Frolik Kitchen & Cocktails is a swanky-ish rooftop restaurant in the Motif Hotel downtown, and it’s great for any occasion you might buy a special outfit for - like New Year’s Eve, a corporate client dinner, a company holiday party, or something else celebratory. The food, which ranges from salt and pepper fries with bacon aioli to seared scallops to duck tacos, is expensive, and it’s about what you’d expect from a hotel restaurant (meaning it does the trick, but isn’t spectacular). We like the patio for drinks and snacks year-round, since it’s heated in the winter and gets a lot of summer sun.
