Cuisine:American, Italian. Price: $$. Location: .

A delicious Italian favorite where the menu changes daily and reservations are not accepted. Meats are sourced from local farms – as are many of the ingredients – and the marble bar and white tiled walls add an unexpected sleekness. Following a three-course Italian model with dishes that change each day, you can always expect a new discovery or surprise.

“For Italian, I go to Roman’s.” – Ted Allen
