Brooklyn’s own restaurant week returns April 3 through April 10, when eateries throughout the borough will offer three-course dinners for $20.06. Although a list of all the participants was not available at press time, Park Slope’s Scottadito Osteria Toscana offered the press a sneak peek - and taste - of its new, all-organic menu earlier this month.

Chef and co-owner Paolo Nozzoli, who grew up outside of Florence, is so committed to organic foods that he grinds Scottadito’s sausages from antibiotic - and hormone-free meats - and cures the meats in-house. The attention to detail pays off in his "Salsiccia di Maiale," an addictive appetizer of grilled wedges of pork sausage, which have a remarkably light, not-salty flavor that contrasts pleasantly with its sprightly bed of greens.

Also on Scottadito’s "Dine In Brooklyn" menu are the "Gnochetti di Barbabietole" (beet gnocchi, pictured).

For reservations at Scottadito Osteria Toscana (788A Union St. between Sixth and Seventh avenues), call (718) 636-4100. The restaurant accepts cash only. For a list of "Dine In Brooklyn 2006" restaurants, visit the Web site,
