FOOD: Rosemary’s [West Village, NYC]


I’ve been meaning to go to Rosemary’s in the West Village for a while now.  One of my friends says that it’s his favorite restaurant in NYC.  It’s in a great location and looks so cozy from the outside so my friend and I went a couple of weeks ago, once and for all


Octopus Salame

We started with the octopus salame which was super thin and very good.  The one thing I will say is that the portions aren’t big, maybe a little on the small side, so I’d keep that in mind.  But I love octopus and was happy we ordered that!

Then we shared the carbonara pasta and a winter citrus salad.  The salad was good–but not what I was expecting at all.  It was a lot of grapefruit and lemon slices drizzled with honey, but not enough lettuce.  It was a “winter” salad. but to me it felt much more summery.  But the pasta was very good.  I don’t order pasta all that often, but I was really in the mood for it and it was excellent.

The wine we had was nice as well–I had a cabernet sauvignon and it was the perfect Wednesday night.  The decor was incredibly Christmas-y and cozy, and I can’t wait to go back.  They grow their own vegetables on the roof so I can imagine that this summer I’ll have to go and check it out.
