Openings: Roberta's Pizza
Not sure if it has popped up on the Slice Radar yet, but this place looks promising:
I am going to check this place out very soon. Since I moved to Bushwick, I've been driving all the way to Fornino [Slice Fornino Archives] to get the real deal.
PS: Here's a report from my friend Jamie: http://theknownuniverse.us/index.php/archives/1998:
The rustic ski-camp feel of the wood paneling under the high loft ceiling, cords of wood stacked near the doorway, long, beer hall style tables, and the smell of burning wood was great, but 40 bucks for a couple of pizzas, including coffee and dessert (no liquor license yet) quickly dashed any illusions of eating there five nights a week. Still, the pizza was great and you certainly can't beat the convenience, so no complaints from me.
Sitting at the long banquet table next to ours was a guy with a notebook and a camera, taking pictures and scribbling notes for a blog or a newspaper. It led me to do a google search when I got home. Sifting through countless blogs posts and newspaper articles, pro and con, everybody is talking about Bushwick.
It has not popped up on the Slice Radar yet. Consider it "popped" now. Lemme know how it turns out if/when you go. I enjoyed Jamie's write-up of the grand opening and his own visit the next night. I wonder who was notebooking and cameraing.
Hasta la pizza,
