Though it’s certainly a topic hotly debated among New Yorkers, Roberta’s in Brooklyn is, without a doubt, one of the most popular pizzerias on the market today. And while I’m sure it doesn’t hold a candle to the in-person experience, this wood-fired go-to is shipping frozen ‘zas all over the country.


Prince’s Hot Chicken

Legend has it that Nashville’s own Thorton Prince, after coming home from a night of playing the field, was served a batch of scorching hot chicken from his vindictive girlfriend. Rather than burning his mouth – and teaching him a much-needed lesson – Prince loved the dish so much he decided to open his own chicken shack. And thus, Nashville Hot was born.

Although, no, it’s nowhere near the same as getting a piece of Prince’s first-hand, you can now order this legendary dish for shipment through Goldbely.


Juinor’s Cheesecake
