Neil Perry’s Rosetta to open in Sydney
Rockpool Dining Group’s Rosetta Ristorante is set to open in Grosvenor Place on Harrington Street on Tuesday 15 August.
The dining and bar experience is spread across three levels, and the space features an outdoor terrace featuring views of the city and harbour.
The ground floor accommodates 90 diners and overlooks the open kitchen with a crudo and mozzarella bar where guests can take in Rosetta’s gastronomic theatre.
Ground floor dining extends outside to a terrace bar, which caters to 60 guests. An internal staircase leads to a bar which accommodates around 28 guests and a mezzanine dining space can accomodate around 50 diners.
Rockpool Dining Group culinary and brands director Neil Perry AM said Rosetta Sydney would bring sophisticated Italian dining that showcased some of Australia’s finest ingredients to the northern end of the city.
“The seafood and produce we’re sourcing is second to none, the freshness and flavours will speak for themselves and we’ll tease out those stunning characteristics with a simple Italian touch,” says Perry.
The menu charts a seafood course through crudo, antipasti, pizzette, pasta and secondi, showcasing produce from sustainable suppliers and farmers including Marine Stewardship Certified yellowfin tuna and King George Whiting, John Dory and squid from Corner Inlet, Victoria.
Milk-fed veal from southern New South Wales is the hero meat component, present in dishes including vitello tonnato, veal tartare, osso bucco and cotoletta.
A collection of house-made dolci includes cassata, cannoli, panna cotta and Torta di Verona. True to Rosetta’s Italian roots, bread and pasta are made in-house every day.
Rosetta’s wine list is an exploration of the regions of Italy showcasing the classics and some more diverse varietals. Home-grown Italian wines feature throughout with many local favourites rounding out the selection.
Rockpool Dining Group chief executive officer Thomas Pash said it was immensely satisfying to bring a unique version of Melbourne’s much-loved Rosetta Ristorante to Sydney diners.
“Rosetta Sydney will be equally charismatic in her own unique way and we’re thrilled to be expanding such an exceptional restaurant name that has built a loyal following in Melbourne,” said Pash. “Rosetta is certainly a desirable addition to the Sydney dining scene.”
