We grill and smoke Midwestern produce, meat, and responsibly sourced fish over open fire. The result? One-of-a-kind barbecue and inspired vegetarian recipes.
Carnivores, omnivores, and herbivores welcome. Local farms, fire-kissed recipes, always fresh.
Best friends since high school, we threw some epic dinner parties over the years.
Our version started with a roaring open flame and finished with the perfect bourbon. We laughed, cooked, and ate our way into the kind of experience we now want to share with you.
Rooks is our answer to creating Columbus' best dinner party right in the heart of the Ohio State University Disctrict.
We are glad you're here. Enjoy.
The character of the wood we burn in our grill infuses every bite you’ll eat. That’s why we hand select much of it from our family farm. We spent more than a year searching for Ohio’s best organic farms and makers of everything wonderful; luckily they were in our own back yard.
Rooks is honored to work with these fabulous local farmers, bakers, makers, and artisans.
