A see-and-be-seen crowd swarms Rosemary's for fiercely flavored food at gentle prices. (Even celebs have caught the bug — Cameron Diaz has been sighted here multiple times.) With its big windows, strings of white lights hanging from exposed rafters and potted plants, the restaurant's interior evokes outdoor dining year-round. Chef Wade Moises honed his craft at Mario Batali's Babbo and Lupa, and his seasonal dishes meld classic preparations with fresh-as-can-be ingredients. Expect perfectly cooked linguine to tangle with preserved lemon and hot pickled chiles, or braised octopus paired with cheesy focaccia. The main course minestra, billed as "the ultimate minestrone," combines macaroni with impeccable produce — some harvested from Rosemary's rooftop garden — for one of the best vegetarian meals in town. Lighter crowds and stellar lunch-only menu items, such as lamb panini with creamy ricotta, sweet honey, fresh mint and earthy braised greens, make a midday visit worthwhile. If you go for dinner anticipate a long wait and, when ordering, skip the pricey strip steak for two — it doesn't pack the same wow-factor as the (much cheaper) pastas.
