A glittering siren on an otherwise quiet-by-night street, neighbourhood bistro Rosie firmly holds its own among Hip Group’s other eateries. A wait for your table can be sweetened by a stroll at the nearby Parnell Rose Gardens, or a chat with locals stopping by while walking their dogs. Sectioned into neat seafood, vegetables and meat categories, the focus here is on good ingredients and generous portions – think line-caught fish of the day, unpretentious pasta and proteins paired with produce from the season – and buoyed perfectly by seamless service. Parnell locals are lucky to have it on their corner.
