Second generation, Chef /Owner, Suzanne Perrotto of Brule Bistro in Delray Beach later this spring will open another restaurant – Rose’s Daughter, American Trattoria. Also located in Downtown Delray’s Pineapple Grove neighborhood, Rose’s Daughter American Trattoria will feature outdoor patio, full bar and Bastardo’s, a late-night courtyard for music and cocktails, plus continental “grab and go” breakfast café.
Perrotto’s earliest memory is in the kitchen of her parent’s restaurant, Sonny’s Trattoria, in New York. Perrotto’s mother, Linda Rose was the chef and mastermind of the operation; her epicurean style combined tradition with seasonal ingredients steeped in generations of authentic Italian cuisine. By the age of 14, Suzanne Perrotto was in the kitchen cooking, learning classic culinary techniques and, preparing many of the dishes that will appear on Rose’s Daughter menu.
Newly certified in Neapolitan pizza making, Chef Suzanne will serve hand crafted, made-from-scratch pies in a rustic pizza oven, plus homemade pastas, charcuterie, cheeses, and tableside presentations from her mom’s original Italian menu. “Linda Rose’s Sunday Dinner” specials will feature family style courses and specialties from her childhood family gatherings.
“Sunday dinners were the heart of our family, it was all about the eating,’’ Perrotto said.
Heirloom dishes will include gnocchi verde, with house-made ricotta, pecorino cream reduction, freshly cracked pepper; house-made sausage Bolognese; and ricotta cheesecake for dessert.
Mornings at Rose’s Daughter take on a new twist; Arancia (Italian for orange) will be a continental breakfast stop on the front patio for a casual grab-and-go start to the day. Italian colazione (breakfast) will offer hot espressos, barista-styled brewed coffees, freshly squeezed orange juice, signature, warm-from-the-oven, orange brioche, biscuits, egg sandwiches, and other wood-fire breakfast specials.
