After hearing the” Foodies “rave about Roberta’s, especially my virtual good friend, @docsconz ,I dragged a few of my fellow workers to Roberta’s under penalty of job loss.We did not know what to expect in the neighborhood known for savory characters not savory food but were pleasantly surprised.We parked close to the front of the restaurant,shown above, hoping the car would be there when we came out.
We walked into the restaurant and are right in front of the pizza oven,piled up with pizza boxes,ready to go ,this place must have good pizza.We sit down at one of the family style tables and are greeted by our lovely server Lily,shown in the last picture and the perfect server for Roberta’s style.We start off ordering one of the many choices of local brewed Brooklyn ,beer and ale.My choice was Six Point Sehr Crisp,Czech Style Pilsner , Red Hook , Brooklyn ,served in a jar as shown, and luscious. My associate Juan Mendoza was served the Nebraska I.P.A. from Papillian, Nebraska and of course,a great choice.
We start the meal with a specialty Pizza,Beastmaster,tomato,mozzarela,Berkshire pork sausage, onions,capers, jalapenos ,as shown.The pizza taste was better than expected ,although the crust and dough were thicker that this Bostonian prefers.We now move into the mains ,all shown,I try the Fois Gras ,perfectly cooked, with rhubarb and black pepper and share with the rest ,home made Farfelle,with snap peas and parmigiano,this is no pizza only restaurant.
Juan and Leon the Lion both have the Lamb Breast, mint, spring onion,yogurt, this is the best belly flavor we all have ever tasted from the Lamb,wow.
It is time for dessert , I usually pass but we all tried a choice to get a sampling. My choice,the non veggie person, Watercress Gelato,strawberry sauce,and wow a pepper taste that pops.Juan has a Lemon Verbena, berries and chocolate brownie and Leon ,a chocolate crisp ice cream ,all good but not up to the Watercress .
Let the Truth be Told, a Pizza parlor in Bushwick ,not worth the trip to most ,but not to Gagit and fellow foodies.Roberta’s will not only be recommended to all my foodie friends and even non foodie friends but a place that I will be back and back and back,even if my guests are forced to come at gun point:)
