Rosalie, the chic Houston restaurant from superstar chef Chris Cosentino inside Downtown’s C. Baldwin Hotel, is finally set to reopen its doors after a lengthy shutter.

The restaurant has been closed for more than a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and according to a press release, will make its official comeback on Wednesday, September 15. As previously reported by Eater, the restaurant opened its doors in 2019 to rave reviews, then closed its doors months later as the COVID-19 pandemic intensified in Houston and restaurant dining rooms were forced to close their doors.

When it reopens, Rosalie will have a new chef at the helm, too. Jacob Coronado, a former chef de cuisine at Montrose favorite Nobie’s, will take over the kitchen, serving beloved dishes like the blue crab manicotti, rigatoni lacquered in Texas wild boar ragu, and pizzas like a wild mushroom pie topped with mozzarella and pecorino.

Coronado takes over for Sasha Grumman, who left Rosalie before heading to Portland to film the 18th season of Bravo’s Top Chef alongside fellow Houstonian Dawn Burrell. Unfortunately, Grumman was eliminated from the show pretty early, but she’s definitely bounced back. According to a recent post to her Instagram account, Grumman is now working as a chef-in-residence at a fancy resort called Villa Lena in Tuscany, Italy.

Starting on Wednesday, September 15, Rosalie will be open daily for lunch service from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and dinner service from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
