No place better reflects the East Williamsburg/Bushwick, Brooklyn surge than Roberta's Pizza. This is no New York City pizzeria: While their pizza are a staple of the menu—and constructed from fresh ingredients, in clever pairings, then cooked in hot, fragrant smoke—the sit down restaurant is top-notch foodie heaven. Complexity varies across foraged greens salads, aged and cured meats and seasonal delicacies. Roberta's dance-party vibes, their fantastic happy hour and the exceptional food draw Manhattanites out for an excursion. When you're done in their outdoor garden space, the neighborhood has much else to offer. Tandem, not far, is a local watering hole that best represents the Bushwick scene, with all offerings reasonably priced. The Narrows also provides another great local option. Kávé Espresso bar meets all coffee requirements, especially when their patio seating is open in the summertime! It's located in The Loom, which also houses a yoga center. Roberta's doesn't take reservations and there can be quite a wait, but that's the perfect excuse to explore.
