Among the many cultures that define the cuisine of New Orleans, the Greek community - which first immigrated to New Orleans in 1800 - has influenced the city’s distinct culinary landscape for more than 200 years.
With a deep appreciation for the past, Rockrose is born from a desire to offer the city a contemporary Greek restaurant, one that evokes the best of the coastal culture of the Mediterranean and capitalizes on the bounty of local Louisiana ingredients, together with artisanal products from Greece.
Two native New Orleanians, proprietor Nick Asprodites, of Greek descent, and Chef Brian Doyle, who immersed himself in numerous kitchens throughout Greece, collectively offer an authentic culinary focus that is timely, innovative and set to a beautiful space.
Adorned with deep blue hues, soft textures, and cool marble, the restaurant’s ambiance is inspired by the seaside fishing villages and port towns that dot the coasts of the Mediterranean.
With its authentic narrative of cultural and culinary influence, fresh menu, cocktail program, and limited-production wines, Rockrose brings refreshing new energy to the city’s robust restaurant scene and complements the stylish International House Hotel and its magnetic Loa bar.
