Chef Partain Part of Open Flame Dinner

“Chef Partain served an elevated version of fajitas. He served his grilled skirt steak with his interpretation of Mexican mole sauce beneath it and chimichurri on top. His boss, Bruce Rinehart, was in attendance, offering a helping hand not only to Partain but all the chefs as they plated the food for serving. Partain works out of the kitchen at the original Rococo, 2824 N Pennsylvania Ave.”

Splurges – Wild Salmon

The top-shelf feature at Rococo is Executive Chef Jason Bustamante’s wild salmon (market price): salmon cooked in a bamboo steamer with an Asian glaze and served with mixed seasonal vegetables like snap peas, coriander, basil, shallots and carrots.

“Currently, we source a wild salmon farm off the coast of Scotland in a sustainable loch,” Bustamante said. “Fish farming has come a long way; the salmon eat what they would normally eat in the wild.”
