RoMo's Cafe has opened at 7627 Culebra Road, Suite 107. If the address seems familiar, it's because the restaurant is located in the same plaza as Metro Basilica No. 2, which was reviewed on SavorSA recently.
But RoMo's is not Mexican food.
The menu includes a host of dishes from a variety of places that the chef and owner, Rob Yoas, has lived in.
"The inspiration for the menu here at RoMo’s is mainly derived from his upbringing," says the restaurant's website. "As a child he moved nearly every year." That gave him "a very keen sense of casual and contemporary American cuisine."
So, expect the likes of slow roasted prime rib, French Cajun risotto, herb-poached sea bass and a daily frittata. Hand-cut fries with white truffle oil or fried in duck fat are among the sides. There's also a Golden Ticket burger, which the menu says is made from three cuts of prime beef. Starters include a wedge salad with chicken breast, a soup based on New Englad boiled dinner, and arancini, or rice balls.
Nutella s'mores and boracho bread pudding are among the desserts.
The food at RoMo's "is sourced locally and fresh to the best of our ability and availability," the site says. "RoMo’s is a small business and supports local growers and producers. We pride ourselves in preparing everything in-house and producing with no outsourcing."
As you might have guessed, the Ro stands for Rob, while the Mo refers to his wife, Monica Yoas, who is the restaurant's business manager.
RoMo's is open 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. Tuesday-Friday; 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday; and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday.
