes,” Adam Platt writes in the magazine this week. For something a little less frantic, Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld highlight the new food vendors at the Brooklyn Flea, which opens on April 18. Farther afield in Brooklyn is Brighton Beach, and our Everything Guide will point you to the finest “tasty, meat-filled starches.” If you’d prefer fruit, look to the Five Leaves (Pineapple) Burger: “It’s enough to send purists (of both pineapple and burger persuasions) into fits of apoplexy,” write Rob and Robin. The Robs also bring the carborific news of an expanded bread program at Payard Pâtisserie & Bistro.
