Red Rooster REst. Week Review..not that I ate off that menu

so just got back from dinner at Red Rooster-
1st- the place is lovely, very happening bar scene, ppl eating and drink there. There were also some tables in the bar area. THe place is very pretty and has a cool vibe. We were sat without a wait once my whole party arrived. They were def. very busy.
2nd- The Rest. week menu- It is not the menu listed online at nycgo. In fact, there are no choices, it has one app, one main dish and one dessert. In fact, some of the items listed on the website are not even on the regular menu. I believe that the rest. week menu was a beet salad, lemon chicken and a peanut butter/chocolate dessert (my friend did order it)
so I went for the regular menu-
I must say, that everything, everyone had was wonderful- The corn bread was killer. We also did the meatballs as an app. instead of main dish. They were good, but never my favorite, but it did come with mashed potatoes, which were very good. I had the steak frites, which was not like the kind I usually get, with sliced steak. the steak was whole and had grilled onions and mushrooms. IT was excellent, especially considering I normally pick off the mushrooms, but I ate them- My friends had both the lemon chicken and the oxtail. My friend said the oxtail was the best she has had in years.
I went easy for the dessert, but it was awesome as they make homemade cinnomin ice cream, which is one of my all time favorites, but hard to come by.
good food all around, I would def. come back ..
anyone else been?
