Park Slope, Bastion of Food Power

The L Magazine just published their Brooklyn Food Power Rankings, and it looks like Park Slope did pretty well (if you were a competitive person, you might call it “winning”). The Slope racked up more mentions across the magazine’s 10 culinary categories than any other neighborhood with 7 recognized restaurants, beating out fellow top-scorers Williamsburg (6), Carroll Gardens and Prospect Heights (5 each), and Cobble Hill (4). (Red Hook, Gowanus, Crown Heights, Windsor Terrace, Greenpoint, Boerum Hill, Bed-Stuy, and Bushwick each got one; a bunch of delicious-but-maybe-less-cool neighborhoods got mysteriously ignored.)
By category, then:

|BBQ||Fort Reno‘s St. Louis-style Ribs (669 Union St)|

Do you agree with the winners? And more importantly: do you agree with what’s missing? Is there really no pizza to write home about in Park Slope? Where do you go for a good salad around here?
