As the restaurant’s name implies, Flatbush Farm’s menu leans heavily on local purveyors. Rancho Gordo heirloom beans, roasted peppers and chipotle-infused tomatoes dress up creamy polenta ($18), while Long Island duck steak ($28) comes with bacon-braised collard greens and duck-and-mushroom confit. Kids might be happiest with the bar menu—they can lap up warm artichoke dip ($8) with lavash crackers, and dip grilled cheese ($10) into tomato fennel soup. In the summer there’s no better perch than the intimate backyard.
