We stumbled upon a lovely place a few weeks ago. Rosemary’s in the West Village
18 Greenwich Ave
New York, NY 10011
It’s a great open and airy space with a bar in the back where you can watch the kitchen. We initially just stopped for a little afternoon drink as it was my birthday weekend. They have prosecco on tab (which is really delish) as well as some wines. Anyways, after a little while we decided to check out the menu for a snack. We decided to go for radishes and brussels sprouts and shared linguini al limone. I have to say, everything was fantastic and I will definitely go back and try some of their other dishes.
They have a little rooftop farm where they grow a lot of their herbs and veggies so it’s all super fresh and the taste is amazing. The radishes came in a butter and garlic sauce with fresh thyme. I was about to ask for bread just to dip the sauce, it was heavenly. The brussels sprouts were roasted with balsamic and mustard grains which was the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables, so I try them a lot just to see different ways of cooking them. This is definitely close to the top of the list, but nothing can beat bacon.
The highlight though were the linguini. The housemade pasta was cooked to perfection (and I am very picky with that) and the composition of preserved lemon, parmigiano, just the right amount of a chili pepper to tingle your taste buds and breadcrumbs for crunchiness was superb. This was one of the best pasta dishes I had in a restaurant.
