In 2004 Rose Nammack established Rosie in the heart of downtown New Canaan. Since the beginning, Rosie has won loyal customers by presenting their idea of seasonal American comfort food (i.e. braised lamb shank, lobster roll, shrimp and grits and chicken pot pie) using the finest ingredients available. Some menu highlights include the huevos rancheros, fish taco, homemade soups, grilled panini and decorated cupcakes. Rosie is also a place to enjoy some great coffee while inspecting the ever-changing display of work by local artists. Rosie offers table service, take-out and professional level catering. Gracious service, award winning desserts and free delivery in town are just some of the features Rosie brings to the table. Easily accessible from Elm Street with hours every day of the week except for Monday, be prepared for a warm welcome!
