Located in the historic Fulton Market with its humble origins as the meatpacking hub of Chicago’s West Loop, chef Joseph Flamm’s new restaurant evokes the traditional family run taverns of Croatia known as konobas with their utilitarian yet celebratory approach to eating and gathering.

Just as Croatian cuisine is informed by the ingredients born of its pure earth, clean air and abundance of water, the design of Rose Mary is inspired by the natural elements of Croatia’s mediterranean coast.

Whitewashed brick walls reference the pebbled beaches along the Adriatic Sea and are accented by moments of red clay and tile work of a deep, azure blue that is at play throughout.

Rustic, honey-colored oak millwork and pale stone used on the exposed surfaces that draws inspiration from Croatia’s abundant limestone quarries lend a softness and warmth to the space’s airy, indoor-outdoor feel.

Abundant plant life that is true to the region and quaint touches such as folk-inspired textiles and accessories play beautifully against the seaside-inspired room.
