ANNUAL MANUAL '07: Local favorites 

by City Newspaper readers

Each year City Newspaper polls its readers for the annual Best of Rochester issue. And every year hundreds of local residents let us know what they think is tops in food and drink, shopping, local color and more. Below is an edited last of the 2006 results; if you’re new to town, this list is a good place to start your exploration of all things Rochester.

Don’t agree with the results? Sound off yourself when Best of Rochester balloting begins later this year.
