The combination of puffy, charred crust, and sweet-salty tomato sauce at Roberta’s in Bushwick is, to us, the perfect pizza. Along with those still-delicious pizzas, the restaurant is delivering make-your-own pasta kits, too, complete with detailed instructions. For those who like their pies piping-hot, check out Roberta’s thoughtful how-to-reheat illustrations on the site.
For the mornings when only a French baguette will do, there’s Bushwick staple L’imprimerie. The bakery is keeping up with bread and pastry orders, plus pantry items like sauerkraut, dried beans, coffee, granola, yogurt, and wine. L’imprimerie is giving free pizza assembly kits to essential workers (which means anyone keeping the city running—drivers, medics, restaurant workers, etc.), and you can buy them as well. And all those looking to master the art of sourdough should make a beeline for the bakery’s starter kits.
Brooklyn-based Roberta’s has been warmly flourishing for years. They cater events and weddings throughout the five boroughs (and will travel beyond the city). Their catering menu is fairly similar to their Bushwick restaurant menu: wonderful pizzas, seasonal veggies, meat and cheese plate apps—with raw bar additions. You can also host an event in their attached garden space (holds up to 180 for standing events and 120 for seated weddings).
