The Lower East Side of NYC, is becoming a true foodie hot spot of late. Many great new gems are opening up, and one not to be missed is chef Nick Curtin's Rosette. The space is perfect. A casual bar up front, where you can sit and nibble on some of Chef Curtin's unique fare, a dining room behind a curtain, and a cool downstairs space for private dinners, Rosette's space is awesome. The food is actually quite interesting, and great.
Wood-Fired Beets ($13), come with onion cream, caper, and celery leaves. Beets like you've never encountered before. Awesome.
Roasted Avocado ($6), comes with chili yogurt, puffed rice, and bonito flakes. Rosette's take on the "fully-loaded baked potato". I loved it. Fun and Great.
Pork Belly ($23) has a kombu (edible kelp) crust and is served with stone-cut oats, charred scallions, and apple balsamic. Perfectly tender and flavorful. A really nice dish.
A roasted chocolate brownie ($8) comes with hazelnut milk, birch meringue, and apple ice cream. Delectable. #BrownieDiets.
Great space, great food? Yes, Please.
