‘New generation’ of Rosebud to open Friday

The only surviving artifact from the former Rosebud of Naperville is a single framed black and white photograph of a miniature horse named “Giuseppo” wearing oversized boots.

George Dana, part-owner of the restaurant that closed after a July fire, chuckles as he looks at the picture, which he calls the unofficial mascot of the Naperville Italian eatery. For Dana, it represents the sense of humor management needed to rebuild after a fire devastated the 48 W. Chicago Ave. location last summer.

“It’s like the new generation of Rosebud, I would say,” Dana said Tuesday as staff members made preparations for the restaurant’s Friday debut in its new location.

The July 11 fire gave Dana, General Manager Jay DeMarco and Corporate Chef Brian Wright a chance to start from the ground up, gutting the former Timpano’s spot at the corner of Washington Street and Chicago Avenue.

“It’s the best of old and new,” Wright said, adding that the menu at Rosebud is a collection of recipes that represent the “greatest hits” of all Rosebud locations for the past 35-years.
