ROAM: More than just a Restaurant

ROAM recently opened up in Downtown Davenport at 210 East River Drive and it is unlike any other place around. It labels itself a Brasserie, a French term meaning an informal restaurant with small bites and a mature cocktail list.  The drink selection and execution there does not disappoint!

Pictured above is ROAM’s Bloody Mary with a Busch Latte Side Car, a Coffee Colada (a Rum drink made with Nitro Cold Brew Coffee), and a Plum Smashed.

ROAM’s bar has some interesting features such as wine and cocktails on tap, a smoker box, and they make their own ice. ROAM does offer wine by the glass and bottle as well as craft draft beers and canned domestic lagers.

Housed within ROAM is also a full-service, European-style coffee bar that makes delightful coffee and espresso drinks. The coffee is served in the morning morning and is also used in the cocktail mixing during the evening hours.

ROAM offers a lounge area in addition to their bar where customers can enjoy their beverages or order off one of their delicious food menus. Dinner is served Tuesday through Saturday starting at 3pm, with Brunch on Saturday and Sundays. ROAM also features a Social Hours from 3-5pm Tuesday through Thursday, with specials on drinks and food, as well as an After Hour menu on Fridays and Saturdays from 10pm – 12am.

I must say the food is delicious. Above is the Lobster Benedict served on their Brunch Menu. ROAM’s kitchen is creating some delicious dishes that use creative thinking and execution. The Chilaquiles is pictured below.

ROAM identifies itself as a “Moto Cafe”, because housed in the building is a vintage motorcycle shop. The idea is inspired by European cafes that feature that same aesthetic–classic ideas executed flawlessly. ROAM does just that, from the decor to the food to the drinks.  While this is a new establishment, it definitely carries a vintage feel to it that is a cool and refreshing addition to Downtown Davenport.

I highly recommend this place for all of the different options it offers. As ROAM employs a creatively ambitious team, I’m certain the menus will keep changing. Keep informed with ROAM on Facebook and Instagram @liverideroam.
