NEW YORK CITY | Roberta’s is a pizzeria in Bushwick that’s known for its laid back warehouse vibe and wood-fired pizzas. Established in 2008, in a part of Brooklyn that was surrounded by warehouses, Roberta’s has stayed true to their philosophy of using only the highest quality seasonal ingredients, grown for the most part in their own on-site garden for all of their food.
Our favourite pizza is the Rob’s Rebellion – atop a perfectly thin, spongy, charred base lies a bed of smoked mozzarella, alpine cheddar, broccoli rabe, Calabrian chilli, garlic, lemon and egg yolk. It’s delightful. For those looking for a meatier option, try the Beastmaster which is topped with pork sausage, onions, capers, jalapeño, tomato, mozzarella, and gorgonzola.
Along with pizza, Roberta’s also offer a range of other dishes – think salumi pasta, burgers, sandwiches and a few other good things. We love the house cured duck prosciutto and the sweet potato with morcilla (Spanish blood sausage), fennel, buttermilk and Calabrian chilli.
For drinks it’s mostly local craft beers on tap and a mixture of local and imported beers in bottles and cans. A handful of cocktails share the menu with a few mostly European bottles of wine by the glass, and there’s a separate 14 page wine list which features a much more extensive range of bottles.
Roberta’s is also home to a radio station, Blanca – a tasting menu-only two Michelin star restaurant, and a bakery.
