Rooster PM is a tapas/small plates place in Costa Mesa that apparently has joint custody of a space with Rooster Cafe. The owners are different, and at night they cover up the signs and menus for Rooster Cafe and put up their Rooster PM stuff. It’s a strange arrangement, but I guess it works.
The staff here is crazy friendly. They gave us samples of their chili (spicy and delicious), as well as some samples of their fresh-made salsa. The complimentary bread and pesto is standard, but also delicious. The guy saw me taking pictures and brought out a fresh cup of pesto for maximum pictureness. He then asked if I was taking pictures for Yelp and I told him I was taking pictures so I could look at them later because that’s what us gluttons do. Although looking back I should’ve just told him it was for Yelp to finagle a free dessert or something. Maybe a massage in the bathroom? Chicka bow wow…
