This new 74-seat farmhouse-style trattoria adorned with dangling plants and twinkling lights serves some of the freshest Italian fare in the city. Probably because chef Wade Moises (Babbo, Eataly) sources most of the produce from the restaurant’s rooftop garden for his Tuscan-inspired menu. Rosemary’s is buzzing on a nightly basis and for good reason: freshly-made pastas like Orecchiette with braised greens and homemade sausage; fluffy focaccia stuffed with strachino cheese; and perfectly-cooked Skirt Steak with crispy potatoes and balsamic steak sauce. There’s also a stellar Italian wine list that offers 40 bottles for $40. PS, there take-out counter opens in September.
Rosemary’s, 18 Greenwich Avenue (at 10th street); 212-647-1818.
Two restaurants in one space? Yes. Amadeus B.’s month-old eateries are tucked away in an alley on the edge of Noho. While Extra Place is a 50-seat Mediterranean resto dishing out hummus and Octopus La Plancha, its next-door neighbor, Heidi, is a 20-seat chalet-style Swiss joint serving fondue and other Swiss-ified plates. Executive Chef Michael Han overseas both kitchens, and uses locally sourced ingredients.
Extra Place, 8 Extra Place (between 1st and 2nd streets); 212-777-4252.
Heidi, 6 Extra Place (between 1st and 2nd streets); 212-777-4262.
