New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
The proprietors behind Roman's have a mini-empire in Brooklyn, with Diner, Marlow & Sons and Marlow & Daughters (an artisanal butcher shop featuring local, pasture-raised meats from small farms) under their belts. They all have a similar hipster vibe and sensibility, employing quality seasonal ingredients. The leanings are toward Italy here, although the restaurant's name comes from the owner's son and not from the city. On the menu, which changes daily, you'll likely find exquisite antipasti, pasta with a meaty ragu, correctly prepared fish and steak.
