Next up on #OffTheMenu : gets about a dozen ducks from Crescent Duck Farm every week. Upon arrival, Chef Brian Leth pricks the skin with thumbtacks to render out the fat. Then the duck is blanched, hung in the fridge for six days and then roasted and glazed with lavender-infused honey. This week it's served with a fennel salad. Book in advance! #FRavorites

Tuna tartare can oftentimes be monotonous at restaurants. Not this version at @florabarnyc, located at NYC's @metbreuer museum. @themostcuriousgeorge thoroughly enjoyed the crunch of flax seeds and fried shallots, mixed with potato and truffle, in this take at @ignaciomattos's new spot. #fravorites

Before leaving New York to become a Californian, FR's @dannycarnaje had to pay his respects to the Peter Luger burger. WE. BOW. DOWN. #FRavorites

I am obsessed with this salad!! It's called puntarelle and in Rome it comes with an anchovy dressing and its a little salty and crunchy. So tasty! I'm @dueladroni which is another traditional Roman restaurant where I've also got spinach, artichoke and a broad bean soup. Thank you so much for tuning into my Roman takeover. It's only a just the tip of the iceberg of Rome has to offer but hope you've enjoyed it. Follow me @antoninaparker for recipes and culinary adventures. Love Nina x #FRTakeover

Giolitti is a street away from Grom and also does some incredible gelato. It a beautiful classic ice cream parlour and Its says it has been around since 1900!!!! The queue moves quite fast so don't be alarmed and it's totally worth it. I went for gianduja which was totally amazing although it was so rich that it needed a chaser of vanilla to cut through it. Que buono! (@antoninaparker #FRTakeover )

Ciao! These guys are everywhere and I highly recommend trying some of their roasted chestnuts. You can smell them coming a mile away, and it's pretty sweet. The perfect thing to munch on while walking around, especially Via Margutta which is great for some beautiful interior shops. (@antoninaparker #FRTakeover )

@labuvetteroma is a cute little restaurant on Via Vittoria which is just off from the Spanish Steps so you can do it for lunch or dinner. They always have a lasagna of the day which I had to go for of sausage and broccoli. They also had a good salad Caprese and the interiors have an French bistro-feel with wood panelling and leather banquet seating. (@antoninaparker #FRTakeover )

Here is an artichoke cooked Roman-style. These are found on most menus and are gently boiled and then covered in olive oil, lemon juice and chopped parsley or oregano. They are wonderfully soft and delicate to eat. The other way of eating them is Jewish-Roman-style which is when they are deep fried in oil. Both are pretty delicious. (@antoninaparker #FRTakeover )

There are some amazing vegetable markets in the piazzas and you bump into them all the time. Puntarelle (a sort of crunchy, bitter vegetable perfect for salads) and artichokes always feature and are two of the top Roman veggies. Visit the Campo Dei Fiori Market which is one of the oldest and most popular markets in the Piazza Campo de' Fiori. Open everyday except Sundays. (@antoninaparker #FRTakeover )

Buongiorno! I've been staying @palazzodama who have the most amazing Italian interiors which is the perfect setting to enjoy a cappuccino with fresh fruit salad, yogurt and honey. If you are looking for some more good coffee then Tazza d'oro ( by the Pantheon) is the place to go where you can devour a 'Granita al caffe con Panna' or just a good quality expresso.

Still at Matricianella and in a food coma but there is always room for sweets. When in I went for a tiramisu which was the perfect end to a wonderful evening. Apparently there is a famous takeaway tiramisu place called Pompi Tiramisu on Via della Croce, 82 which is also worth checking out. Buona Notte (@antoninaparker #FRTakeover )

Matricianella ticks all the boxes for me. It has a cosy atmosphere with brown checked tablecloths and friendly service. It’s been doing something right as it’s been open since 1957 and still going strong. I was recommended to have amatriciana pasta which came with bucatini and was amazing!! Lots of crispy pancetta and tomato sauce with a hint of chilli. Their spinach alla Romana with toasted pine nuts and raisins was so simple but put spinach to new levels.
