Sunday Brunching in what's becoming my favorite neighborhood for food and architectural eye-candy.
I have always liked the open, airy feel of Rosemary's. I was surprised that there wasn't a wait for a table for Sunday brunch. Then my friend reminded me that everyone who lives in the neighborhood is out in the Hamptons for the Summer…but, of course.
We shared the Burrata with olive oil and basil. My friend loved the burrata here, but I found it to be a bit plain and not quite creamy enough.
I got the Stringhe Di Funghi, which is poached eggs on top of a bed of oyster mushrooms, prosciutto, and arugula. I am usually turned off by healthy choices, but this dish was delicious! Even the side of crispy potatoes were super yummy.
My friend's bucatini with a side of housemade sausage was also spot on.
The Olive Oil Cake was nice and light, but the blueberries were a bit too tart and didn't really add to the dish. I probably could have done without the dessert.
Verdict: A+. Great neighborhood restaurant with nice atmosphere and solid italian fare. Perfect for any time of the day. I wish there is a nice neighborhood restaurant like this in my hood.
