The roots of the rose
Rose Cafe is an iconic restaurant in the heart of Venice, serving locals and travelers alike since 1979.
Now, 36 years later, chef Jason Neroni (formerly of Superba) has kept the roots of the Rose that the community knows and loves, while introducing his seasonal, globally influenced cuisine.
Chef Jason Neroni’s menu focuses on local Southern California cuisine with an international influence from his world travels. The bakery celebrates American classics, as well as some of the original Rose bakery classics re-conceptualized with their innovative techniques.
The sprawling space, designed by local company, Studio UNLTD, includes indoor and outdoor dining with a beer garden, a full market and bakery, Verve Coffee bar, and 40-foot cocktail bar. The design aesthetic took nods from the evolution of the Venice community over the past 30 years with artwork playing a major role. The Rose partnered with local Venice artist Craig Stecyk to cover one of its walls with a combination of bright 14-by-22-inch posters and historic imagery from the neighborhood.
