Paulie Gee's vs. Roberta's waiting time [brooklyn]
We were a party of 7 at Roberta's last saturday night and when we arrived at about 740 they told us an hour and fourty five minutes - it was quite crowded but with the two bars (they had a heated tent out on the patio in addition to the regular bar which seats about 8). we were fine chatting and catching up, and ended up being pleasantly surprised when they were able to seat us in under an hour.
havent been to paulie gee's for a comparison but all the pies we tried at roberta's were very good and i really liked the kitchen items we sampled also, i wouldnt be too concerned about excessive waits on a week night.
edited to add: robertas does do reservations for groups of your size, on thursdays you have any of the options they offer (pizza only, pizza with some veg sides and antipasti, or pizzas, antipasti and meat mains) but they have to be arranged first and the all pizza option is only available up until 630 - its under the "reservations" tab on their website.
Wait time at Roberta's can be 45 to an hour, and my expeience has been on full-tilt warm spring and summer nights.
Paulie Gee's hasn't been a problem, although their eight-tops are limited...and they're good about ringing your cell if you're remotely located (like grabbing a few Brouwerij Lane craft beers on draft right up the block!)...If Paulie himself is crafting the pies, even better.
Both shine, with way different vibe at each.
