Steve & Rocky's Restaurant Review

: Living up to its tagline, "simple food, well done," the menus at this restaurant are printed daily, always an indicator of a kitchen that strives to be more than routine. A tasting of three soups, served in demitasse-size cups on a triple saucer, includes two ever-changing choices as well as the house mushroom (called Chef Milos' mushroom in deference to the chef who taught chef/co-proprietor Steve Allen his tricks). The idea here is that people want fine food, but want it served in a comfortably unpretentious atmosphere. Typical dishes include spice-rubbed pork loin with apple cider-mustard glaze and roast duck with wild rice, lentils and bacon. But know before you go: seafood selections outnumber meat choices on most evenings. Lunch sandwiches and salads include chicken salad on sourdough rye and a clever house Caesar with crisscrossed romaine surrounded by heaps of roasted garlic, pepper, tapenade and a crouton spread with cheese. Breads and desserts, all made in-house, include a made-to-order flourless chocolate ganache cake. A number of premium wines are available by the glass and bottle.
