Making meals that both comfort and inspire has always been second nature — and top priority — for Red Gravy owner and chef Roseann Melisi Rostoker. Fostering a love for the culinary arts from a young age, she worked her way up from a cold prep station to the kitchens of the New York Stock Exchange as executive chef. Now, with her own restaurant, she shares the meals and recipes that made her fall in love with food in the first place.

“Food is more than a passion for me,” Roseann said. “It’s life, love, family, friends and laughs — it’s home.”

With locally sourced ingredients, specials tailored to the flavors of each season, and brunch menus inspired by her travels, Roseann is still motivated to taste, learn and improve. It’s this dedication that has landed Red Gravy the title of #1 Brunch Spot on OpenTable, in addition to being voted Top Brunch and Top Italian restaurant by New Orleans Magazine for three years running.

“I welcome you to dine with us,” Roseann said. “We always make too much.”
