261 Moore St, Brooklyn (Bushwick sick)
Self-imposed late pass. My first time to try Roberta's. I went with Mimi and her roommate Thom this weekend - Caturday was sunny and nice, so we biked out there and shared a bunch of pizzas.
There was a 40 min wait so we had some drinks at the bar. The bloody marys are pretty damn good - it's not just straight up warm juice from a can diddled in some ice cubes. This is mixed well with Tabasco, horseradish, etc etc and served with a pickled jalapeno in a mason jar.
We also ordered a calzone with prosciutto and pesto inside. My first calzone ever! Now all future calzones will have to live up to this one. If I wasn't trying to be polite I would've skipped the knife/fork and just doublefisted it into my mouth.
Most Neapolitan style pizzas (thin crust) get soggy. At Eataly they will warn you of this. At Roberta's there are no excuses. Because they don't need any. No sog, and I actually tried to eat all of my crusts. THAT MEANS SOMETHING!
Anyway if you can stand the wait this place is definitely worth the trip out to Bushwick. Just look for the string of sparkly stilletos and sneakers hanging from a wire. You'll know you're home.
