The hottest restaurant in NYC right now is Rosemary's Enoteca & Trattoria in the West Village. Nestled on the vibrant corner of Greenwich Ave and West 10th, this place has been packed from day one. Every time I walk by there are people crowded by the bar, or waiting outside to nab a table.
I stopped in on a recent Sunday evening when it was less hectic and had a wonderful meal. Most of the tables were filled with women, which was a good start for me. And once the food arrived, as I perched myself solo at the bar, I was able to see why this hot spot is always packed.
Homemade mozzarella ($10) with Tuscan olive oil and basil was delicious. I love me some homemade mozzarella, and this one surely hit the spot. Order it.
A small vegetable dish of beets, dandelion, and hazelnuts ($5) was superb. Those beets fresh and sweet as can be. The crunch of the hazelnut; perfection.
A pasta dish of chitarra alla carbonara ($13), with guanciale, scallions, pecorino romano, and egg, was fantastic. What Sunday Supper is all about.
You'd be smart to end your meal like I did with the olive oil cake, ($8) with whipped cream and blueberries. It was light and wonderful.
Many times the food at new hot spots in NYC is lackluster, and plays second fiddle to the scene. At Rosemary's, the hot and sexy scene, matches the wonderful fare. A rustic hot spot, with many women, great food, and one foodie magician, sounds like a magical night to me.
