Sancerre Hospitality is a Chicago-based restaurant group with a passion for developing concepts that combine culinary excellence and impeccable service with a sophisticated, high-energy atmosphere to create one-of-a-kind experiences. 

BLVD Steakhouse, the group’s flagship restaurant located in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago, opened in June 2017 to critical acclaim, winning Eater Chicago’s “Design of the Year” award, being named one of Chicago Magazine’s “Best New Restaurants” and one of CS Magazine’s “Most Exciting New Restaurants”, earning three stars in The Chicago Tribune’s RedEye, and being recognized by People Magazine as having “one of the most beautiful restaurant restrooms in the world”. 

Now looking to build upon their success, Sancerre Hospitality has partnered with Bravo’s Top Chef winner Executive Chef Joseph Flamm to open Rose Mary, an exciting new restaurant that will blend classic and timeless dishes from Chef Flamm’s Italian heritage with bold and vibrant flavors from the Croatian coast, utilizing a charcoal hearth and an abundance of seasonal ingredients to bring his inventive menu to life.
