Today I made a startling discovery: Roman Frieze's name is actually a pretty clever pun. I always just thought "frieze" was a weird faux-Italian spelling of "freeze," but I just learned the word actually means "a broad horizontal band of sculpted or painted decoration, especially on a wall." The eatery's sign is literally a horizontal band of a painted pattern on a wall. All these years of passing the place, I had no idea it was a top-tier play on words.
