Modern chefs parallel contemporary jazz musicians in their tasteful re-imagination of classic standards and repeated refusal to embrace the electric ukulele. Absorb harmonious foodsmithing with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary cuisine at Stone Werks Big Rock Grille.
Grumbling stomachs find their flavor frustrations abated during midday meal breaks and after-work chow sessions at each of the three Stone Werks locations. Peruse the culinary playbill to prepare for the chefs' carefully scripted palate pageant, which dazzles audiences with prologues like the crawfish stuffed mushrooms with champagne cream sauce ($8.99). Pizzas are pieced together from fresh ingredients and dough made several times a day; meanwhile, the Portabella mushroom pie ($12.99) is topped with parmesan and provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, and kalamata olives. Let hearty appetites meet their mouthy match in the pan-seared Ahi tuna, crusted with freshly-ground chilies and peppercorn, ($17.99) or the "Big Rock" burger ($9.99), its tasty protein buried beneath savory layers of bacon, smoked gouda, lettuce, and red onions. Diners unwind and replenish empty food reserves in the stylish dining rooms accented with modern decor.
- Food is great. I've never disliked anything I've ordered and I've tried several menu items. I love the mushroom appetizer and think the salad selection here is superb. — Krys T.
- First of all, the menu is extensive with plenty of variety at a decent price. I selected the Kobe burger, in honor of the Lakers. However this burger used Kobe beef and was perfectly cooked, very juicy, had superb flavor, and came with a generous portion of fries. — Craig D.
