Foursquare Tips

  • Sit at the counter and get to see the extremely talented team at work!
  • Go all in for the pre-set menu, but be sure to come hungry. Five courses is really like 20 dishes, all of which are incredibly unique and inventive, and absolutely delicious. PS no substitutions!
  • Family-style dining with great selections that are not "ordinary".
  • The chicken is amazing!! Also, Aged cheddar rillettes, spicy cucumber salad. You cannot go wrong. Snag a seat at the Hearth!!
  • The food here is outstanding! Very creative, large portions. Try the duck!
  • Sit in the prep kitchen if you can!
  • A relatively casual atmosphere for a higher end restaurant. I would describe the food as luxury comfort food in the best possible way.
  • The chicken sandwich is as good as everyone says it is
  • Roister was nominated for Best new restaurant for the 2017 James Beard Awards.
  • A messy, brash, noisy and primal restaurant where an open hearth fuels most of the cooking and plate presentation only occasionally catches chef Andrew Brochu's attention.
  • The chicken 3 ways is the most phenomenal fried chicken you will ever have.
  • Tickets on TOCK. MUST order the chicken!! And the double daiquiri!
  • Youll want the spunky fermented cabbage with roasted pineapple, the whole chicken served with sunchoke hot sauce, and, for a worthy splurge, the absolutely transcendent uni-bathed Japanese wagyu.
  • Make sure you do a tasting menu and ideally in the Prep Kitchen. Ignore the naysayers confused by a casual concept. The fried chicken with sun choke salsa is amazing.
  • Huge fan of Grant/Alinea/Aviary. Roister doesn't keep up. Great service, super nice servers and staff. But based on their $85 tasting menu, Trenchermen outperforms at half the price.
  • Restaurant concept and creativity of food leading up to final course, but dissapointing finish. You dont go to a Grant Achatz tasting for a Fried Chicken, Grilled Chicken & chicken combo.
  • Beware if you have bad allergies - they are not aware/prepared. Chicken three was was good. Same with the duck. Proteins/bigger plates were much better than the starters. Proportions overall were big
  • Ate in the prep kitchen and was very impressed! Almost like Girl and the Goat in their modern and unique takes on everyday and comfort food. Totally different yet very recognizable. Loved it.
  • The world renowned Alinea team opened its first casual dining with Roister. Roister gives the feeling of being at home in your kitchen while enjoying some of the best New American cuisine.
  • Try to do the Hearth menu if possible!
