Re: “Dining Review: Mac's Philly Steaks

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).

Re: “ROUND-UP: Raw materials

When my beloved Fujiya closed I was heart broken, but was thrille dto find out that their sushi is still offered at their market down the street: Bento-Ya. Definite staple in our house.
We also revisited the Plum House after a multi year hiatus (moved from Park Ave neighborhood to Webster) and we were really, REALLY pleased with their rolls.

Re: “ROUND-UP: Raw materials

We are huge sushi lovers and you did not list our favorite place, Plum House! Their sushi is excellent and they now offer Ramen which is delicious. This list is great though and gives us some new options to try, as Plum House and Shiki are our go-to places! :)

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Setting the bar

Not Visited Yet: Thanks for the comment. It appears that the restaurant has changed the approach to that dish, because the fritters we sampled and shot for this article -- which are photographed at the top -- did indeed include sauerkraut (I personally tried one and recalled that flavor distinctly). But you are right; the website now lists the dish differently and at a different price.

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Setting the bar

The reuben fritters on menu describe something very different from the description in this article ( and the price $ 9.50 / $ 8.50 )

Re: “DINING REVIEW: Osteria Rocco

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.

Re: “Cheap Eats 2013

Whatta Banh Mi foresaked their cheap eats heritage, and what made them great, popular, successful, unique, by increasing the cost of their signature sandwich by almost four dollars. It now comes with one eggroll and a soda product of some kind. As the owner, Jake, said, "it was an up-sale." Not only this, but the sandwich is now limited to lunch hours. He has increased his menu with a confusion hill of sushi rolls, vietnamese soups, and thai inspired appetizers. The new amalgamation is not without its warm surprises. Heaping skewer plates and accompanying ingredients. But, is without the ability to go into this restaurant with your friends and kill some awesome sandwiches on the cheap before going out, or before going in, that makes the whole nature of my sentiments of the place slightly wilt for me .

Re: “Dishing it out

Yeah, Rosie's might have had more success if their actual hours of business ever resembled what they posted.

Re: “Dishing it out

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!

Re: “Dishing it out

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.

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Setting the bar

Tried McColley's last night - food is amazing, prices are good, pretty decent brew selection. I'm hoping to see more brews on tap in the near future; however, there is a good sized bottled list. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. McColley's is fairly small, but the friendly greeter helped quell the threshold traffic jam. The only downfall was our server. She was inattentive, confused, and took more time to talk up her other server job at a different venue than making sure we were set with food and drinks. Very unprofessional. Our greeter, though, checked on us several times and even made our son laugh. We'll be back but we will be sure to be seated in a different server's station, if we see her there again. It's about time the westside got a friendly neighborhood pub like McColley's. We deserve it!
