Concord Hill is a so-called neighborhood restaurant; but when Angelo Romano, a vet of Roberta's and The Pines, is behind the burners, you know it's going to attract diners from far afield. Romano's creative comfort food makes this a destination—and one that's easy to reach, since it's close to the Graham Avenue stop on the L train. The 40-seat space has a modern farmhouse feel with white-painted walls, pressed tin ceilings and plain wood tabletops; there's also a small bar at the back. The menu contains compelling choices like toast with radish, bacon and scallions; mushroom melt on rye with manchego cheese, celery root and roasted onions; and cod in lobster broth with rutabaga, leeks and grilled bread.
