If you call, you might get this answer: "Hard Rock Cafe, this is Pete—how can I rock you?" The staff here is so upbeat, it ought to be illegal. The upscale glam-diner look of yesteryear's Hard Rocks is out; exposed timbers and brick are in. Upstairs is a 477-capacity club/music venue with Jimi Hendrix's manpurse in a glass case, and upstairs from that is a roof deck with glowing tabletop gas fireplaces. If you'd guess that the food is probably overpriced for what you get, you are a good guesser.
