Roberta’s pizzeria may soon be coming to Williamsburg’s tallest building
Roberta’s, the famed Bushwick pizzeria that enamored pizza-lovers around Brooklyn, may open a new spot in the tallest building in Williamsburg.
The restaurant is reportedly close to signing a lease with Two Trees Management for space at 260 Kent Ave., as part of the $3 billion Domino Sugar site Master Plan. The building, designed by COOKFOX, will top out at 42 floors (435 feet) and is scheduled to open by 2019.
The deal isn’t finalized yet, but according to David Lombino, managing director of external affairs for Two Trees, it’s nearing a conclusion. If it goes through, Roberta’s will most likely take up a spot on the podium of the two-tower building, which will house roughly 13,000 square feet of retail overall.
The new location would be Roberta’s third, as the restaurant plans to open an L.A. location soon. The pizzeria rose to fame for its raucous outdoor tiki bar, rambunctious crowds, in-house radio studio and its cheekily named pizzas like the Cheesus Christ and Axel Rosenberg, according to Eater New York.
