Ask a patron about Rose’s Fine Food and “charming” will almost certainly be one of the first words out of his or her mouth. This is hearty, traditional fare served the family way—and not just because it’s run by a pair of cousins, either. Lucy Carnaghi and Molly Mitchell, the two thirtysomething cousins in question, named the restaurant after their grandmother’s favorite flower, and the whole place feels wonderfully old-fashioned, from the antique china cups to the comfort food on the menu, which includes an extensive selection of pancakes and pastries.
Rose's Fine Food says
Rose's Fine Food is all about food from scratch with the highest quality ingredients we can find. Because we believe that our team is one of our most important ingredients, we have opted to pay them a living wage instead of depending only on tips. This also creates equality between the front of the house and back of the house, making our team stronger and providing our guests with an all around better experience. While we do still accept tips if a guest feels moved to leave one, the tips are distributed equally throughout the staff. A small portion are donated to a Detroit charity each month.
