Local Chef Bruce Rinehart opened Rococo Restaurant and Fine Wine at the corner of 28th and Penn in 2004. Chef Bruce created an “little island of fine dining” with East Coast style fresh seafood, killer pastas and a huge variety of favorites from the New England area. Over the last decade, Rinehart has created a culinary brand known for quality. The “original” is still going strong, along with the second Rococo location in Northpark Mall.
So, what exactly does East Coast style mean? According to Rinehart and long-time cooking partner Chef Jason Bustamante, it’s “simple with a focus on fresh seafood”. Rococo is known for the freshness of their seafood, including overnight deliveries of specialties like steamer clams and non-farm raised salmon.
While seafood dishes and sustainable sourcing are imperative to the Chefs, there’s a lot of chophouse fare are Rococo as well. Steaks, Pork and Duck are always on the menu. Because Rococo is chef-driven, the menu changes seasonally and multiple daily features are the norm. Rococo also has Vegan and Gluten-Free options. If you want to impress guest or simply have something different for dinner, think Rococo.
But of course, Rococo is best known for having the best darn Crab Cake around - the locally (if not nationally) famous Rococo Jumbo Lump Crab Cake. The lightly baked collection of Maryland Lump crab and secret ingredients sits atop a mild Thai chili cream sauce and is House-made daily. It is a staple for us landlocked Okie’s - no frozen, then fried, hockey puck here.
Enjoy Rococo’s renowned variety of fresh seafood, including favorites like the authentic Lobster Roll and Fish-n-Chips platter. The Clam Chowder (say “Chowda” when ordering) is always a crowd pleaser along with exotic dishes such as Hawaiian Poke, Escargot and Rococo Cookies which are savory (not sweet) bites of various flavors. The Rhode Island Fish Stew, brimming with shrimp, scallops, cod, sausage, clams and mussels in a hearty saffron tomato broth, is not the only indulgent but well-priced.
The original Rococo is located at 2824 North Pennsylvania, 405-528-2824; Northpark, 12252 North May. 405-212-4577. Visit www.rococo-restaurant.com for full menus and more information.
