Tonight, restaurateur Carlos Suarez will open Rosemary's, his long-in-the-works Italian restaurant in the former Village Paper space. For his follow up to Bobo, Suarez tapped Eataly and Babbo vet Wade Moises to helm the kitchen. He's preparing a number of fresh pastas and focacce using ingredients that are grown on a farm on the roof of the building — once the herbs and veggies are picked, they're lowered down to the dining room in a basket.
Suarez also plans to start a food education program with P.S. 41, to teach the kids about growing vegetables and making healthy things to eat. To drink, there are 40 Italian wines priced at or below $40, plus a reserve list of more expensive bottles, and plenty of wines by the glass. In the coming weeks, Rosemary's will offer panini, salads, and baked goods to go, but for now they're just open for dinner. Take a look around, and do send any early reports our way.
