If you need yet another example of just how hot Brooklyn's restaurant scene has become, look no further than Flatbush Farm in Prospect Heights. The closest you'll actualy come to a farm is the antique pitch fork and farm tools above the bar. Instead, what you'll find is a rather sheik space with tall ceilings, colored in stark black and whites with crystal chandeliers and candle lit tables that give off a warm glow. Another thing that catches your attention, aside from the Old English on the menu, is the quirkness of the place, including a calling card with, what appears to be, an interracial Civil War-era couple passing a revolver. On the flip-side is a pregnant woman jabbing a carrot with a fork. That type boldness also extends to flavors on chef Eric Lind's menu. Flavorful braised tuna belly ($10) is accented by baby arugala and white beans. Sauteed spatzle ($11) carries an earthy tone from a mushroom ragout. And a beet salad ($9) gets its bite from crisp granny smith apples, escarole and a walnut vinaigrette. There wasn't a clunker in the bunch. Between appetizers and entrees there's just enough time to enjoy a perfectly chilled pear martini ($8) made with vodka, Limoncello and Doc's pear cider (Our table probably enjoyed one too many courtesy of Charlie the bartender). A common thread among dishes is the use of root vegetables. You'll find them alongside slices of perfectly rare roast duck breast ($16), flavored with orange and rosemary floating atop some creamy grits. The French Dip ($14) was another winner; beef brisket on a bagette with horseradish creme fraiche, hand-cut fries and beef jus for dipping. The only dish that proved a tad too strong for our liking was the smoked salmon cakes ($18) served with a celery root puree. Also on the menu you'll find braised lamb with bubble and squeak ($19), and pork goulash ($18). I'm not really much of a dessert person. But even I found myself digging into a spicy piece of walnut cake. Flatbush Farm is a breath of fresh air. Reasonably priced. No attitude. And food that's right on the mark!
