Roman Cusine

  • 6

There is a Roman restaurant somewhere on the lower eastside. Anyone got the name or know of any others?

  1. Cacio e Pepe in the E Vill is Roman and very good. The other Italian restaurants I can think of on the LES don't advertise to be Roman (e.g. Falai, Apizz, Basso Est).

      Thanks I'm going to add that to my list. What makes Roman Cuisine distinctive?

        Here's an explanation of Roman cuisine: http://www.annamariavolpi.com/roman_c...

        Uptown in the Theater District, Lattanzi serves some classical dishes of the Roman Jews. Fried artichokes are the most famous.

      1. il bagatto was started (and still owned by) two romani - on second street. is that what you're thinking of? aroma wine bar feels very roman to me on east 4th - lovely food and great wine.
