Roman's Restaurant Review

: From the Marlow & Sons family, Roman’s made a quick impression on Fort Greene. This Italian-inflected eatery subscribes to the locavore trend to the nth degree. The handwritten menu at the homey neighborhood spot changes nearly every day based on available seasonal ingredients, but expect hearty pâtés, such as the creamy turkey pâté on chunky farmers bread, as well as pastas like spaghetti alla carbonara and fusilli with beef ragù. Entrées keep to classics as well --- think chicken al diavolo and lamb with artichokes. The wine list isn’t extensive but offers an affordable selection of bottles and glasses.
