Re: “Best of Rochester 2012: Restaurants

I love all the sites that provide insight into good food in rochester. We all have our own idea about what is good. I personally agree that the majority of what people find "good" is pretty sad and unimaginative...but looking at family and friends ( and I love you all) its no surprise! Its great to find a creative place on any level...and any food well done a fab find. Jays gets points for being there 24/7 ,but as for the food...well its quick and edible. Edibles is awesome and the chef owner really puts passion into his food , and cares what his customers have to say...its a find. 2 vines still very good but has lost its creative edge. Rooneys ,sadly, for upscale dining is a no go for us anymore...it has slipped with new ownership, big time, especially at that pricepoint. For another great italian place try otto tommatos, east of victor village...great food with creative twists, generous portions (I can get several meals from most), great friendly family run ( not always great on precise reservation time..its small... but worth the wait). Would love to hear great dessert places...not easy to find these days! Keep up the suggestions folks!

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013: Local Color

Park Ave is... Not... by far the best neighborhood in Rochester, Upper Monroe and North Winton Village are hands down better places to own a home and live in our great city. All Park Avenue has is large old rundown homes split into crappy rentals for short term occupants. Everyone lives there when they are 20 and in college, but people who want to make Rochester their home for long term or their lifetime will find the Browncroft area and North Winton Village is the place to be for half the price,

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013: CITY Critic Picks

Hi La Moore, I just wanted to clear up some confusion. The "Critic's Picks" section is a space where some of City's writers (myself included) can draw attention to a variety of people, places and things in the area that they personally enjoy. I chose to write about Whatta-Bánh Mí's bubble smoothies.

I don't claim that they have the "best" bubble tea in Rochester; I haven't sampled nearly enough in the area to make that distinction. I picked them because I find them really tasty. This wasn't a consensus decision made by the entire City staff, so the "you guys" in this case is just one guy: me.

I'll definitely have to make it a point to try the bubble tea at White Swan Cafe, though. I look forward to broadening my bubble tea horizons, and theirs sounds like a good place to start!

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013: CITY Critic Picks

I can't believe you guys think Whatta-Bánh Mí is the best bubble tea joint in Rochester. They use powder-mix in a home-grade blender! which works if it's DIY. But if you want fresh-fruit, and fresh bubble, and your money's worth - go to White Swan Cafe on South Clinton, $3.

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013: Goods & Services

I still don't understand how Jeremiah's always gets best wings. Small wings with a limited choice for sauces. Dinosaur and Windjammer's beat them for taste and quality hands down.

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013: Best Answers

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013: Food & Drink

Love Rochester beer lovers. Clamor that they want to be recognized as a burgeoning center for craft beer in the Northeast., then lazily select a middling beer (AGAIN) to represent their city. Classic!

One step forward, two steps back...

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013: Best Answers

Dear Rick: Thank you for the clarification! We've already got our art writer looped in so she can check it out soon. (For the record, the votes wouldn't have put it in contention for the Final 4.)

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013: Best Answers

n the best answers section (probably one of my favorite by the way) I saw this:
--
What's in a name?
"Rochester Museum of Art" (Received 20 votes for Best Art Gallery; does not exist)
--
And perhaps my vote ended up going there because I was voting for Art Museum of Rochester which does exist...

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013 Final Ballot

I went to vote in the final ballot, was told by Survey Monkey that I had to log in, so I did, with my Facebook account, and was then thanked for taking the survey. One important step was missing, though. The survey. What did I do wrong? I can't get into it.

Re: “Best of Rochester 2013 Final Ballot

The category for best local dance company should be more diverse. It's like asking "what's the best restaurant in Rochester?" Please consider asking about the best dance company based on type of company or style of dance, e.g., best contemporary, best new dance company, best multimedia dance company, best ballet company, best children's dance company, etc.
