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.

Think of No. 7 as a really nice pub that happens to have a big dining room in the back. If you live in Fort Greene, it’s a good second-date option.
A dimly-lit, well conceived Latin American restaurant in Fort Greene that only lacks one thing - flavor. We want to love Colonia Verde. We just can't taste it.
Evelina is a Mediterranean spot that feels cooler than most of the other neighborhood restaurants in Fort Greene.

Bluestone Lane Collective Cafe
Bluestone Lane is all over Manhattan now, and that’s a good thing. But for a full-on meal, we still like the original spot in West Village best.

Marlow & Sons
Marlow & Sons is one of the original modern Brooklyn restaurants, and it’s still one of the best places to eat in the city.
Hart’s is a tiny place in Bed-Stuy with some surprisingly good food. The menu changes often, but they always play early 2000′s R&B.
