Royal/T Cafe to serve 'Tron'-themed menu in conjunction with 'Tron' pop-up store

November 4, 2010 |  8:00 am


"Tron: Legacy" is one of the most hotly anticipated movie openings of the holiday season, and now that the countdown to its December release has begun, so has the promotional blitzkrieg. Part of that is a "Tron"-themed pop-up shop that is scheduled to open at Royal/T Cafe in Culver City.

The store, which will keep the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily from Nov. 19 through Dec. 23, will feature a variety of high-end "Tron"-inspired merchandise, including jewelry, Lightcycle cuff links, snow boots, ball caps, board shorts and more. You can read about the offerings in detail on the Hero Complex blog.

From that same blog post, the pertinent food-related information is excerpted here as follows:

In addition Royal T, which is a Japanese cosplay café and features French- and Japanese-inspired cuisine delivered by servers in French maid costumes, will feature a special "Tron"-themed menu.  Items include a Reco burger with buffalo sauce, chipotle aioli and fried onion rings; a Lightcycle salad with endive, caramelized oranges and toasted pecans in yuzu vinaigrette; an Identity Disc cake (white-chocolate lava cake and blueberry sauce); and a "Tron: Legacy" high tea set consisting of sweet and savory canapés and your choice of tea.

And if you're wondering what on Earth a Reco burger could possibly taste like, well, so are we.
