LOCAL EATS

We went with some friends to Matt’s Red Rooster Grill the other night. Grilled foods are their specialty, hence the name…  I don’t know about you, but I think everything tastes better when it’s grilled.  Although I love to hunker down with a big t-bone, I’ve been trying to steer clear of red meat these days so I opted for the blackened grilled swordfish.  Let me tell you it didn’t disappoint and I didn’t miss the steak…. partly because my husband had bbq ribs that I dove into when I was done with my fish.  They gave him enough for two people!  The appetizers were delicious.  We shared a few at the table to start.  The stuffed poblano pepper was delicious and cheesy, a grilled avocado stuffed with crab meat was fresh and bright, and they have chicken and waffles!  They’re small scallion waffles topped with hand pulled chicken and served with a side of watermelon jicama slaw… my husband said this was the best! Everyone was happy with their meal.  Of course there was dessert.  The Tres Leches Bread Pudding and Blackberry Cabernet Sorbet were the perfect sweet treats to end the evening. The service was great. It’s BYOB, so don’t forget your wine.

I guess we’re not alone in loving Matt’s.  They get a 25 Zagat rating for food… not too shabby.  We’ll be back!
