First Marek and Kristyna who are not only talented artists, but also an amazing and wonderful couple, showed us around Bushwick, which was full of surprises! My favorite was a nondescript door with only the word "Roberta's" written above it that Marek ventured into. We followed with trepidation but were absolutely delighted with what was found! A bustling and rustic pizza shop with a garden in the back. Roberta's was absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to go back and spend some more time there! Here is a photo from their backyard garden:
Next we went to their apartment, which has a spacious backyard (an anomaly in NYC) with a nice garden and peaceful pond with running water; and we had a grilled pizza feast: all ingredients whole and unprocessed!

Kristyna squeezing fresh limes/lemons for the salad dressing.
The pizzas and dessert were so so yummy that I didn't even take the time out to photograph that part of the meal. For dessert we had hot spiced apple compote with berries and Wild Mountain tea. It was such a nice evening!
