Chef Chris Cosentino, winner of Top Chef Masters, has opened his first restaurant in Houston —Rosalie— in October 2019 with his business partner Oliver Wharton. Arguably Cosentino’s most personal endeavor to date, Rosalie Italian Soul is named after and inspired by Chris’ great- grandmother Rosalie Cosentino, a first-generation Italian immigrant who inspired his career in cooking.
The 145-seat restaurant is located in Downtown Houston’s C. Baldwin Hotel, named after Charlotte Baldwin Allen, known as the “Mother of Houston.” The menu features classic red- sauce dishes reminiscent of lessons Chris learned from his great-grandmother, as well as his own interpretations. Pastas are made fresh daily, and a pizza oven is a focal point of the space. Philadelphia-based interior design studio Rohe Creative collaborated with Cosentino to design a dining experience with Rosalie Cosentino’s 1970s kitchen in mind. They aimed to weave together the comfort of home and aesthetics from this period, in which Chef Cosentino was learning alongside Rosalie.
Rosalie is open for breakfast: Monday-Friday 6:30-10am, Saturday-Sunday 7:30am-10:30am; lunch: beginning October 23, 2019; and dinner: Monday – Sunday 5-10pm. For additional information, please visit www.rosalieitaliansoul.com.
