Molly Mitchell, the owner of Rose’s Fine Food, is preparing for her second act with the opening of a polish restaurant and bakery in West Village. Mitchell tells the Metro Times that the eatery she’s calling Poppies is slated to debut in a 1,600-square-foot space at the corner of Van Dyke and Agnes this summer.
As in the case of Rose’s, Mitchell plans to focus on serving dishes prepared with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients such as pierogi, pickles, and sausages. Mitchell will also be devoting a portion of the space to producing even more of those fabulous breads and pastries that Rose’s is known for with help from lead baker Eggy Ding. Poppies is expected to debut in June.
Mitchell founded Rose’s in 2014 with her cousin Lucy Peters and the pair began working on a second restaurant project, Wilda’s, in 2016. However, Peters eventually decided to part ways with Rose’s in order to focus her attention on Wilda’s. That restaurant is expected to open in New Center in 2018.
Poppies isn’t the only restaurant headed to West Village. Marrow, a combination restaurant and butcher shop headed by former Republic chef Sarah Welch, is expected to arrive in 2018 along Kercheval. Cajun-influenced pop-up Gabriel Hall is also currently renovating a building on the corner of Kercheval and Van Dyke. A bar called Destination 1905 and Italian eatery Brudders are also headed to a mixed-use development nearby.
