Rosemary’s

Posted by on Dec 28, 2012 in everything, gluten free grubbing | 0 comments

 

Farm to table. It seems to be all the rage in dining now a day, but it’s one that I would be happy to have around indefinitely.

Enter Rosemary’s – a Greenwich Village (rooftop) farm to table Italian enoteca & trattoria, drenched in natural sunlight, laden with the essence of fresh herbs and serving up some of the freshest fare in the area.

Now that’s something you don’t see often. Fresh veggies & herbs are hand picked and delivered to the restaurant in the most efficient way possible – stairs.

As I assumed, the waitress was knowledable on what was gluten-free and what was not.

We went for brunch. Obviously – avoid the focacce (bread), pasta (minus the spaghetti di funghi, it’s spaghetti made from mushrooms making it GF) and the paninis.

All the fruitti di mare is GF except the shrimp (ask for it GF and they can customize the order).

All meats & cheeses are GF (minus the bread). All the salads are GF (minus the bread crumbs in the caesar).

The eggs benedict can be made GF (over greens). Same with the burger.

All the sides are gluten-free.

Food from our table included:

Orecchiette w/ braised greens & homemade sausage

That is what I would call brunch well done.

Pros: Farm fresh, delicious food. Loved the ambiance.
Cons: We sat at a communal table where a little girl decided to keep banging her fists on the tabletop – quite annoying.
