Taking his passion and the experience he gained staging at Picholine in NYC and Madrona Manor in Napa along with his work at Brennan’s, Haven, Soma and most recently as consulting Chef for Saint Genevieve in West Ave, at 26-years-old Kevin Naderi opened his first restaurant, Roost in December, 2011. Roost’s 50-seat space is cozy and unpretentious amid walls paneled with old shutters and Edison-like light fixtures fashioned from gutter drains. Roost’s rustic and diverse menu is revised every three weeks, inspired by local availability of farm-fresh seasonal ingredients and flavors of the world including the American south, Asia and from the Middle East, taking advantage of Naderi’s Persian heritage. Says Naderi, “I’ve taken a little bit from everywhere I’ve worked. It’s a good showcase for what we do.”

    Cous cous with the pastor salmon was not good. Poor flavor. Panzanellav salad was delicious.

    The salmon was wonderful as was the chocolate cake. Abbey, our server, was excellent. Polite, attentive and knowledgeable regarding the menu.

    Farm to table, lots of vegetables. The mange mousse was incredible. Cozy ambience, like being in someone's dining room.

    First time at Roost and we loved it! The fried cauli was amazing, but we expected that as it had apparently been a staple menu item for 12 years. Spicy lamb kabob was super tender and yummy. I will say my partner ordered the chicken and she was let down with her meal, there was some small bones in the chicken and she said our meals looked and tasted a lot better. Overall we would go back and id highly encourage this place for the intimate atmosphere and farm to table cuisine.

    Always a fabulous experience. Excellent service (thank you Andy) and we love the food especially the fried cauliflower with pine nuts, the bread service with pimento cheese, the salmon, the burger and the chicken and gnocchi dumplings.
