Blanca: A tasting kitchen behind the popular restaurant Roberta'sCost: $180 for a 20-course tasting menu; drinks not includedLocation: 261 Moore St., Bushwick, BrooklynNoteworthy: This place sums up Brooklyn's culinary revolution.One of the hippest places in the hip neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn, is Roberta's, an unassuming pizzeria with some shipping containers in the side yard that are topped by herbs and vegetables used in the pizza and other foods. Behind Roberta's, and run by the same folks, is the 12-seat Blanca, an ultraexclusive place (only 12 diners a night, five days a week, feasting on a 20-course tasting menu) where the kitchen takes up more room than the seating. Eric Safyan describes his design as "a state-of-the-art kitchen and a casual and elegant dining space." It looks more akin to the set of America's Test Kitchen than a typical restaurant. Reservations are taken only one day a month for the prized spots at the counter.More info: Blanca
