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

The Meatball Shop
The are a bunch of Meatball Shops in the city, and they’re all good for a casual meal. As you probably guessed, you’ll be eating meatballs here.
Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
Gallow Green is the rooftop bar on top of the hotel in Chelsea where Sleep No More takes place, although you don’t have to wear a mask to drink here.

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.
