We'll be in Rome in mid-November for about a week. While I have spent countless hours researching and will continue to do so, I would be foolish not to take advantage of this board and the collective genius residing therein. Remarkably, for a couple that loves to travel and, indeed, met in Tibet, we're embarrassed to admit that somehow neither of us has ever made it to Rome before.
But I've posted too many times on Chowhound and elsewhere asking for the best [whatever I thought I wanted at the time] to do it again. Besides, that limits you to filling in MY blank. I want to get outside the box here. So, I'm asking for your recommendations. What is the best [YOU choose the category] in Rome? There is only one limitation: we'd prefer Roman (or at least Italian) food. I don't want recommendations for the best sushi or the best German food in Rome. I want the best of its category so long as the category is Roman. So it can be the best food in town, or the most romantic place, the best service, or the most expensive (or the cheapest). Let your imagination be your limit. What truly unique, extraordinary, unexpected, or special place would you send us to?
Our last night in Rome will be Thanksgiving evening. I'm tempted (but not committed) to doing your suggestion on that last night. So tell me: what's the best [fill in the blank] in Rome?
