Rockit Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: By day, Rockit is a comfortable go-to for lunch with dressed-up takes on old, familiar favorites. Take, for example, the buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese with buttermilk blue cheese and chives; the cinnamon raisin grilled cheese with melted Brie, apples and hazelnut vinaigrette; and the truffle fries seasoned with parsley. For dessert, try the peanut butter brownie parfait, a mousse-y concoction with homemade brownie, fudge, peanuts and, of course, peanut butter. By night, however, you’ll want to head upstairs to join the rest of the “in” crowd for social hour with dancing and cocktails (might we suggest the Rider on the Storm, a boozy mix of rum, ginger beer and lime?). A late-night menu sates appetites for those who didn't have time to grab dinner before pre-gaming; think cheese-and-chopped steak Rockit Pockits, loaded tots and burgers.
