There’s a new girl in town – and she goes by the name of Rosetta. Having taken Melbourne by storm, Rockpool Dining Group’s southern Italian concept, Restaurant Rosetta, has moved into The Rocks.
You’ll find Rosetta perched across three levels of the Grosvenor Place building. With panoramic views and a fresh ambience, Rosetta has taken on the trendy Sydney character to shake things up from its Melbourne precursor. The ground level reveals a 90-seater mozzarella and crudo bar with a large open kitchen that allows guests to watch the magic happening firsthand. A short stroll will take you through to a beautiful terrace bar that can be overlooked by the upstairs mezzanine dining spaces that are ideal for private functions or fine dining events.
The elegant interiors were inspired by the existing beauty of the building and its place in Sydney’s heritage area. Designed by Melissa Collison, expect to see decors that will paint images of the Amalfi Coast and treat your senses to memories of balmy Italian nights spent with good food and good company.
Settle in at one of Rosetta’s grand dining spaces for an aperitivo, like their fresh fruit Bellinis, and incredible fare will follow. By tying in with the harbour-side theme of its new Sydney digs, Rosetta will display a strong seafood theme. The team is teaming up with top shelf producers to provide Rosetta with the highest quality fish, like Mooloolaba yellowfin Tuna and Victorian John Dory and Squid. Think fresh scampi with blood orange, pint and pistachios, or a zuppa di pesce garlic bruschetta with a deliciously rich tomato based sauce.
“The seafood and produce we’re sourcing is second to none,” says Neil Perry, Rockpool Dining Group’s Director of Culinary and Brands. “The freshness and flavours will speak for themselves and we’ll tease out those stunning characteristics with a simple Italian touch.”
If you’re in the market for meat, southern NSW milk-fed veal is just the ticket. Whether its seafood, meat, poultry or pasta, pair it with a drop from Rosetta’s Italian-focussed wine list. To finish, house made dolci including cassata, cannoli, panna cotta will satisfy any sugar cravings, or opt for the decadent Torta di verona topped with fresh berry compote and toasted almonds for a sweet way to polish off the meal.
Rosetta is now open for lunch and dinner daily at The Rocks – and judging by the success of its older sibling, we’re certain that this buzzing spot for fine dining will fast become a staple on Sydney’s already having culinary circuit.
