Much like the enigmatic, pterodactyl-like creature that occasionally battled and sometimes helped Godzilla, Rodan’s pan-Asian cuisine is delightfully unpredictable. The chefs draw inspiration from culinary traditions throughout Asia and layer the various flavors into complex tastescapes, filling bao with braised chicken and chipotle-spiced peanut sauce, spooning gelato alongside tempura-fried banana splits, and serving popcorn shrimp with thai chili oil, scallions, lemon zest, tempura crisps, parmesan, and a sweet onion vinaigrette. To complement the cuisine, Rodan mixes specialty cocktails with everything from Japanese whiskey to lychee fruit, and pours a sake selection that rivals that of any Japanese izakaya.
The kitchen stays open until midnight, allowing guests to enjoy a quick late-night bite at one of the modern, wooden booths. Meanwhile, live DJ sets keep toes tapping to soul and funk.
