Located in the former LTO space on a seemingly off-the-beaten-path block of East Broadway, Rosette is a neighborhood charmer. The surprisingly large space is split into two separate rooms: the first, with a marble-and-wood-topped bar, two comfortable couches, and a few two-top tables along the wall; and the second, spacious and cozy, with brick walls, minimalist furniture, dark red banquettes, and a dim, candlelit vibe. There’s even a living wall hovering over a metal staircase leading down to an intimate private dining room in the back, adding an almost gardenlike feel to the otherwise windowless space. The kitchen, helmed by Nick Curtin of Acme and Compose acclaim, turns out well-executed (if slightly heavy) contemporary American fare. Menu highlights include simple and delicious deviled eggs, topped with salty, smoked trout roe; crispy (read: fried) chicken cracklins with an exciting hot sauce that are worth the grease; wood-fired beets; and gently seared, pleasantly light steak tartare topped with thin cucumber slices. The bar offerings include house-created and classic cocktails and affordable wines by the glass, and the dessert menu includes creative takes on sweet flavors, like a pound cake with lemon-curd ice cream, white chocolate, huckleberry, and cashews.Brunch
