Looking Rosy at Zia Rosetta's - May 20, 2015

Off we go, exploring another Roman tradition with a contemporary twist. We're going to have an unusual and informal aperitivo meet-up, checking out Zia Rosetta, a fusion of the classic Roman bun -- the rosetta -- with the latest trends in street food traditions and organic, quality ingredients, at a very cute spot in the historic Monti district. We might also sneak in some artisan ice-cream nearby afterwards!

The ideal way to explore the delicious combinations dreamt up by owner Alessandro Verderosa (he even has a rose in his surname!) is by selecting a number of "mini rosette" along with your beverage of choice. The tiny sandwiches include such mouth-watering combinations as swordfish-guacamole-cherry tomatoes-mint, chicken-green apple-endive-yogurt sauce-chives, and hummus-sundried tomatoes-avocado. Besides classic beverages such as wine by the glass and craft beers, Zia Rosetta also offers the super-healthy (and very cosmopolitan) option of freshly-blended fruit and vegetable juice drinks.

When: Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Where: Via Urbana 54 (near Cavour metro stop)
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Cost: Mini rosette are €2 to €3 each, drinks and other food choices depending on your choices!
