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!
Good review - except for the French headline which should read: C'est bon (misplaced apostrophe). Oops!
So glad you spotlighted this restaurant... they have terrific food (sushi, in my opinion is the best in the city), fun drinks and a great ambiance. I never knew about the happy hour special on rolls, so thanks for that information too. :-)
Compane brick over bistro!!!
Esan is one of Rochester's little pearls. The food is wonderful, the environment is simple, and the owners treat you like you're a member of their family. There are many choices in this area, but only one Esan.
Wow. I am shocked by this review. First of all Esan is thai vietnamese so where rochester, Bangkok and New York meets comes from baffles me. Maybe doing a little homework before your visit may help! Esan is the best Thai restaurant in Rochester run by the most kind and precious family who work so hard and employ the best staff in town. It completely dissapoints me that somebody culturaly inept is doing these reviews. Next time stick to burger and fries!
I appreciate the background info but more than half the article has nothing to do with the review. Very dull.
Esan was certainly not the first. Off the top of my head, the Bangkok and Mamasan's predate Esan and I think there might be one or two more.
I think this is a completely fair review. I have enjoyed the beautiful location and ambiance and of course the beer selections and service are top notch, but I haven't had one outing (of around 5 total) that wasn't punctuated by a misfire on one or more cocktails or food pairings for myself or one of my companions. I love Joe's passion for his work and adore the Tap and Mallet. I believe Tap and Table will do just fine (it certainly seems to be already) but I think it has some way to go to reach its full promise.
I went to Tap & Table a few weeks ago and was a little underwhelmed as well. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't this mind-blowing beer/food pairing experience. People had talked it up so much that maybe it just fell short of the hype.
Personally, I think this review is pretty fair and also hope that as the restaurant goes forward it grows into the accolades that have already been set upon it.
Not-inexpensive... double negative. "Expensive" I believe is the term you were looking for.
