THE BITE: Roll n Roaster (2901 Emmons Avenue, just west of Nostrand Avenue) is well known for its roast beef sandwiches, late night crowds and its 1970s television commercials.

THE BITE: Last time we wrote about Jordan’s Lobster Dock, faithful reader Local Broker chastized us for highlighting Buffalo wings. “Why would anyone who wanted wings ever go to Jordan’s in the first place?” he decried. So, in our continued quest to please our readers, this time we take on the seafood by ordering a tuna…
