Thanks for the comment PixelHustler and, speaking only for my own review style, I make it a point to be as objective as possible and provide a balanced look at a restaurant without glossing over the negatives. I'm glad that came through in this piece!
It should be mentioned that Dogtown is the only place in the city that I've found to serve a vegan garbage plate! A neat meatless take on the original, it leaves you wanting a bit for grease, but it's a great alternative.
I don't know if there was an editorial change, or if it's just a function of me having read a larger number of City's reviews, but things seem much more honest and less "always glowing no matter what" lately. I dig that. Reading restaurant reviews that actually mention the ups and downs of a place are much more useful.
@RocCityFoodLame - Being the same as the meat version is not what Red Fern is going for. It is an alternative for those who choose not the eat the cruelty and heart disease promoting original.
As usual, it is always depressing to read the restaurant review. It's usually completely off the mark of the dour, behind-the-times "restaurant" scene that is provincial Rochester.
The vegan hot sauce mentioned by the "reviewer," as all people in Rochester when comes to anything, are clueless. The hot sauce that is indigenous to Rochester does not contain any tomato or tomato sauce whatsoever. In fact, it is or should be suet based. Therefore, this vegan crap, is not the Rochester sauce they are attempting to pass off to it's gullible gluten free, lactose free Rochester. It's hip to be gluten/lactose free, especially in Rochester. Next year, some study will show Twinkies are good for you. Someone in Rochester will open a Twinkie-based shop.
their ginger carrots are the best!
After 10 fantastic years in the South Wedge we've decided to entertain the idea of passing the torch. Open Face is open and has no intentions of closing its doors! We could never deny you Mashed Pea and Moxie! Thank you City Newspaper for the wonderful words and recognizing our hard work. We've got a lot of fun, new things in the works. Here's to many more years of amazing sandwiches! - Open Face
It's also for sale if anyone wants to buy the business....
But then vegetarians have been found to be less healthy than their meat-eating counterparts. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/…
The Scary News About the Paleo Diet
...those who ate the animal-protein heavy diet fared way, way worse than others: They were 74% more likely to die early than those who followed a low-protein diet.
WARNING: Meat and Dairy Can Rapidly Alter Gut Bacteria and Cause Inflammation
"...the study unlocks a potentially new avenue for treating intestinal disease. I would add that it likely unlocks ways to treat other inflammatory diseases in the body. Heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and even cancer..."
Thanks for the Wimpys Burger tip!
Hi J -- there had been a location in East Rochester, but now Mac's is in Fairport (and Canandaigua).
Fairport?? I thought it was East Rochester
Yum, Macs is the best. Touch on a westside delicacy next. Wimpys Burger basket.
Since first eating at Rocco shortly after the restaurant opened, we've returned time-after-time, never leaving disappointed and, nearly always, glad to have visited and eager to return. The exceptions have been when there have been too many guests or some are overly exuberant, perhaps because of the fare. Or, maybe it was Sly's libations.
SOMEONE really likes the word "verdant."
Yeah, Rosie's might have had more success if their actual hours of business ever resembled what they posted.
I will miss Rumi's. It had the best salmon kebob I've ever tasted and it was a cozy little place. Great turkish coffee too. Alas. Rumi's, I hardly got to know you!
Sorry to hear that Rosie's Hot Buns closed. I tried to go there a few times but they were never open during the posted hours when I went.
My wife and I enjoyed every bit of our meal here, including dessert. The prices might scare the young crowd around the East End, but this is sophisticated cuisine with complex flavors. Don't wait, this is the real deal.
Amazing food, great drinks with a warm cozy ambience! Raphael chats with his customers like guests in his home. Wonderful service, a true tribute to his mother that has el Rincon in Sodus!
