Inside Rosie's Cocktails & Pies, Cincinnati's New East Coast-Style Pizza Joint

From the team behind downtown's Crown Republic Gastropub and Over-the-Rhine's boutique steakhouse Losanti comes Rosie's Cocktails & Pies. The East Coast-style pizza spot will open in the downtown space formerly occupied by Money Chicken on Wednesday, April 28. Rosie's features a unique style of pizza made with house dough, which is then layered with cheese, toppings and sauce on top — creating a light and crisp pizza from the crust to the center of the pie. Ingredients are either made in-house or sourced from Ohio-based businesses. Along with a small variety of house pizzas and build-your-own options, the menu features a few appetizers and salads, like fried mozzarella balls (using homemade mozzarella), wings and meatballs; a Caesar salad; an antipasti salad, topped with deli meat; and cheese roll-ups. For dessert, enjoy the eatery's homemade gelato. Rosie's also has a menu of craft cocktails (including one that comes on fire!) and a selection of wine and beer. Rosie's Cocktails & Pies is located at 300 E. Seventh St., Downtown and will be open daily for both lunch and dinner.
