Finally opening in the 305 after fattening up Broward-dwellers who now look just terrible in their Sig Ep Golf Pros and Tennis Hoes Party '11 shirts, ROK's a spacious gastroburgery that's taken over a substantial corner smack in the middle of Sunset Place, and is dressing the joint up with flatscreens, black leather booths, and brick-lined walls. What you'll be consuming:
The Burgers: All 15+ of 'em are made with 10oz of certified Angus or American Wagyu, including the King James (Kurobuta pork belly, red onion marmalade, brie, truffle aioli) and the short rib/ BBQ/ horseradish cheddar Peggy, named after their English bulldog mascot -- who will soon be writing copy even though the establishment doesn't think English bulldogs can write copy, but only after it sleeps with Pete Campbell.
The Not-Burgers: Although it seems like you'd be crazy to not order a burger, you'd actually be crazy like a fox who has serious weight and cholesterol problems, because they're also slinging bacon-infused Kobe meatloaf (topped with a giant onion ring!), bacon-wrapped shrimp, a pork belly confit BLT, and lobster corn dogs.
The Sips: Until 2a (party!), take down 65 craft brews (Purple Haze, Hopsecutioner, Ommegang Hennepin) along with a grip of cocktails like a dirty martini w/ bacon-wrapped olives, the hot-sauced Mexican Fuego, and the bacon-infused Maker's Rok "Old Fashion", or what Broward-dwellers call "that crusty Heaven & Hell Party '08 shirt -- what're you, 50?"
