Nestled on the grounds of Pheasant Bonanza, Roosters overlooks hunting fields dotted with plump fowl. Chef Aaron Schroder, a hunter himself, draws inspiration from the view, infusing an ever-changing menu with fresh pheasant and other succulent cuts of meat and seafood. Though born and raised in Nebraska, Schroder cut his teeth as a chef at his mother's Italian restaurant in Seattle and then at eateries in New York City, including Mario Batali's Lupa in SoHo. Since returning to Nebraska, he has applied his skills to prepare such favorites as smoked pheasant and slow-roasted pork shoulder. His wife, April Goettle, brings 20 years of bartending experience to Roosters, where she curates an artisan drink menu alongside simple pours of whiskey and beer.
Though its menu always promises something new, Roosters' decor is a reflection of the past. Mounted animals on the walls pay homage to hunting lounges of the 1950s, and the wooden tables, chairs, and bar top pay homage to really old trees.
Open for amateur and professional cooks alike, The Saucy Cook is a specialty food store that houses a myriad of organic, kosher, and low-sodium cooking and baking products, including international cheeses, oils and vinegars, dessert toppings, chocolates, and more.

See the list of products and services online for more details.
Each Candyopolis is home to more than 1,000 different varieties of sweets, everything from Depression-era favorites such as licorice, Herbert Hoovers, and "chewing dirt," to the latest wave of sugary and sour confections (Toxic Waste sour candy, $1.99). Retro sweet teeth sink into Abba-Zaba candy bars ($7.99 per pound), Big Hunk ($1.49), and the Holy Trinity for chewing connoisseurs: Beemans, Black Jack, and Clove Gum ($1.49 each). Imported and domestic chocolates cohabitate peacefully in neighboring bulk bins, while insurgent bands of gummy worms build IEDs out of Pop Rocks ($0.99) and plot a military coup over Candyopolis's ruling class of imported Haribo gummi bears ($3.99 per half pound), which also come dipped in chocolate ($4.99 per half pound). With 48 flavors of Jelly Bellies ($5.99 per half pound), 50 unique PEZ dispensers ($2.49 each), and 21 colors of M&Ms ($9.99 per pound), each year Candyopolis exports a colorful crop of treats directly to the bellies of local children, children-at-heart, and hopelessly misinformed health nuts everywhere.
Alotta Brownies' glass cases reveal sweet morsels of succulent handmade baked goods. The inviting confectionery is owned by New York–trained pastry chef Michelle, whose former stomping ground had her baking cakes for the sweet-toothed likes of Madonna, Mary Tyler Moore, and Yoko Ono. She and her lovingly prepared sweets migrated to the Midwest, where a 100-year-old sugar-cookie recipe mingles with more than 20 varieties of brownies alongside a sweeping selection of peanut butter rolls ($2.25), scones ($2.25), Norwegian school breads ($2.25, only available on Saturdays), and more. Sweets-seekers can also opt to customize a cake, mixing and matching layers with frosting and decorations to craft a comestible masterwork ($24.99+).
