Roberta's still has it: The cool-kid spot that put Bushwick on the map makes delicious pizzas, amazing sides and one of the best hamburgers in the multiverse. The all-day spot is kid-friendly at all hours, but you'll probably want to pack it in when the Zoomers start showing up around 7pm. That's OK: The key to enjoying Roberta's is to show eat when your kid is hungry—show up at 6:30 and there's no wait. Grab a seat outside, order a glass of something to take the edge off the day. Life is good, and parenthood has its perks.
