ABOUT THE OWNER 

A lifelong resident of Salem, NH Rosemary (Rosey) Bedrosian Najjar was inspired by food at an early age. She learned the art of cooking through classic, first-generation Armenian and Lebanese recipes in the kitchens of her mother, grandmother and aunts.

For 13 years Rosey established and ran a successful hair salon, Sagittarius Concept, but never truly forgot the joy she felt working side-by-side with family in a kitchen, creating those family recipes. She made the decision to follow her passion and opened Rosey's Place, reknowned for its award-winning breakfasts, monthly Cruise Nights and the "go-to spot for breakfast" before Bike Week's Annual Hill Climb.

Durings its 11-year run, Rosey's Place also built a reputation as a go-to spot for catering, due to Rosey's eye for detail, quality of food and ability to deliver a professional service to events of all shapes and sizes. Catering opened new doors for Rosey as it not only allowed her to deliver the level of quality cuisine food that made Rosey's Place famous, but also to experiment and find new opportunities to bring her family's Mediterranean recipes into the mix.

Deciding to make catering more of a focus, Rosey made the decision to reinvent Rosey's Place into Gourmet Bites, a catering service that would continue to deliver the quality of food and professionalism for which Rosey was known, with a focus on Mediterranean and classic American cuisine.

Over the last decade, Gourmet Bites has delivered on that vision, fullfilling the catering needs of hundreds of events, as well as moving into a greatly expanded kitchen and catering facility.

Whether you are planning a wedding, birthday, shower, corporate lunch or any occasion, Rosey and the team at Gourmet Bites look forward to helping you plan the perfect event.
