The biggest restaurant Rome has ever seen, now stands proud in the gastronomic heart of the city, Testaccio. Gourmands and the local food and wine sector have been watching closely and waiting as the only female chef in the city with a Michelin star under her belt, Cristina Bowerman unveiled her new venture (jointly with her partner Fabio Spada, gragnano pasta maker Giuseppe Di Martini and journalist, Antonio Scuteri). Andrea Lupacchini, who has been instrumental in Bowerman's other businesses, designed the ultra contemporary and eye-catching design and interiors. Open all day, aperitivo time is a treat with a huge bar where you can sit and enjoy Bowerman's carefully constructed finger food snacks like gyoza and vegetable tacos to match cocktails by bar boss and expert mixologist Riccardo Gambino, formerly of Roscioli and The Corner. For the restaurant section (Romeo, Chef & Baker), Bowerman with her extremely talented sous chefs Emiliano Valenti and Antonio Giordano, has devised a charismatic and cosmopolitan menu that showcases the very best local ingredients. At lunch you'll find quick and even 2 course meals, and salumi, cheese and baked goods are available all day at the bar counter. On the dinner menu, instead of the traditional antipasti, primi e secondi (entree, first and second course) dishes are organised by produce � meats, fish and vegetables for instance. Think - hummus and pulled pork tacos to start, cacio e pepe filled ravioli with apple butter in the middle and to finish? Profiteroles on a soft chocolate biscuit with white chocolate caramel sauce. You won't want to miss this latest hotspot on the Roman dining scene. BUS: 75, 44, TRAM: 3, METRO: Ostiense.
