About Chef Rosander: A wayward son of Cleveland, Brian Rosander took the long road to a culinary career. Working in construction in various cities across the Midwest, Brian busied himself in the cold months working both front- and back-of-house for a number of restaurants in Cleveland, Chicago, and Wisconsin, pursuing cooking on-and-off for the better part of a decade. After returning to Cleveland in the mid-2000s, his interest in the culinary arts bloomed into a professional education at ICASI, under the tutelage of chefs Loretta Paginini, Tim McCoy, Neal Mackenzie, and Stephan Rieger. The exposure to a combination of discipline, innovation, technique, and food history set a stage for Brian to explore a world of cuisine, traveling to the Ligurian coast of Italy to study under Chef Roberto dal Seno. If his journey to find his career was winding and gradual, his race to open Rosander was anything but. A short stint working at ICASI was soon replaced by a whirlwind of kitchen designing, menu planning, and remodeling of the storefront at 44 Front Street in Berea. A family-owned establishment, Rosander began to consume the waking hours of Brian and his wife, Christina, who took on a role managing event scheduling and front-of-house operations. With the support of his family, friends, peers, and instructors, the pair hammered out a beautiful establishment, a visual representation of the aesthetic and ideals Brian values as a chef. If opening a restaurant weren't enough to fill a calendar, the support and networking of peer chefs provided Rosander with the opportunity to manage the VIP kitchen of the Fabulous Food Network Show, to cater charter flights for the Saudi Arabian royal family, and private event service, branching into culinary classes and the well-received table d'hôte "Chef's Menu" dining at the restaurant. A year later, the restaurant was to change concepts, converting the front-of-house into an eclectic, colorful ice cream parlor and eatery, with the professional kitchen focusing on catering events. It is in this environment and education that the chef takes cues for his cuisine concepts. Praised by guests for his intuition and flavorful aesthetic, Brian marries the simplicity and strengths of Mediterranean and Middle-eastern cuisine and the innovation of New American cooking that demonstrates fusion at its very finest. Not content with pretention and exclusivity, Chef Rosander works to rebuild the understanding of casual fine dining and to introduce his perspective on American dining culture for the West suburbs and the city at large.
