~ Rocco's Weekly Specials ~

"Everything is Special, or it wouldn't be on the Menu" ~ Chef Don Dial
Recently a friend came in for Lunch and said "Don, what should I have? Your Menu has SO many dishes!"  I said "Take your pick...each one is Somebody's Favorite".  We're all creatures of habit and often stick to ordering the same thing.  Try something new!  Below I have highlighted some Menu items that truly ARE Special, and they're on the Menu all the time.  Come in and try one on your next visit and maybe it will become your new Rocco's Favorite.
Breakfast ~ Instead of getting the same old Pancakes or Bacon & Eggs, try one of our FRITTATAS or OMELETTES.  They're delicious, come with Toast & Breakfast Potatoes & are reasonably priced.
1)  Rocco's Favorite Frittata is Italian Sausage, Tomatoes, Onion, Basil & 3 Cheeses
2)  Smoked Ham, Cheese & Mushroom Omelette
Lunch ~ Combine your New Year's Resolution for More Exercise with Healthy Eating.  Start with one of our many SALADS. They're big, tasty & healthy.  Or combine a Rocco's House Salad w/ a Sandwich or Grilled Fish.  
1) Fresh Vegetarian Chef's Salad 
2) Marinated Grilled Chicken Salad
3) Rocco's House Salad w/ Roast Beef Sandwich, Fresh Grilled Trout or Petrale Sole
Dinner ~ "Italian Food" doesn't always mean "Pasta" or "Veal".  Rocco's has excellent Fresh Seafood & Fresh Meats on the Menu.
1) Try our Petrale Sole Piccata Sauteed in White Wine, Lemon & Capers
2) Prawns Gamberoni Sauteed in White Wine, Garlic, Tomato & Mushrooms
3) Fresh Local Trout (through this Weekend)
4) For you Meat Eaters, our 14 oz. Grilled USDA Choice Rib-Eye Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms or our Thick Center Cut Cross Rib USDA Choice Roast Beef Au Jus are Excellent, Fresh, & reasonable.
Weekend Brunch Specials
Here are a few of our Weekend Specials for you to try:
1)  Rocco's Special Crab Cake Benedict 
2)  French Toast with Fresh Strawberries & Whipped Cream
3)  Blueberry Pancakes
4)  Joe's Scramble ~ Scrambled Eggs, Spinach, Hamburger & Onions
5)  Prawn, Tomato, Mushroom, Fresh Basil & Provolone Cheese Omelette
Whether you're going Clubbin' in the South of Market Area or plan on seeing WICKED at the Orpheum Theatre (just a few blocks up on Market) remember Rocco's Cafe is close and has plenty of free parking most nights.
