Are you willing to head out to Brooklyn for an eating experience simply not found anywhere else in the Big Apple? Then check out the remarkable, and remarkably different Roberta’s in East Williamsburg/Bushwick.

Known for their exquisite pizza primarily, they have different menus for lunch, brunch, dinner, take out and a list of drinks and wine. Roberta’s prides itself on its fresh, delectable vegetables, often coming from their very own rooftop garden. Steak and pork are on the dinner menu, but the selection of vegetarian specialties is abundant.

The décor is a bit primitive, the crowds can be daunting, and the wait for your fare a bit long. Nevertheless, there is an outdoor beer tent where you can enjoy the wait. There is also something appealing about the nitty-gritty look of the place. It is eccentric, a bit wild, and definitely delicious.

If you decide to give it a try, you can be assured you are in good company. The Clintons have been, Michel Bras, too. The tale is told that Alice Waters helped finance the garden. Now that I’ve mentioned the garden again, how about taking a tour? Roberta’s sometimes has garden workshops for interested green thumbers.

Take the plunge and give it a try. Located at 261 Moore St., Brooklyn, NY 11206, near Bogart Street. For more information call: 718-417-1118.

Late Night Basement's Chris Rose

Late Night Basement’s Chris Rose

Did you know that Late Night Basement in Brooklyn hosts a free show once a month? Well now that you know, you still have time to check out this month’s addition on Friday night, May 9th. Chris Rose will host four fabulous comics: Jon Benjamin, Walter Martin, Michelle Wolf, and Jared Logan.

In case you missed who Chris Rose is, well, he’s the guy that interviewed Williamsburg residents about their opinion of Guy Fieri opening a new restaurant right in the nabe. (It was just a joke, so calm down.) The video of this prank went viral, and now Chris is famous. Sort of. Well, at least we know he’s funny.

While supplies last there will be a two-for-one beer offer thanks to local brewer HEAVY SEAS. DJ TREATZ will also be playing a unique mixture of indie pop and Beyonce. Late Night Basement happens at Pine Box Rock Shop at 12 Grattan Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
