At the Academy, you learn all about the rocket and its beliefs and practices. It’s about all the joy that comes from kitchens. It’s about caring for our friends and neighbors, supporting the local economy, and having fun. We strive to present a menu that reflects the season and captures the spirit of the day. Our philosophy is simple, the highest quality ingredients, in their purest form, prepared with pride and care. This is honest food. Honest food uses fresh, naturally raised ingredients which are locally sourced whenever possible. Additionally, we do not allow the use of high fructose corn syrup or trans fats. Honest food is more tasty, more nutritious and makes you feel good. It is deeply satisfying and should result in coy, if not broad smiles.


Dole and Bailey supplies the rocket with many of our ingredients. We are impressed with their commitment to leading the way in the evolving local and sustainable food model. We believe it’s the way of the future.
In their own words . . . “Dole & Bailey has been a part of the North East’s agricultural heritage for 140 years. We support the revitalization of farming in healthy sustainable ways, and encourage suppliers and growers to engage in these practices. We are proud of our integrity and reputation as New England’s premier purveyor of fine meats, seafood and specialty foods to our region’s most respected culinarians. We are a family-owned and operated food business passionate about this industry and dedicated to our customers, our employees, our suppliers and our community. We are committed to preserving our agricultural legacy, sourcing quality, healthy, great-tasting foods and educating our culinary community about these distinctive products. We are proud of our association with groups committed to the same high standards.”



Local = Better Chalkboard

We serve only Yacht Club sodas. Made in North Providence since 1915, this family-owned business has steered clear of plastic bottles and high-fructose corn syrup. They even make their own flavoring syrups!



farm fresh tomatomarket mobile The rocket works closely with Farm Fresh RI and Market Mobile. We incorporate as many locally farmed and produced items as possible into our menu. We know personally many of the farmers and manufacturers of the ingredients we use and are proud to support their efforts while supporting the local economy.
