Fun post: Fav dishes at Rokerij/Richardson's?

Going to Rokerij with my fam this weekend. Really looking forward to it, especially since I haven't had a Richardson's fix since the fire. What are the CHers favorite Richardson's or Rokerij dishes? Any special ordering (aka insider orders that aren't posted or on the menu?)

Favorite cocktails to go with? Just looking for a fun post, its been a little slow on the boards lately.

  1. Carne Adovada. I still have dreams of the plate I had at Dick's Hideaway.

    1. My favorite right now is the Rokerij Combo which is 2 chicken enchiladas, an eggs bene with the jalepeno hollandaise and asparagus, though I usually sub corn for the asparagus. Very good combination of pork and chicken flavors from the cured pork loin they use on the bene.

      I also try to order the Chicken Cordon Blue that is no longer on the menu often. It also uses grilled chicken and the pork loin, but covered in green chili, jack cheese, and all melted together. delicious, but they will only do it for me when they're slow now, since it is off the menu.

      Consider going for brunch. less busy and the breakfast dishes are excellent.

      1. The bacon-wrapped shrimp (from either menu) is a gimme, and the carne adovada is a dreamy plate of smokiness.

          Bacon wrapped scallops look killer too.

        2. We went to Rokerij recently for the first time to meet visiting Chowhound Finlero. We didn't have entrees, but shared a bunch of small plates at Happy Hour (along with three bottles of vino - all bottles were 50% off on a Tuesday). Favorites were the blue crab tostadas, prime rib sliders, relleno du jour, and New Mexican sausage with grilled onions.

            those sausages are killer. You can buy them bulk from Schreiners and do them on the grill at home as alternative to brats. Might have to stop by there this morning

              Yeah, the parts of the evening I remember were a lot of fun. Not a bad bite to be had, really, but my votes would be for the sliders and the sausages.

            3. I love the Roasted Garlic Plate ( just be sure everyone with you eats some!) Will also concur with Firenza00... The Carne Adovada is crave worthy.
