Rose Water is a seasonal American restaurant with a commitment to working with as much local, regional, organic, and sustainably raised foods as the season will allow. Owner John Tucker opened Rose Water in August, 2000 with the hope that there was a hunger in the wilds of Brooklyn for a restaurant devoted to Seasonal American cooking with ingredients from regional family farms. Thankfully, that hunger did exist, and it still does. John cut his teeth at Savoy in SoHo. Chef/owner Peter Hoffman had much to teach and John seems to have been paying attention, at least some of the time. Chef Bret Macris comes to us from Southern California where he spent many years at LA's famed Campanile as Chef de Cuisine. He shares our commitment to seasonality and sustainability, and it's reflected in his cooking - he works at enhancing the flavors of the great products that he sources, making certain not to overwhlem them.

    ”We must figure out a way to un-invent this food system. It’s been a major contributor to climate change, spawned the obesity crisis, poisoned countless volumes of land and water, wasted energy, tortured billions of animals… I could go on. The point is that “sustainability” is not only possible but essential: only by saving the earth can we save ourselves, and vice versa.”

    Essential reading from Mark Bittman. We hope you’ll join us in working toward solutions in 2013.

    Big food spends billions annually to convince us that that their poison is good for us. Perhaps the best push back against that kind of money is to take them to task in the street. Be there if you can.
