NEW YORK, NY (May 17, 2023) – From the palate of venerable wine importer Neal Rosenthal, a new gourmet grocer experience, Mad Rose Specialty Foods has emerged for the epicurean looking to expand their pantry with small-batch, full flavor European-sourced products. Sourced with the same standards Neal upholds in his wine practice – a respect for terroir, simplicity & championing small-batch, multi-generational growers, Mad Rose Specialty Foods’ places emphasis on working solely with producers who cherish their land, upholding regenerative, organic, or utilize biodynamic agricultural practices from family-run or women-owned estates.
Part of The Neal Rosenthal Group’s (NRG) portfolio of food, wine & travel experiences, Mad Rose Specialty Foods was inspired by Neal’s passion and commitment to connect the natural world with the people whose livelihoods are derived from it; from his wine merchant business that started in the late 70s after establishing relationships with small grower estates during his travels throughout Europe, to Mad Rose Journeys where explorers can immerse themselves in extraordinary expert-curated food & wine experiences, and his latest project, Justine’s on Hudson, an intimate wine bar in the West Village, NYC he developed with his daughter, Justine in April 2023.
Each brand within NRG is linked by a singular mission and vision: to connect people to place through all their senses, to open their eyes to see anew the places they think they already know, and to support the entrepreneur and the artisan assuring their longevity & resilience.
Beloved by chefs and sommeliers across the country, with customers ranging from Chef Missy Robbins (Lilia, Misi) and restaurateurs Jean-George Vongerichten (restaurant list) and Joe Campanale (Fausto, LaLou Bar Vinazo), Mad Rose Foods now brings the best European pantry staples from specialty olive oils to jams, pastas, preserved olives, tomato directly to your door via their online shop.

About The Neal Rosenthal Group
The Neal Rosenthal Group highlights the artisan, for without the talent and dedication of the artist, the craftsman, and the entrepreneur, our culture is less rich and varied. Recognizing and supporting the small family enterprise is at the core of the brand. Appreciating the seasonality, capriciousness, joy and occasional misery of our natural world is a precious element of the Neal Rosenthal Group experience; it provides deep insight into the daily ebb and flow of activities in the agricultural sphere.
