With its arched porticoes and open hearth, Rossini’s Restaurant recalls the main room of a rustic Italian lodge. It’s a testament to founder Amalia Rossini’s mission to replicate the warmth she enjoyed at her family homestead in the Friuli region of Italy. More than 60 years since the restaurant’s opening, Chef Ed Prelaz upholds Amalia Rossini’s legacy, drawing upon her family recipes to create a menu of classic Italian dishes. He tosses linguine in housemade meat sauce and marinates meats in extra-virgin olive oil and herbs. Additionally, he enhances seafood with gourmet flourishes such as mandarin butter and lemoncello olive oil. Rossini’s Restaurant also features an extensive list of international wines, and servers are happy to recommend wines that pair well with certain dishes or stark white shirts.
