New Clinton Hill Eatery Speedy Romeo to Open Next Week

January 19, 2012

The planned Wednesday opening of Speedy Romeo has been postponed until next week on January 24. Stop by and try the famous homemade mozzarella which made such a splash this past summer at the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasboard. In addition to the tasty mozzarella, chef Justin Bazdarich and his partner Todd Feldman will be offering seasonal pizzas and entrees influenced by Italian cuisine, cooked in their specialty wood-burning brick oven.

Bazdarich says his goal is to serve “every food that customers will crave.”

Other dishes to expect on the not-yet-completely-worked-out menu will be grilled half-chicken, strip steak with salsa verde, and grilled chicken Parmesan. There are also planned some amazing pizza toppings like wild-mushroom with mozzarella and egg, potato-lardo, and their specialty, the Saint Louie, which includes Provel cheese, homemade sausage, and salami.

And where does the great name come from? Romeo reflects the special connection the restaurant has to the flavors of Italy. Speedy is because the restaurant is housed in a former auto shop, where presumably the cars were repaired quickly. Although the outer façade still boasts automobile logos, the interior is completely redesigned with the help of Hecho Design.
