Afterwards, in 2013, the idea of two Ape Romeo was born to let the proposal of Romeo travel. It was among the first Italian examples of what it would soon become one of the top trends in the underground restaurant: the food truck. The project was extended in 2015 to Frigo, the van for the high quality ice cream by Cristina Bowerman, declined in a contemporary way, through the creation of original products such as the new cookie and the ice cream aperitivo.
In 2013 she was awarded the prize “Woman Chef of the Year” – Identità Golose 2013.
In 2015 opened Romeo at Testaccio Market in Rome, a pop concept inspired by other international examples experienced by Cristina Bowerman. It is a simple stall in the most popular and busiest market, a place to buy freshly baked bread, meat, cheese, sandwiches but also the CUPS containing creams and soups, salads and fast gourmet meals to take away. Next to it there is also FRIGO to buy ice cream.
The newest member is the new Romeo Chef&Baker, more than two thousand m2 including the restaurant, the ice cream shop Frigo and the new born, the pizzeria Giulietta. Based in Piazza dell’Emporio 28, in the borough of Testaccio, right in the centre of Rome, Romeo represents an innovative and wide concept of Italian prêt- à-porter food culture at its best: haute cuisine, delicatessen, bakery, ice-cream parlour, pizzeria, cocktail bar, catering, food store and food-related events location, conference room, all under the same roof.
