Before the pandemic, Wheated was a neighborhood gem serving excellent Neapolitan pies, fresh meatball calzones, and whiskey cocktails in Kensington. Now, they’ve closed their back patio and indoor dining room, and pivoted to a takeout-only model. Wheated still serves the same great pies named after Brooklyn neighborhoods like Ditmas Park and Vinegar Hill, but unfortunately they’ve hit pause on the excellent calzones. Our favorite pie is the "Brighton Beach," which comes topped with several slabs of crispy bacon, garlic, and black pepper - it’s like carbonara pasta on thin and crunchy crust. This pizza place also serves fresh sourdough baguettes, cookies, and premade whiskey cocktails from its takeout window every Wednesday through Sunday, so we recommend stopping by before your next picnic in Prospect Park.
