The Gem of Bushwick
Why locals love it
Roberta's is a hipster enclave turned pizzaria, or is it a pizzaria turned hipster enclave? Another age-old question of chicken and egg. Regardless, Roberta's Restaurant is the best place to dine in Bushwick. Its pizza competes with the best of Brooklyn, and the atmostphere is casual, full of energy, and never dull.
Why you should visit it
If you are interested in the rejuvination of Brooklyn, or the new alternative culture spreading across the borough - do not miss Roberta's. Began by a few friends, an empty lot, and a brickoven, Roberta's is the embodiment of the entrepreneurial spirit that characterizes Brooklyn today.
Order the 'Bee-Sting'. It's often off the menu, but if you ask the waiter nicely, the kitchen will make it for you. Think sweet & spicy!
