Rooster’s House of Ramen One-Year Anniversary Party, May 3, 5-10 p.m., makeamericaslurpagain.com.
hen Rooster’s House of Ramen
opened in 2017, it did so to crowds of more than 300 per day — quite a draw for a new downtown eatery. But Springsians were definitely desperate for a place that knew how to do ramen right, and Rooster’s delivered
. Owned and operated by local top-tier chef Mark Henry (who won Food Network’s Chopped
and Cooks vs. Cons
), Rooster’s does playful things with traditional ramen dishes, while maintaining the integrity of the ingredients and the dish itself. The celebration for their one-year anniversary won’t be some hoity-toity fine dining experience. Rather, the establishment (as always) suggests bringing your family, slurping your meal, and having a casual good time. In addition to a throwback menu featuring some old favorite recipes, enjoy raffles, live music and a tap takeover by Matt Bessey of Avery Brewing Co.
