Remember that hometown diner that your grandparents always dragged you to because they couldn’t fathom paying for a meal elsewhere? Roshambo is like that, but it’s a diner we actually love and that doesn’t smell like generations of collected grease and line cooks’ tears. For starters they serve ribeye, crudo, and raw and Rockfeller oysters all day. The upscale diner also has big, cushy U-shaped leather booths, and a long cocktail menu, so in the dimly-lit evenings, the place feels like a fancy steakhouse. But when you eye the table next to you enjoying an order of three-inch thick french toast and a retro-looking mug filled to the brim with coffee, the diner vibes rush back in.
