Ronette's Psychedelic Sock Hop

Hours:MONDAY04:00PM to 02:00AM
Perfect For:DogsWalk-Ins

Ronette’s Psychedelic Sock Hop is not a space-galaxy movie musical set in the '50s. It is, however, a fun, dog-friendly dive bar on Leary Way where you can have a noteworthy sit-down meal. You might expect to snack on things like battered cheese curds and mushroom swiss burgers among the neon lights and checkerboard tile. But instead, you can enjoy your pint of kolsch with bowls of fresh pasta and funky-tangy miso sesame caesar salads, which makes sense since the kitchen is helmed by the team behind former Italian pop-up Mixtape Pasta. We’re fans of the creste di gallo that’s tossed in arugula pesto and calabrian chili breadcrumbs, or the sourdough lasagna with fennel-studded bolognese and crispy bits where fontina and noodle sheets meet the side of the pan. And if the citrus tiramisu is on the menu, you’ll want it. It tastes like someone is launching lemons at you with a softball pitching machine, but the creamy mascarpone, splashes of olive oil, and occasional crunch of salt flakes temper all of that acid beautifully.
