CHRIS COSENTINO, A RENOWNED CELEBRITY CHEF who is known for appearances on Top Chef Masters and The Next Iron Chef, is opening an Italian restaurant in Houston. At a press conference Thursday at The Hay Merchant in Montrose, chef Chris Shepherd announced that Cosentino, who won season four of Top Chef Masters in 2016, and is co-owner at Cockscomb in San Francisco; Jackrabbit at The Duniway in Portland, Oregon; and Acacia House at Las Alcobas in Napa Valley; will be opening Rosalie, an “approachable” Italian restaurant, around September at the C. Baldwin Hotel in downtown Houston. 

Rosalie gets its name from Cosentino’s great-grandmother, an Italian immigrant who taught him how to hand-crank pasta and make tomato sauce (or gravy). He promises dishes that connect to that past, including eggplant Parmesan with Sunday gravy, blue crab manicotti and crab sauce Americaine, and wood-oven Gulf shrimp fra diavolo.
