Rosie

Neighbourhood Bistro—Contemporary

This all-day gem fits so snugly into the neighbourhood that it’s often difficult to get a table, and always worth the wait. It’s truly wonderful in summer, when you can catch the scent of a thousand roses wafting in through the wide open doors from the Parnell Rose Gardens across the street. Head chef Mike De Vries’ menu is populated with familiar favourites such as market fish, slow-cooked lamb shoulder and chicken cotoletta, but this being a Hip Group joint, seasonal variety rockets the menu into poetic territory, with heirloom vegetables that are of such quality they’re often the stars of the plate. This may sound like something you’ve heard before, but delivered cheerfully and efficiently at Rosie, the dishes always feel new.

Slow-cooked lamb shoulder, date labneh, eggplant, bulgur wheat, almond chermoula.
