Were it located in the genteel wilds of Birchrunville, Chester County, say, or Malvern, even, green farmlands lapping at the doorstep, Osteria's poignant gesture to fresh and local might not be that much worth the noting. But for those who haven't had occasion to visit, let us set the scene: The casual sister to Marc Vetri's eponymous Vetri is just a handful of blocks north on Broad Street from Vine, though still south of Temple University, which is to say in a stretch of faded urbanity to which the noun revival cannot (yet)

Broccoli has become so popular that there are now whole cookbooks written on the subject. As a child of the 1950s, I was fed fresh broccoli rabe with olive oil and garlic by my mother, who was an excellent Italian cook. When we had "American" broccoli, it was from the freezer section. Today, when I cook broccoli, it is always fresh - whether it is broccoli rabe or the "American" kind. To prepare broccoli rabe or broccoli, I trim off and discard about 1-inch of the toughest part of the stem.

Some would argue that you don't mess with perfection. The South Philly roast pork sandwich with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone, for example. Or that Americanized Chinese staple, the egg roll. But Ben Byruch artfully combines the two at his ambitious South Street small-plate BYO, Sonam. For his "Italian egg rolls," Byruch shreds pork and broccoli rabe, layers in provolone, and adds roasted yellow peppers in an egg-roll wrapper. The rolls are deep-fried, cut on the bias, and served with a side of sun-dried sweet-chili sauce that balances the bitterness of the broccoli rabe and tempers the provolone.

My favorite way to prepare clams is to steam them. In this recipe, I added broccoli rabe, which absorbs some of the clam liquor as it cooks.

Look out Tony Luke's: You've got competition uptown. Her name: Helen Morganstein. Morganstein works the counter at The Carousel Shop on 3rd Street between Walnut and Locust, a small, 26-year-old ice cream shop and luncheonette. She seems like a sweet lady to the kids ordering ice cream cones and the neighbors who drop by to chat, but Morganstein is fierce when she's in the kitchen. Her customers keep asking for her roast pork and broccoli rabe sandwich, a recipe that requires a day's worth of roasting and some serious pork-pulling.

Pasta that boils to al dente in 10 or 12 minutes is always a boon to cooks in a hurry. Pasta that doesn't need to be boiled at all is even more of a busy-day helper. In the recipe that follows, thin spaghetti, called spaghettini, is broken into two-inch lengths and added to stir-fried broccoli rabe with a small amount of chicken broth. The pasta cooks with the broccoli in about 10 to 12 minutes. And no, the result is neither starchy nor mushy. Broccoli rabe is the distinctive, thin-stemmed broccoli beloved by Italian cooks for its interesting, slightly bitter flavor.

Yo, Chefs! Recently, I had dinner with my husband at Phil's Tavern in Broad Axe, near Blue Bell. It was the first time we've ever eaten there, and we were pleasantly surprised with the menu. I ordered one of the specials, which was delicious penne pasta with chicken tenders, broccoli rabe, tomatoes and white beans. This would be a great entree to prepare at home for guests. I would really love to have the recipe for this dish. Can you help? Paula D. Fan Lafayette Hill Dear Paula, Phil's owner, Charles Compagnucci, earned his restaurant stripes during a 10-year stint as general manager of the legendary South Philly stalwart, Pat's Steaks.

"When I was a kid" reminisces Mike Anastasio, owner of Anastasio Produce in South Philadelphia, "broccoli rabe was strictly Italian. No one else bought it. Portobello mushrooms? You had to go to Italy for them. " Not so anymore. Broccoli rabe (also known as rapini or Chinese flowering cabbage) originated in Asia and proliferated in the Mediterranean region. Now crates of the leafy vegetable from California and Mexico are piled up in city and suburban markets. And outsize Portobello mushrooms, 6 inches or more in diameter, are grown on our doorstep in Kennett Square.

We all know that saturated fats clog our arteries and that nitrates are not supposed to be good for us, yet studies show that we continue to consume huge quantities of French fries and hot dogs. On the other hand, foods such as broccoli - which other studies indicate are beneficial - do not seem to get the same respect. Even our president has stated his preference for cholesterol-glazed pork rinds over broccoli. Recent research at Johns Hopkins University has identified compounds in the vegetable that seem to lower the incidence of intestinal cancer.

If there's one thing we know at the Daily News, it's pizza. Specifically, free pizza. So we tossed a couple pies on the ol' expense account to see what Joe Stanfa is serving up at his new - and rather affordable - restaurant in Grays Ferry. Our critics, who were guaranteed anonymity, gave the pizza mixed reviews. But that doesn't mean we won't return to try the chicken cutlet with roasted peppers, broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. Reporter #1: "This pizza is like the button men of old, before wiseguys tried to become celebrities - solid but not flashy.

A savory pie is an easy one-dish entree, made even easier with a refrigerated pie crust. Any number of ingredients - fresh or leftovers - can be bound in an egg-based filling. Prepare a soup, salad or vegetable side dish during the "walk-away" baking time. Double the recipe and stash the extra, once cooled, in the freezer for a time-crunched future meal. (Thaw the baked tart in the refrigerator and reheat at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Or microwave it on low for 3 minutes to thaw, then 3 minutes on high to reheat.
