Owners Berj Yeretzian and Tania Rahal relocated to Rye, New York and brought a piece of their home country, Lebanon, with them when they created Rosemary and Vine. As a vegetarian restaurant, Rosemary and Vine offers an abundance of colorful and fresh meals inspired by food from countries such as Morocco, Spain, Lebanon, France, and Italy. 
The restaurant is located at the corner of Purchase and Locust Streets in downtown Rye, where the Upper Crust Bagel Company Store was previously located. The inviting curb appeal welcomes visitors with massive windows and billowing curtains, allowing natural light to illuminate the restaurant. The wood pillars, wood tables, tiled floors, and exposed brick result in the restaurant’s charming aesthetic.
“Downtown Rye offers a variety of restaurants, ranging from pizza to sushi. Rosemary and Vine, however, offers a different selection of unique Mediterranean meals. I am not a vegetarian, but I always leave the restaurant satisfied,” senior Cynthia Thomas said.

The meals are vegetable-based, healthy and sustainably grown. Rosemary and Vine accommodates a variety of dietary needs and specifies on the menu if a meal contains gluten, dairy, or nuts. Ingredients in each plate can also be modified if a customer has a different food allergy.
The menu is divided into “Petites,” small dishes, and “Cazuelas,” main dishes.  Rosemary and Vine serves the dishes for both lunch and dinner.  The Petites menu consists of courses such as Roasted Beets, Rosemary Potatoes, and Mouhamara, a roasted red pepper-walnut dip. The Cazuelas menu is filled with an array of savory, more filling dishes, including Tuscan White Beans, Falafel, and Moroccan Vegetable Tagine.
The restaurant also allows customers to choose from a selection of fresh-baked breads such as 7 Grain Boule, Campagna Grande, Pita bread, and Gluten-Free Multigrain Rolls. Food options and courses change periodically according to whichever vegetables and produce are in season. The restaurant is open 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday to Saturday, and 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

Rosemary and Vine offers a supplementary kids menu for customers seeking simpler or smaller meals. The kids’ plates include meals such as Grilled Cheese Pita, Mini Falafel, and a Mini Cazuela.  Kids meals are served with organic milk and a house-made biscotti for dessert.
The “Dolce” desserts menu includes Dark Chocolate Pudding with toasted almonds and Almond Arborio Rice Pudding. The restaurant also has a coffee selection from Coffee Lab Roasters, located in Tarrytown, New York. Customers can enjoy cappuccinos or other coffee drinks along with their desserts.
“Whenever I go to Rosemary and Vine, I get one Petite and one Cazuela. My favorite combination is the hummus with pita bread and the falafel. The food is very filling, but I always try to save room for dessert. I love the dark chocolate pudding,” senior Caleigh Kupersmith said.
