The Dish: Rockwell Opens on the East Side

New, 16 comments

In other Dish news comes the official debut of Rockwell, the new restaurant and lounge located behind (and attached to) Vermont Restaurant. Conceived by design firm Rhetroactive’s Steve Trowbridge (Tropicana Resort & Casino), the 6,000-square-foot space features three levels of loitering room all designed around a 30-foot tall Coral Tree which supposedly blossoms in the winter. As a whole Rockwell boasts both modern and rustic elements from the angular blue staircase to the rough stone exterior. As for edibles, Vermont's executive chef Stephane Beaucamp has created a seasonal small plate menu that ranges from flatbreads to sliders to buttermilk-brined fried little chicken with most items priced between $8 and $14. Drinks include a selection of interesting craft beers like the Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat, and a full liquor selection with a slew of shmancy cocktails. 1714 N. Vermont Ave.; 323-669-1550; website
