The good folks at Roti Rolls have made it a little easier for us to find them by opening a brick-and-mortar joint right next to Big John’s Tavern. In fact, they’re so close you can walk into Big John’s and get a beer without going outside. The Green Door’s menu includes some of our favorite dishes from the Roti Rolls truck (i.e. the Thurman Murman), as well as some additional (and often exotic) tasty treats. Chef Cory Burke focuses on local ingredients and throws in some Asian flair every so often. The Buddha Bowl with rice noodles, bone marrow broth, braised beef short ribs, and kimchi is a crowd favorite. The menu changes daily, but one might see the likes of braised trotter with sautéed tatsoi and kimchi dusted ricotta gnudi, curried smoked turkey salad lettuce wraps with bacon and pickled green tomatoes, or, our favorite, fish heart pâté. End a meal with some unicorn cookies and fantasy becomes reality. —Eric Doksa DISH (Summer 2013)
