Rooster's Uptown

$$$$

Mouthwatering simplicity is the essence of the Rooster's Uptown. The space rustic and refined, thanks to worn-wood tables, booths, and bars illuminated by candlelight, and its food follows suit with a wood-fired grill and a seasonal menu. Given its name, you won't be surprised to find this spot's specialty is chicken (doused in herbs, roasted), but a wide array of other mains like duck, pork chop and steak are there to match your side of buttery steamed spinach, succotash or fire roasted beets, too.
