What are the most worthwhile Brooklyn restaurant splurges?
Al Di La and Noodle Pudding are excellent places to go all out. Not exactly Convivio or Per Se, but pretty damn good. Noodle Pudding should NOT be discounted because of the sins of the past. Just try the risotto.

I don't go to any high end gourmet places in Brooklyn.
My favorite non-pizza places are:
Tripoli on Atlantic Ave for authentic Syrian food
Juniors for strawberry cheese pie, pastrami sammiches and egg creams
Brennan and Carr for roast beef sammiches, triple dipped with sauteed onions
Roll and Roaster for everything slathered with melted cheese
and of course:
Nathan's Coney Island for the best hot dog eating experience in the world.
