Another week, another restaurant. Lol I’m such a brat. I even hate me for saying that.
I had the absolute pleasure this week of sitting down with two of my blogger acquaintances of whom I had met just a week ago (at the InStyle Magazine Summer Social), and pepper them with questions about work, life, and everything in-between. H and B are a breath of fresh air when it comes to the blogging world simply because they have such a clear passion for what they do. H actually just quit her 9 to 5 to pursue blogging full-time, and I have to give her SO much credit…nothing is scarier than making that first big jump. Since B lives on the Upper East Side and H lives in Brooklyn, we decided to pick somewhere in-between us to meet and eat (duh, it’s all about the food).
A few of my co-workers had been on me about trying Rosemary’s because they said the food is to die for. Needless to say, I was sold the second I found out it was an Italian place…who doesn’t like pasta #amiright?
The second you walk into the place (located right in Greenwich Village) you’re greeted with a gorgeous open and airy space. There was plenty of seating, including al fresco if that’s your jam. Our server was a total sweetheart, and was full of recommendations of what to try. We obviously went jamón and ordered a focaccia pizza situation as an appetizer. H and I both opted for a pasta dish, while B ordered a roasted chicken dish that looked TO DIE FOR.
I think the coolest part of Rosemary’s is that everything on the menu is cooked with food that is all grown on their roof. Yep, I’m not kidding you. Tucked away in a corner by the bar, you’ll notice a metal staircase leading up.
We pointed it out to our server and asked if there was a rooftop bar or something that we should check out, and she laughed. She explained that part of the beauty of Rosemary’s is the fact that they curate their menu based on what is being grown on their roof. My pasta dish even featured these guys…
Yep! Cherry tomatoes!
Nothing is quite as magical as being knee-deep in greenery while being surrounded by skyscrapers. Totally weird and totally awesome!
So bottom line, if you’re in the area you definitely should pop into Rosemary’s if only to check out their rooftop garden. Next, try the fizzy rosemary lemonade (made with bubbly, of course). You won’t be disappointed!
