Rocket to Venus: smoker's delight

Restaurant Review

January 21, 2007|By Elizabeth Large | Elizabeth Large,Sun Restaurant Critic

Food: **1/2 (2 1/2 stars)

Service: *** (3 stars)

Atmosphere: ** (2 stars)

Probably nowhere else in the universe could Rocket to Venus exist except in Hampden.

The new bar-restaurant has a funky sci-fi decor; a hip, well-pierced staff, and a clientele that doesn't look old enough to vote, let alone drink. But its menu features pierogis and grilled-cheese sandwiches as well as ceviche and walnut and sage pesto. And those black-clad servers are so friendly you wouldn't be surprised if they called you "hon." This is Hampden, after all.
