Wonderful to see the old Roma. I remember it well and with great affection.

For all those who came to the neighborhood when Firehook was already here, you may be interested in this video, posted on the Popville blog, about the former long-time restaurant, The Roma (est. 1932), that was at that location until 1997. It starts off with the auction of all the safari-game trophies and furnishings that took place soon after the restaurant closed. For those who were here back then and used to dine at The Roma – here’s a strange trip backward in time!
