A sign in the window at Romo’s Italian Kitchen & Bar at 108 Abendroth Ave. tells loyal customers: “We are sad to announce due to unfortunate circumstances Romo’s has closed its doors.” The doors were locked on July 23 and the sign appeared a few days later. Having opened Nov. 17, 2017, Romo’s lasted eight months in the same location where Brandi and before that Spadaro, both Italian restaurants, were short-lived as well.
