Roberta's is way out in Brooklyn (2o minutes on the L). Sometimes when one (me) lives in Manhattan, it's hard to remember that there are a million great places just a short ride away. This place grows it's own vegetables and herbs in it's garden out back, has bee hives that produce honey they serve, they bake bread in their own oven and they have a RADIO STATION! I felt old.
I shared a perfect meal with Jules, who is French and an artist (I like him anyways)
