Brancaccio's Food Shop (Windsor Terrace / Kensington)

This lovely little shop is on Fort Hamilton Parkway just a couple of blocks from the F train. Stumbled upon it on Sunday... it's mainly prepared food and baked goods to take out, but there is also a small assortment of Italian groceries (pastas, biscuits, sodas, etc.)

Everything is made daily and there seemed to be 4-5 meat/fish dishes, the same number of pastas / risottos, and maybe 6-7 vegetable dishes. Everything is sold by the pound. My wife and I decided to pick up something for dinner, and here's what we got for $25:

Hanger steak in red wine / rosemary sauce
Glazed pork chops
Truffle mashed potatoes
Orechiette in tomato sauce
Brussels sprouts
Roasted tomatoes

Everything was really good. I don't know if I'd go there every night of the week, but for the same amount we would have spent on delivery we got a really enjoyable meal, one that felt more homemade and crafted that your typical take out. A great option if you live nearby and want to pick up something on the way home from work.
