Roberta’s lot on Beach 96th Street today

The Rockaway Pizza Wars of 2014 have come to a sudden and ignominious end, with beloved Pizza Nazi Whitney Aycock declaring victory. Roberta’s, the much fawned over Brooklyn pizzeria (“Hipster Italian dining” according to Google) has shuttered their sidewalk oven on Beach 96th Street. The lot has been dormant the last couple of weekends, and there is no word on if and when they will open up a more permanent location in Rockaway. When called for comment, a hostess at the Moore Street location denied even the existence of a Beach 96th Street location.

In the meantime, there are plenty of dining alternatives on the nearby restaurant row, including Whit’s End (just don’t order a slice).
