In the past six months, two sought-after New York-based pizzerias set up shop in Miami. Pizza Tropical opened at Gramps in Wynwood, and Artichoke Basille's took over the kitchen at Ricky's in South Beach.
Now, Roberta's, a popular Brooklyn restaurant and pizza joint based in Bushwick, will open a pop-up shop in the Design District this October.
Located in Jungle Plaza, Roberta's will whip up some of its signature wood-fired pies, along with a rotating roster of seasonal specials.
Some of the pizzeria's best-selling offerings, which are expected to be available in Miami, include the margherita, topped with tomato, mozzarella, and basil; the Bee Sting, layered with tomato, mozzarella, soppressata (Italian dry salami), and a dash of chili flakes with a honey drizzle; and the Famous Original, piled with caciocavallo cheese, oregano, and chili flakes. Pies will be available in two sizes and will be priced between $9 to $18.
Details about the Miami space have not yet been announced, but the pop-up might incorporate features similar to those at the Brooklyn flagship, such as industrial decor with communal seating.
Roberta's has yet to announce an exact debut date in October, but the pop-up is expected to be opened through April 2018.
Roberta's. Located in the Jungle Plaza. Entrances include 3801 NE First Ave. and 140 NE 39th St., Miami. The pop-up will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily beginning sometime in October through April 2018.
