Situated in a 100 year old bar, turned liquor store, then auto parts shop, Speedy Romeo is cooking with fire. All our dishes are prepared in a hardwood fired Italian pizza oven, and on a wood grill from Mesquite, Texas.
Named after co-owner Todd Feldman's family champion race horse, Speedy Romeo's portrait has a place of honor in the kitchen.
Italian influenced seasonal American cooking at its hottest and freshest. Greenmarket salads and appetizers, Fresh mozzarella pulled every morning, and Provel cheese "imported" from St Louis MO.
Turning out perfectly charred pizzas, as well mouthwatering steaks, chops, whole fish and burgers, there is something for all tastes.
Speedy Romeo is proud to be in included on the Michelin Guide's Bib Gourmand list every year since 2013, and now 2017 as well!.
LOWER EAST SIDE
Just like it's Brooklyn predecessor, the newly expanded, 100+ seat Lower East Side location features dishes all prepared by Chef Justin Bazdarich in a wood-burning oven and grill. The room recombines two separate restaurants around a marble horseshoe bar, serving up Italian wine, local craft beer, working class tall boys, and inventive craft cocktails. The expanded space features antique-green shelving and steel and aquamarine booths and banquettes for bigger parties. Guests can eye the Pavesi pizza oven painted like Van Halen’s “Frankenstrat” electric guitar. The restaurant utilizes salvaged décor and a bright yellow marquee sign from the defunct Rentas Liquors.
For large groups, we've also introduced two new family-style menus. The Triple Crown features our signature Caesar Salad, Mozzarella Crostini, Stuffed Peppers, and choice of Prime Rib, Porchetta, Lobster + Arancini Extravaganza, and more. Our Fight For your Right to Pizza Party menu includes pizza, wings in three combinations, pitchers of beer and prosecco, topped off with our house-made Olive Oil Cake or Banana Split Sundae (sparklers included).
Speedy Romeo strives to be an institution in the LES just like it's Brooklyn predecessor.
