Clambake redux: Rococo plans September sequel
Rococo’s second-ever clambake was such a resounding success earlier this summer, owner/chef Bruce Rinehart immediately scheduled a sequel on Sept. 27 t to accommodate those who couldn’t make it to the first one in mid-August. The
The August occasion centered around fresh Maine lobster flown in overnight with staunch support from clams, mussels, “dirty” chowder, corn on the cob and sausage served with Rinehart’s signature East Coast panache.What better way can you imagine spending a Saturday during college football season when both the Sooners and Cowboys have the week off than with a pound and a quarter of lobster and all the aforementioned seafood delicacies, hearty accoutrements and plenty of cold beer to wash it down?
Cost is $60, and reservations must be made with payment since these live lobsters can’t be sent back from whence they came. It’s a small price to pay for a half day’s worth of dining as theater sure to make moot any dinner plans. You probably won’t eat until Sunday morning, which Rinehart recognizes and recommends you make reservations for brunch at Rococo Northpark.
The second Second Annual Rococo Clambake of 2014 will take place at the original Rococo location at 2824 N Pennsylvania Ave. There is space for up to 80 diners, and seats won’t last long. So call 528-2824.
