Speedy Romeo is on a new "Brooklyn Food Strip" on burgeoning Classon Ave close to the Classon Ave train station. It is a large corner spot in what used to be a garage. The light bright spot sports an open kitchen and has that hipster vibe one expects in this corner of Brooklyn. The brunch hosts breakfast and lunch foods which is great. I started with the butternut squash soup finished with creme fraiche and hazelnuts for $10. This was a stellar soup- rich and delicious. The pizzas which Speedy Romeo is known for is what I opted for. The Casey Moore($14) promised baked clams, spinach, and bechamel, plus tarragon. While the brick oven baked pizza was perfectly cooked and mega tasty- I was expecting clams with breadcrumbs and garlic. Otherwise, a nice Brooklyn spot.
