More on Rosina Gourmet.

By Bret McCabe | Posted 11/12/2008

The address for the downtown location of this deli and catering business is a bit misleading, as you enter off quiet Water Street, making Rosina Gourmet feel like an undiscovered oasis in the devil's triangle bounded by the Block to the north, Power Plant Live to the east, and the Inner Harbor directly south. It's worth wandering over to check out, though. Rosina offers a lively assortment of reasonably priced fresh sandwiches, salads, and soups, but what's especially inviting is the three different meatless-sandwich options. Both the grilled vegetable ($6.99) and Rosina health ($6.99, with Havarti, tomato, carrot, cucumber, alfalfa sprouts, red onion, and spinach) sounded yummy, but the white cheddar ($6.99) really stood out. A generous amount of the sharp, titular aged cheese was joined by field greens and Granny Smith apple slices on multigrain bread brushed with the deli's tangy homemade honey mustard, and it comes served with a dollop of pasta salad. Add an assortment of boutique chips and beverages (prices vary), and it's a high-end, exceptionally tasty lunch in the $10 range. Not bad.
