rostizadoWe’re looking forward to the opening of Rostizado the new project in the Mercer Warehouse by the Tres Carnales dudes, especially because one of our favourite cooks, Jesse Chalmers, will be behind the stoves. Jesse, brother of Ben (corso 32) has had a long-standing interest, let’s say love affair, with the diverse cuisine of Mexico. Now he’ll get to explore them and we’ll get to enjoy the results. We’re hearing July 19 is opening date.
