Brooklyn, NY 11205
Village Voice's Description
Brought to you by the Diner and Marlow & Sons folks, Roman's is a summation of the restaurants that have gone before it: market driven, wood oven, and sustainably sourced. The menu changes daily--which can be both a blessing and a curse. It's also a challenge to put a meal together from the unpredictably sized dishes, which come in five categories. Nevertheless, much of the food is superb, including a beet salad with cheese croutons, onion frittata, spaghetti in brodo (channeling an Emilia-Romagnan classic), and butter lettuce salad in a sharp vinaigrette. Enjoy the dishes, then say bye-bye: You may never see them again.
Tips from foursquare
Chocolate Sorbet: New York Magazine described this as 'more like a refreshingly cold ganache, a looser pot de crème, or an artisanal Fudgsicle'. Absolutely incredible!
Staff and food are both wonderful.
2 new drinks every night, either a sour or a bitter. I like the bitter better.
Love that they have two special cocktails each night - the "sour" and the "bitter." ( I alwaze get the sour ☺)
Best staff ever. And the food is amazing. Menu changes everyday.
