A visit to the Salumeria Rosi Parmacotto on Madison Avenue transforms into a journey into the heart of ancient Rome. Guests are treated to a setting embellished with statues, frescoes, mirrors, and stuccowork that narrate the grandiose atmosphere of the Roman Empire. "A place where one gets a real taste of Italy immersed in a setting that perhaps most strongly represents us in the world: the Roman Empire," comments Dante Ferretti, the three-time Academy Award-winning scenographer who designed both New York stores. He created a particularly evocative, welcoming, and refined atmosphere in this new site, representing the true essence of Italian culture and tradition.
- The Restaurant Writes...
Il Ristorante Rosi on Madison Avenue is the second New York location for Cesare Casella, the iconic Italian chef with aromatic rosemary sprigs blooming from his pocket. This new location is a more upscale, white tablecloth restaurant featuring Casella’s simple, honest, classic Italian cuisine. The restaurant offers a counter for guests to take home fine Italian produce as well as a sit down dining area with a full menu for both lunch and dinner. The interior is designed by Oscar award-winning Dante Ferretti and is evokes ancient Pompeiian villas.
Cesare Casella—Tuscan chef par excellence—is the Dean of Italian Studies at the International Culinary Center. He is committed to educating the public on the tenets of Italian culinary culture, that it is defined by its history and finds expression in the humble components of fresh ingredients.
