Roberta's

no pictures, but a very nice meal at Roberta's last night w/ Priya, Katie, and Dave. waited almost an hour for the table at 9pm! I think it's crazy all the time now.

I had a sausage and fennel pizza; Priya had a Good Girl (sausage and kale); Dave had a Cheeses Christ (so good; did it always have honey on it?) and Katie had linguini with cockles. We had a traditional Bibb lettuce salad before the meal, and also a snap peas with black garlic and pickled ramps salad (small, but delicious).
