Three hundred specially invited guests are to taste the delights of Roman fast food in the thermopolium (that’s snack bar to you and me) in a special ceremony to mark the reopening of the joint, which has been closed to the general public for quite a number of years. Now after a long period of excavation and preservation, visitors will be able to once more taste the house specialty – baked cheese with lashings of honey.
However, as the thermopolia were used mostly by the less well off, the richer classes would often scorn these places as just a little too down market.
