So, where did the winner of the US Open, Justin Rose, celebrate last night? Owner, Kim Strengari got the call moments before Rose’s actual win, that Rose and his party would be coming to Gypsy Saloon after the game. Rose has been dining at Kim Strengari and Marianne Gere’s other restaurant, Stella Blu, all week. And since Stella Blu is closed on Sunday, they decided to try their other Conshohocken spot, Gypsy Saloon.
“Justin Rose was so humble and gracious,” says Gypsy Saloon owner Kim Strengari. “A real class act!”
Strengari and Gere sent over a bottle of champagne, as did another customer. They stayed until 2:00am and left a very generous tip. Rose told Strengari that he loves Philadelphia, the hospitality and the course, and wants to come back to see more of the city.
And from Zagat…
Kim Strengari and Marianne Gere got the call that Rose and crew would be coming in just moments before the actual win, and were thrilled but not surprised. Rose had been dining at the pair’s other restaurant, Stella Blu, all week long. But Stella is closed on Sundays, so Gypsy Saloon got the honor.
Strengari and Gere sent a bottle of champagne over to Rose and his party of six, which included his wife, Kate, as did another customer. They stayed until 2 AM, and left a generous tip. “He was so humble and gracious,” Strengari says. “A real class act!”
One of those things is just like the other.
Justin Rose seems… nice. I like him. But for real, his wife looks like Taylor Swift.
