EaterWire: Rocco's Tavern, Sweet Ride Dessert Truck

New, 10 comments

STUDIO CITY— The owners behind 901 Bar & Grill and Rocco's Italian Kitchen will premiere their next restaurant Rocco's Tavern on Ventura Blvd. September 9. Look for NY-inspired family-style Italian fare headed by chef Tony Lia who spent the last 20 years at Frankie's on Melrose, another hearty Italian enclave. The NY theme continues through the indoor/outdoor space as walls are garnished with photos of Jake LaMotta and the New York Yankees, and exposed brick walls plus industrial lighting add additional East Coast flourishes. For Valley inhabitants this will be a solid spot for that NY fix, but for Westsiders, no need to travel with NY+C Pizza's imminent opening. [EaterWire]

OUT AND ABOUT— Yet another mobile food vendor, this time in the desserts category. Sweet Ride a rolling dessert cafe "taking sweets to the streets" is set to start serving this fall. For now, follow them on Twitter and view the menu after the jump. [EaterWire]
