Voted “Dayton’s Best Chef” in 2012, Dana Downs’s first restaurant, Roost Italian, is the culmination of her years of working in Dayton’s finest culinary establishments. Roost takes traditional Italian foods and utilizes modern techniques and ingredients, developing unique flavors to create what Dana calls “Modern Italian.” The dinner-only restaurant just completed a renovation — turning the courtyard into a four-season room, with rolling garage doors that open when weather permits, and adding more tables to her mecca of food in the Historic Oregon District.
