I often get questions from visitors if I can recommend a pizza place – looks like most people want to eat pizza in NYC! I find that strange considering how much other good food and restaurants here is!

Anyway, I personally find the typical pizza in NYC are doughy and have too much cheese. Yes there is such a thing as too much cheese! Who knew?!?!?

I have a couple favorite places for pizza in NYC and one of them is Roberta’s in Bushwick, Brooklyn. As I live in Manhattan I find it to be just a little too far to go to Brooklyn for pizza. So I’m very happy that they also have a place in Urbanspace Vanderbilt Food Hall (next to Grand Central) and at the pop-up Urbanspace (check their website for locations and timings)

Roberta’s uses a wood-fired oven that gives their pizza that delicious fire taste! Using real mozzarella and on their Margherita fresh basil! It is so yummy! I think the pictures talk for themselves.

If you are in NYC and like to go to Bushwick, it is an experience itself. It is like an outdoor/indoor garden, that at the same time feels like a pop-up restaurant in an industrial building. Salvage wooden tables and brick and wood walls. It’s hard to explain, worth a visit.
