Roman's in Fort Greene

Went last night. It was pleasantly full but not overcrowded at 8pm.

The waiter recommended ordering the whole menu for four people, so we did. (4 apps, 4 primi, 2 secondi, 3 sides, 1 dessert) Since the menu changes every day I won't rate each dish. The food seemed mostly quite good, especially the pastas, octopus and the gelato. But it was a little hard to judge because we each literally only got a mouthful or two of each plate. For $45 each (incl. wine) I felt disappointingly un-full.

I would go again and order a three-course small-plate flight for myself just so I could actually get enough food to judge (and to be sated!). But it wouldn't be cheap to do so.

The space is cute but very loud, maybe due to the subway-tile paneling. Service was quite good. The entrance was disconcerting though: a NYC stop-work notice taped to the door, along with a scruffy sheet of white paper taped to the door crookedly with red duct tape reading, "Roman's-- OPEN". Not sure what that was all about.
