Located inside Hotel X on the second floor, Roses Cocina is the latest venture from executive chef Adrian Niman, after he and his team took over the food and beverage department at Hotel X in July 2020.
A familiar face in the hospitality industry, Niman is also behind several popular restaurants including Rasa in Harbord Village and Pantry at Yonge and Roxborough in Rosedale.
The airy new space, decked out in elongated, plush red leather booths and black tabletops, officially opens on May 5.
In early June, weather permitting, Roses Cocina will open its patio, which offers stunning views of the Toronto skyline and Lake Ontario.
With a focus on refined, modern North American fare that’s been influenced by Tex-Mex cuisine, Roses Cocina offers up light bites and small plates that are perfect for sharing with friends, or while enjoying a craft cocktail, like the signature margarita, or a glass of wine. Many Canadian ingredients have been incorporated into the dishes on Niman’s menu, including Nova Scotia lobster. The flour tortillas are also made here in Toronto, and the produce is locally-sourced as well.
“Everything that we do is from scratch, including our bread and all of our sauces,” says Niman.
