Rose Café & Market, a fixture in the heart of Venice since 1979, will temporarily close for renovations on Monday in order to reopen in May with expanded meal offerings through a partnership with the Sprout L.A. restaurant group.

Chef Jason Neroni, formerly of Superba Food + Bread, will also be joining the Rose Café team, co-owner Manhar Patel said.

The remodel is largely focused on kitchen upgrades and will allow the breakfast and lunch hotspot to launch a dinner menu.

“The Rose is still going to be the Rose — just with more services and a better facility. We have some amazing talent coming in,” said Patel. “We’ve been here a long time, and we want people to know we are staying put. Our equity is in the people who work for us and the people who support us.”
