Less than a year after Montrose’s Latina Café closed, a new neighborhood bistro, Roost, opened in its place. Owned by Haven alum, Kevin Naderi, the farm-to-table restaurant tempts date night duos and business clients with sharable small plates offered in a home-style setting.
Inside, rustic shutters, chalkboards and bookcases accent the cozy space, along with fresh flowers, candles and buttercup-colored tablecloths. Tempting smells drift from the open kitchen, highlighting dishes on Naderi’s internationally influenced (and always changing) menu. Expect a mix of fish and meat dishes (the diver scallops and flat iron steak are both standouts), but don’t miss the roasted cauliflower and signature donut hole dessert.
The restaurant is currently working on getting its liquor services and is BYOB in the meantime. Call ahead to check the status, before you go.
