Rose Water Restaurant Review

: The d├ęcor is spare and homey at this seasonal American eatery, with off-white walls, sconces and simple wood tables and chairs. Many of the dishes have Mediterranean flourishes, such as the grilled octopus and scallops and pancetta puttanesca. For starters, try the heirloom tomato and bread salad with capers, anchovies and basil or the house salad of mixed greens served with rosewater dressing. An ever-changing three-course market menu is available Monday through Thursday, a fine deal for the variety of fresh ingredients offered. Brunch is a main attraction. Reservations are not accepted, so prepare to wait during peak hours.
