The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version: 
Best chicken sandwich and bread pudding, there wasn’t one bite where I wasn’t oohing and ahhing! The staff and chef are super nice!
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:

After grabbing a drink at Jones we headed to Rove Kitchen and it was the best decision we ever made! This restaurant is simple, but inviting. Its size doesn’t really lend itself to groups (it fits maybe 20 people), but provides a cozy vibe. The small menu constantly rotates leaving only the fried chicken sandwich and hamburger as permanent items. They also serve brunch on Sundays and will start serving beer on tap.

Mon and Tues Closed

Wed – Sat  11:30 am – 2:30 pm, 5:30 pm – 10 pm
Sun  9 am – 2:30 pm

What we ate:

  • Fried chicken sandwich ($13)
  • Rove Burger ($14)
  • Bread Pudding ($8)



Okay, so maybe 3 pictures is a little excessive for one item, but this fried chicken sandwich isn’t like any other I’ve ever tried. This is the definition of orgasmic and I was literally ooh-ing and ahh-ing at every bite. The sea salt bun is made in house and is the perfect pair to the crispy masterpiece that is this chicken. It’s slightly lemon-y and pretty damn amazing! Don’t take my word for it, go try it for yourself and marvel in the deliciousness.

The burger was great: delicious, juicy, and sandwiched between a house-made sesame bun. I am partial to the fried chicken sandwich, but don’t get me wrong this burger is really good. Made with a short rib blend, the meat is super tender and very flavorful.

OH MY PUDDING! The bread pudding was out of this world. The flavor rotates (and, to be honest, possibly the dessert – the chef is very innovative and likes trying different things out) however, if you get a chance please try the bread pudding. The maple cream was AMAZING and the bread was so insanely good, every bite is perfection.I can’t say enough good things about this new restaurant. It is definitely one of my favorite this year!
