One of my coworkers said that she went to a new Italian restaurant in the west village, Rosemary’s, and said that I should give it a try. I was in the process of finding a restaurant to go to with Joe and we ended up having dinner at Rosemary’s on a busy Friday night. The food was very good – good enough for me to go back the next week with Sarah, her fiance, and Ken.
We went for brunch on Sunday morning and ordered a little bit of everything to share – we started with the focaccia with pork and pickled vegetables:
This focaccia choice was flattened on a panini press (when I went for dinner, we just ordered the plain focaccia that was topped with sea salt). This option was greasy, fatty, and so delicious. We also ordered the house-made mozzarella with sea salt and basil:
The mozzarella was very chewy (a little too chewy) and there also wasn’t anything to eat the mozzarella with (no additional bread!)
The chopped salad had olives, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, and tomatoes from their rooftop farm:
I ordered a breakfast plate with mushrooms, poached eggs, and potatoes with rosemary:
Sarah ordered the eggs in purgatory, a dish that included tomatoes and sunny side eggs with some of their freshly baked bread:
Ken and Josh both ordered the salmon focaccia with freshly shaved fennel, marscapone, capers and dill:
We all enjoyed our brunch and had such a fun time catching up – I was telling Sarah that I’m cleaning out my closet and she said she wanted to come by to pick through some of the clothes I’m selling (I literally cleaned out my closet and got rid of 50% of it!) – good thing I mentioned it!
