Rokerij means “smokehouse” in Dutch, and this Richardson Browne restaurant embraces grilled meats in their purest form.

There are two scenes under this roof—on casual evenings, step into the first floor bar and lounge and surround yourself with a rustic copper bar, flickering fireplace, and cozy booths; when the occasion presents itself, climb the stairs for the second-floor formality of white tablecloths and glistening candlelight.
