At last! Red Rooster has been on my must-try list for almost two years, so I was excited to finally make it there for lunch. It was in the middle of a work day, which meant I was on a tight schedule and couldn’t order a bunch of different dishes to sample (like I usually love to do). We ended up ordering just three. The corn bread was a great starter — warm and moist, with just a touch of heat. Helga’s Meatballs were phenomenal! I love a good meatball, and these were luscious and savory. (I was tempted to get an order to go because I wanted to eat them again for dinner over white rice.) The smoked salmon, which was smoked in-house and served medium rare, was delicious.
