Competing with the Honey Well for the best cocktails in Harlem, ROKC may one-up them on presentation: cocktails arrive in a fake lightbulb, or with a head of smoke, or in a coy ceramic pineapple. The look is novelty, but the taste is anything but silly (love their Bloody Mary, which comes with a layer of freshly shucked clams). Those clams are prepped alongside a nice array of oysters (for eating, not drinking); the busy kitchen also churns out excellent pork buns, and an array of ramen dishes. But many come here just for the contemporary Japanese ambience and the libations.
