Rooftop 120: Happy Hour

12 Feb

Happy Thursday guys! I don’t have too much time to write today but I wanted to share a phenomenal dinner that we enjoyed this past Friday evening at Rooftop 120. I have reviewed this restaurant in the past and I have never had a bad experience there. With my new job (which is going very well) comes much better hours that allow me to FINALLY be able to enjoy happy hour like most of the rest of the world. Those who know me well, know how excited I am to be able to partake in happy hour at different restaurants. This past Friday was my first chance to enjoy it and I chose Rooftop 120.

WHY would anyone skip happy hour?

Dan and I arrived and it wasn’t too crowded which was great because I like to be able to have a good conversation while sitting at the bar. We were promptly greeted by the wonderful Tyler, who is one of the kindest bartenders I have ever met (besides our good friends at the Diamond of course). He remembered us from our last visit and that made us feel very welcome.  I knew already that I was going to get my new favorite drink, a dirty martini made with pickle juice instead of olive juice. I know that some of you may find this to be a bit strange but I am all about the salt and I’m completely obsessed with this martini. Dan decided to go with something that isn’t always served at every bar, Woodford Reserve, on the rocks.

Once we were settled in with our yummy drinks, we attacked that happy hour menu in search of several different dishes. Tyler immediately recommended the bacon wrapped crab cakes and the general tso’s ribs so we definitely went with those along with the short rib sliders and chicken wings. Clearly, I did not have any kind of healthy eating on my mind. I was so hungry I could have eaten the menu itself.

The bacon wrapped crab cakes were absolute perfection. I’m a firm believer that everything should be wrapped in bacon and kudos to Rooftop 120 for being creative enough to wrap a crab cake in it. There were two of them which was perfect because they were so rich and flavorful that it only took one each to satisfy us.

YUM

YUM

The general tso’s ribs were fall-off-the-bone amazing. I am not usually a rib person but the additional of the general tso’s sauce gave them SO much flavor and they were different than a traditional BBQ rib.

The presentation was also done very well

I will fully admit that I chose the short rib sliders solely based on the fact that they were topped with truffle aioli (I mean, are you surprised?). These were so wonderful and again, a perfect size for something filled with so much flavor.

I don't think I have ever had a bad slider.

Dan chose the buffalo chicken wings and surprisingly I enjoyed them quite a bit. I’m extremely picky about buffalo sauce and this sauce was very unique which immediately made me love it. It had a little kick but it wasn’t so spicy that I couldn’t appreciate the overall flavor of the sauce.

You can never go wrong with the classic buffalo wing.

We pretty much inhaled this food and spent a while after just chatting and finishing our drinks. It was a fantastic start to what ended up being a great Friday night. All I can say is, happy hour is the best concept ever and I can’t wait to take full advantage of it.
