Casa Robles, the newest restaurant in the RO Hospitality restaurant group portfolio, is now open in Roswell.

Located at 45 Oak St. in the former Whiskey Project space, Casa Robles comes from brothers Daniel and Ryan Pernice, the RO Hospitality restaurateurs behind Roswell restaurants Table & Main and Osteria Mattone, and — with chef-partner Woolery Back — Coalition Food and Beverage in Alpharetta.

Casa Robles — which translates to “oak house” in Spanish — features a menu from executive chef Laura Orellana, who was born in El Salvador and trained in Seville, Spain. A 10-year veteran of RO Hospitality, Orellana most recently served as the executive sous chef for Osteria Mattone.

Dishes include nearly 20 tapas and raciones, including albondigas (pork and veal meatballs), alcachofas (sauteed artichoke hearts with Serrano ham and vegetable bechamel) and croquetas (fried cheese fritters with Serrano ham, Manchego cheese and lemon aioli).
