From Spritz to Firepits: Rosie Cannonball’s New Patio Is Cozy-Chic and Ready for Winter

Soul-warming fare at The Chalet

Over the summer, Montrose's Rosie Cannonball restaurant debuted the Rosie Spritz patio, designed to help Houstonians stay cool while dining outside. The menu of frozen drinks and refreshing Mediterranean fare was the perfect antidote to the city's Covid summer. Now, the Rosie Cannonball team has transformed its next-door covered patio into The Chalet, complete with warm drinks and hearty food offerings inspired by the Italian Alps.


Opening tomorrow, the cozy spot boasts new, custom benches and firepits arranged in the lounge area, as well as festive red and white tables and chairs for a sit-down dining experience. The Chalet's small plates include mushroom arancini and a pork schnitzel sandwich — and cider doughnut holes for dessert. In the way of drinks, bar manager Alex Negranza along with Sarah Crowl are rolling out bevs like the Alpine Martini and a selection of different Irish Coffees, including a frozen one. But when the temps dip, there's also the 60 Degrees and Below menu with a selection of hot drinks to keep patrons warm and satisfied. (A truly hot tip: Score 20 percent off the entire check during happy hour, Wednesday through Sunday from 4-6pm.)

While the patio is first-come-first-serve, the restaurant does consider reservations for large parties of up to 12 — or even a full buyout of the space for an aprés-ski-inspired holiday affair. Email hello@rosiecannonball.com to inquire.
