The nook carved below Rose Live Music feeds bohemian-type rockers Mediterranean plates in a setting reminiscent of an Italian vintner’s secret cellar. A cubby-hole bar and backlit wine cabinets made of splintering wood and chicken wire line the back wall. Exposed stone, mismatched oak chairs pulled up to weather-worn pine tables, and votives encased in glass lanterns lend to the rustic setting. It’s transporting at first, but the bare concrete floor and exposed piping overhead betray that this is just an old Brooklyn basement. The menu is similarly inconsistent. Lightly dressed starters like mixed roasted vegetables served with goat cheese slathered crostini highlight organic produce. Entrées, though, are inexpertly prepared: A veal cutlet comes out dry and brittle as jerky and Grandma’s Spicy Meatballs are unsubstantial and lacking discernable spice. The warm brownie infused with cayenne pepper packs more heat, and its citrus-spiked vanilla custard does make a fitting coolant, but it’s clear you’ll only want to pop down for a bite before or after a show. In fact, it’s best that you’re enthused about whatever’s going on upstairs to enjoy your mealóany performance above is sure to drown out the mellow jazz trying to set the mood down below.
