Roman’s is owned by the team behind Marlow & Sons and Diner, and eating here serves as further proof that sibling shadows can take their toll. Unlike those other spots (one of which is perfect for any situation requiring a low-key impressive dinner, and the other of which serves a burger we’d bike across Brooklyn for), Roman’s is pretty forgettable. The seasonal Italian and American food here changes every day, but you’ll likely find staples like a burrata with a spicy oil, whatever vegetable they feel like frying that week, three or four pastas, and a few entrees that will probably come with fingerling potatoes. If you’re someone who hangs out in Fort Greene regularly, consider Roman’s the next time you don’t want to travel for a comfortable spot at a bar and a perfectly good plate of brussels sprouts with bacon or a generously-portioned $23 plate of cavatelli. Make sure you get the best thing here - the bread.

Walter's has mastered the art of the perfect neighborhood restaurant. Plus, we're pretty sure it's named after a dog.
Miss Ada is a small, comfortable spot in Fort Greene with great Israeli food and an outdoor garden in the back.
Karasu is a Japanese speakeasy/izakaya you find by going through the back door of Walter’s in Fort Greene. Go for cocktails and fried chicken.

Perry St is a nice place, but it’s completely sterile and a little stuffy. The food was a let down - we expect a more dynamic meal from a Jean Georges restaurant.
Around since 1980, The Odeon is a New York City classic. It may not be the same downtown destination that it was thirty years ago, but they still serve very respectable bistro food and stiff drinks, and brunch is always reliable.
Boulton & Watt
Boulton & Watt is a solid neighborhood hang with average bar food and some TVs for sports viewing purposes. Adjust expectations accordingly.

Marlow & Sons
Marlow & Sons is one of the original modern Brooklyn restaurants, and it’s still one of the best places to eat in the city.
Hart’s is a tiny place in Bed-Stuy with some surprisingly good food. The menu changes often, but they always play early 2000′s R&B.
