Rose Hill encapsulates the rustic charm and simple elegance of the Medina-area countryside. The Seville restaurant is celebrated for its mouth-watering internationally-inspired cuisine and welcoming environment, but it also hides eight acres of rolling Ohio greenery and a romantic gazebo.
“We have a great community here,” says Chef Petar Tomic. “They know and love us for our homemade food, but we know and love them for allowing us the opportunity to interact with them and offer an unforgettable experience.”
The staff of Rose Hill is particularly excited for the summer months in which local couples are celebrating their most unforgettable moments. Wedding season, explains Tomic, is an opportunity to celebrate the joining of two families with good old-fashioned family-style cooking.
His father, Dragan Tomic, first began his career in a Serbian culinary school almost 30 years ago.
“Serbian culinary school differs from its American counterpart,” he explains. “You are trained in both culinary cooking and service, so he was trained to be a server and front house manager as well as a chef.”
After his parents immigrated to the United States, they found themselves catering to the tightly-knit Serbian community in Cleveland. Offer both European and American dishes and an attitude reinforcing that community means family, the Tomics soon found their niche.
“His knowledge and expertise trickled down to my siblings and me,” says Tomic. “Now, I run the kitchen at Rose Hill. As the Executive Chef and Baker, I love the creativity, the ability to serve a broad spectrum of dishes. Our foods are Asian, American, or European influenced, and that broad spectrum lends us the flexibility to offer just about anything as a caterer.”
Rose Hill offers a full-service on and off-site catering business, which equips them with the opportunity to fully customize weddings, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, or other events at their venue. From the plated five-course meal or buffet-style catering to linens, decorations, and cake, the staff at Rose Hill ensure that your intimate gathering is customized around you.
“We seat 80 in our banquet room, which is nestled by a 2200 square foot patio that looks out over our landscaped acreage,” says Tomic. “We have hosted many different events, each one unique. Whether you are looking to host an event or grab a bite to eat, we will treat you like family.”
With a comfortably rustic interior featuring dark woods and chic art and acres of lush Ohio landscape, the sights and flavors of this locally-grown restaurant will delight your senses.
