It’s frickin’ COLD outside today. I mean, it’s gotta be below zero. I normally wouldn’t comment on the temperature of the day unless I was outside at a food truck, but this was different. For one, we walked from the L to Roebling instead of the JMZ, which was about a mile closer. I forgot my scarf and earmuffs (do you call those things that go around the back of your head ‘earmuffs?’) so I was feeling it pretty good. Michelle (link) kept asking me if I wanted her hat, which looked warm. She’s such a doll.
For two, Roebling Pizza has a door that just won’t close. Not a big deal for Marc, the owner guy behind the counter standing next to an oven in sweltering heat for the better part of the year, but for Michelle and I, it was such a focus of ours that I wrote the first two paragraphs of this post on it. More in the video …
But onto the actual write-up; Marc is one of the most delightful guys I’ve met on this trip. Personable and aiming to please, he loves what he does and it shows in his work. This is the only pizza place on this trip that I’ve gone to that does slices. I didn’t realize this until now, and there’s been talk of “the death of the slice” (link), but I don’t think they’re going anywhere. A lot of these newer places that only wood or coal fire their pizza don’t do slices and claim to carry a more artisanal product, but you still never know what you’re going to get,
We loved Roebling Pizza, for the quirky ambiance (read: freezing cold) and the awesome pizza (read: Get the cheese slice and be surprised, it’s money). Definitely worth a look if you’re taking the JMZ through Williamsburg.
