The creators of Roberta’s are part of the Slow Life movement, they actually looking for quality, authenticity with an eco-friendly spirit since they are offering local products.

As a matter of fact, you’ll find a rooftop garden on top of the restaurant where they grow plants and herbs to use them in their recipes.

I didn’t get a chance to see the rooftop garden but you can take a look at the garden and the plants near the restaurant:

What can we eat?

If you’re coming to Roberta’s, I strongly advise you to taste their delicious pizza!!!

We started with an excellent Romaine salad with Pecorino cheese, caramelized walnuts and fresh mint, served with a light Caesar vinaigrette. The whole dish was exquisite.

We shared the salad and it was so good that we ate it in 3 minutes but we also didn’t have breakfast 🙂

Then, we ordered 2 pizzas recommended by the friendly waitress: El Supremo Pizza and the Famous Original pizza. Both have a very thin crust.

Famous Original: Tomato, mozzarella, caciocavallo, oregano, chili

Both pizzas were very tasty with a delicious tomato sauce. Right away, we noticed that the tomato sauce was homemade.

We ate the whole thing without leaving a crumb 🙂

Beware, the pizzas are slightly spicy, I say slightly because some of you might not be used to spices.

As you can see on the pictures, we each had a drink in a recycled mason jars.

My friend tasted the local lemonade.

Since I was thirsty, I treated myself with a local beer. I ordered a Peekskill Eastern Standard IPA /20/26 made in Peekskill in upstate New York (1hour north of NYC). This beer is quite strong and very original.

For dessert, we agreed to taste for you the Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookie. The cookie was very good, not surprising since the overall food quality is excellent.

In addition, we tried the cucumber and cilantro ice cream and I have to admit that we were a bit skeptical but nonetheless it tasted great.

What’s the best about eating at Roberta’s?

We came during the week for lunch and it was quiet. However, for dinner prepare to wait as much as 2h30 for a table!!!
Besides, the restaurant doesn’t take any reservation, it works as a first come first serve basis.

The best tip is to come earlier in the week and/or for lunch.
Of course, if you are looking for a local vibe then come in the evening before 8 pm if you want to avoid long waiting lines!!!
What’s cool about this place is that there are no tourists!! Only real New Yorkers from Brooklyn 🙂
