Roman’s review image



243 DeKalb Ave, Brooklyn
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Roman’s is owned by the team behind Marlow & Sons and Diner, and eating here serves as further proof that sibling shadows can take their toll. Unlike those other spots (one of which is perfect for any situation requiring a low-key impressive dinner, and the other of which serves a burger we’d bike across Brooklyn for), Roman’s is pretty forgettable. The seasonal Italian and American food here changes every day, but you’ll likely find staples like a burrata with a spicy oil, whatever vegetable they feel like frying that week, three or four pastas, and a few entrees that will probably come with fingerling potatoes. If you’re someone who hangs out in Fort Greene regularly, consider Roman’s the next time you don’t want to travel for a comfortable spot at a bar and a perfectly good plate of brussels sprouts with bacon or a generously-portioned $23 plate of cavatelli. Make sure you get the best thing here - the bread.

Hart’s is a tiny place in Bed-Stuy with great, unpretentious food and a constantly changing menu.

Lady’s review image

Lady’s is big, modern Italian restaurant a few blocks north of the Barclays Center, and it’s great for a last-minute dinner.

Cafe Colette review image

While the burger and the brunch menu are great, the rest of the menu at Cafe Colette falls short.
