Roc Italian Restaurant featured an 80’s theme at its first “disco brunch” Sunday (disco, as in discotheque — a nightclub where dancing takes place), and a full house enjoyed the delicious food and drinks, followed by a DJ, live guitarist and live percussionist. The prix fixe menu offered a variety of fine breakfast or lunch option as well as a few dessert options as you can see below. The $50 / person ticket included the meal, two drinks and a dessert — and a whole lot of fun.
