Our Story

As many of you know, I’ve been on an amazing culinary journey these last few years. I’ve prepared gourmet dishes in some of NYC’s finest restaurants; roasted pigs in backyards and at stadium tailgates for thousands; cooked classical Greek menus and American pub food and tossed buffalo wings by the boatload. But deep down, I always knew I needed to get back to my first love, to my roots: Italian food.

So in 2019, with no more than an idea in a marble notebook, I got to work and today, Brooklyn Roots is a living, breathing thing. I am finally home and so proud to cook dishes that are familiar, but always a little different than the standard. We are old school in a modern world, we will never compromise our standards, and we will always show you how much we appreciate you choosing to dine with us.

~ Chef Thomas Perone
