Bites Nearby: Twisted Rooster
The Grand Rapids-based Twisted Rooster has come to Chesterfield Township with Michigan-themed drinks and wide-ranging menu options.
Located at the eastmost end of Hall Road, the Twisted Rooster is one of the latest additions to Macomb's main dining thoroughfare.
Overview: This premier original concept for a restaurant by Meritage Hospitality Group and sole metro Detroit location brings Twisted Rooster to the former O'Charley's off Hall Road near I-94. This restaurant is the first to follow suit in the successful grand opening of Twisted Rooster in Grand Rapids. (Expect to see more crop up around the state.)
Drinks: Our entire Bites Nearby could be dedicated to drinks alone based on the slew of selections from cocktails to shots, from nonalcoholic drinks to wine. Celebrate your home state with Michigan-area themed concoctions. Among the mixed drinks are: Michigan Bloody Mary, Michigan Cosmopolitan, The Detroit Kid (“Red Stag” cherry-infused bourbon by Jim Beam and DeKuyper Michigan Cherry Liqueur with Coke and a cherry) or Great Lakes Shark Water (a blue mix of Sharkwater Tropical Liqueur and Malibu Mango Rum with a twist).
Appetizers: Leave your diet at the door. These appetizers are for fried-food lovers. Maple-mustard fried pickles, anyone? How about flash-fried calamari or tater tots?
Salads: If you're looking to get in your greens, there's house, Caesar, iceberg and other salads to please your healthier hunger. For variety, you can opt for The French Salad with miso-cured duck confit, smoked gouda, grilled portobello mushrooms and asparagus, baby greens and aged balsamic vinaigrette.
Entrees: Families may find variety with dishes, such as Lobster Mac & Cheese (with Maine lobster, asparagus and cavatappi noodles with baked cheddar breadcrumbs and fried Parmesan). There are also sandwiches, from Reuben to French dips, as well as pasta and sirloin.
Desserts: Cookie-ice cream sandwich, ice cream-stuffed brownie, red velvet cake and cream cheese carrot cake. You can also load up on sweets with the Ultimate Sugar Rush, a Twisted Rooster dessert platter that serves up to eight people.
