Located in the historic Fulton Market district of Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, Rose Mary is Chef/Owner Joe Flamm’s debut restaurant inspired by his Italian heritage and the bold, bright flavors of Croatian cuisine. The boisterous space—named for Flamm’s grandmothers, Mary and Mary Rose, and the herb rosemary, which grows natively along the Italian and Croatian coastlines—offers a seasonal menu of rustic yet refined dishes that encapsulate what Flamm has coined “Adriatic drinking food”.

    While our starters were fantastic, we struggled with the pasta. We tried three different dishes all of which lack luster… enjoy some wine and starters and skip the rest

    We enjoyed the ambiance and the service was great! Didn’t have to wait long for food and drinks. No real complaint about the drinks, maybe the cocktails were sweeter than we’d like but the bummer was the food… the tuna crudo was the highlight but the tortellini in the red pepper sauce wasn’t very good and then we got the beef dish that was like a pizza puff except i’ve had better pizza puffs for way less money. And then the chocolate dessert which sounded awesome on the menu was meh. I was suuuuuuper excited to come here and maybe we chose our dishes poorly but i expected better!

    We had a great meal at Rose Mary. Thursday night and the restaurant was packed. We were seated near the pass & got to see everything being plated, a great way to whet our appetites. Our server was very friendly & knowledgeable, making great recommendations. The entire staff really seemed to be firing on all cylinders a fun symphony to watch. Cocktails were tart and refreshing, the basis of mine was a frothy gin and lemon. Stracciatella was wonderful & somehow light even though it’s an entire plate full of decadent milky mozzarella + fine olive oil. The coldness of the cheese paired with that warm bread really made it addictive a perfect appetizer to get things started. The roast carrots were expertly charred lightly glazed baby carrots. Their sweetness alongside the whipped cheese was an absolutely delicious combo. This unassuming dish was one of our favorites. Zucchini fritters were gifted to our table from the kitchen, the sum was much greater than its parts. They were super crispy brown & savory with a very nice sweetness that pulls you in for another bite. The small herbaceous dipping sauce was a wonderful combo. Small heads up, they did appear a bit oily when they arrived (duh, they’re deep fried!) but didn’t taste or even feel greasy, if that makes any sense. Imagine super crispy layered potato latkes but with sweet zucchini instead, really tasty. The grilled octopus was next, served with potatoes and a deeply flavored sauce. Our least favorite as we found the flavor/texture of the grilled octopus a bit blunted and lost. I’m also biased as I very much prefer simpler undressed Sardinian versions of charred octopus. This closer resembled a Spanish tapas preparation which sits in olive oil and loses the texture of the char. Popular ribs were sticky, sweet, tangy and tender with a crispy exterior. Definitely not to be missed! Toffee pudding dessert was everything you’re hoping for after a great meal. Texture and flavor was amazing. Ran out of space here 😅

    The food was really good. Our server was phenomenal. But we were disappointed in one thing. We had a reservation for standard seating. However, we were sat at a high-top/bar table, which was an option while reserving our spot that we declined to take up. We showed up early for our 5PM reservation, so we weren't late or anything like that. We sat down anyways. My wife is short and doesn't like those tall stools because she can't touch the bottom of the stool with her feet. We tried after a minute or two but it wasn't working out. So I politely went to the host station to ask if it was at all possible to move. One host seemed a little annoyed by me asking and told another hostess to sit us at table 78. The hostess was very nice but the table was all the way in the corner room where we weren't around anyone else, even though there were other two seaters available. It definitely ruined the atmosphere and experience. We were just a little disappointed that first someone made the decision to sit us someone different to what the reservation said on the screen, and then secondly it seemed like we were being punished for asking for the seat we reserved.

    I had seen a segment on CBS morning show regarding your restaurant and couldn’t wait to try it on my husband and I’s recent visit . Your restaurant was fabulous from the clams and zucchini fritters for starters to the tortillini , salmon and gelato to finish . We can’t wait to come back . Top notch in every way

    Loved Rosemary! Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and the wine. The dishes were very creative. We just returned from a trip to Croatia and loved the whole concept of Italian Croatian food. We had a late reservation on a Sunday night and didn't feel rushed. Would definitely recommend Rosemary and can't wait to go again.

    Amazing food, beautiful atmosphere and fantastic staff!! This is my 2nd visit to this restaurant and I am already planning my 3rd! Absolutely everything that we ordered was delicious. The zucchini fritters are a must have! The food is plated beautifully, the colors and the smell of the food makes you hungry immediately. We come here hungry and leave absolutely stuffed. We plan to come back and order something different each time because we just don't have enough room in our stomachs to order 1 of everything😉

    We decided to give rose mary a second try. The restaurant is beautiful as is the wine list. The food was over salted, and way too rich. I love a good meal, unfortunately I didn’t get that rose mary.

    The staff were extremely accommodating, understanding and attentive and welcoming. Whoever the manager was on duty on this day was super helpful especially becuase we had a glitch with our gift card and they looked into it for us and granted the gift card without a problem. We really appreciated that!!
