Owners and film-set designers Stephen Beatrice (Sherrybaby) and Jody Asnes (The Intern) have co-produced this vintage-furniture shop, which sits in the shadow of the BQE a few blocks from Billyburg's well-traveled Bedford strip. The scene:a down-at-the-heels deli that required months of renovating. (Beatrice and Asnes restored the original tin ceiling, put up clapboard white walls, and even transformed a massive heating pipe into a "tree" by encasing it in a barklike material.) Almost all of the store's wares have previously appeared in movies or television, which helps explain why oddities like dental instruments and a James Bond–style suitcase phone are mixed in with more expected pieces such as Emeco metal chairs, Laine side tables, and chrome chandeliers. Roulette tends to attract lofty locals eschewing the Pottery Barn look, though it has also developed a following among film students shopping for their own cinematic projects.
