Definitely not romaine lettuce. It's some type of green leaf and looks like it's starting to bolt (go to seed). It could even be escarole which has a bit more substance than regular leaf lettuce.

Just regular leaf lettuce, probably the most common garden variety.

Not sure the name buts its a good lettuce, less intense than romaine and more green and less "crunchy"/bland than iceberg.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

Once again RFD resident gardener @Mars2012 nails it

These green leafy lettuces are amongst the easiest to grow, and most versatile for any home garden
