The Perfect Bun
Rome, IT-RM 186 Italy 06.06.4547.6337 http://theperfectbun.it
The Perfect Bun is a refreshingly authentic take on American cuisine, which in Rome is so often represented by frozen wings and flat and lifeless burgers. The restaurant has ousted sleek Italian Bistro CO2 from its prime location at Largo del Teatro Valle and kept the classy, modern interior.
The menu is inspired by traditional diner fare and peppered with Tex-Mex dishes including a mean grilled chicken quesadilla. Salsa and guacamole are made fresh. Hamburgers and cheeseburgers are thick and juicy and come served with all the trimmings (including grilled onions!) on the promised perfectly round bun. Onion rings, fries, chicken wings, and chicken fingers are deepfried to clean, crisp.
Desserts are made in-house, and include the classics you just can’t get anywhere else: a real cheesecake, cupcakes, and chocolate chip and sugar cookies.
The wine and cocktail list are comprehensive and service is appropriately American-style smiley. Nostalgia comes at a price. Expect to spend about €40 a head. Daily 6.30 p.m.-2 a.m. Sunday Brunch.
