Abundance opens new location in South Wedge

Abundance opens new location in South Wedge

It was no coincidence that opening day for Abundance Food Co-op's new location at 571 South Avenue happened to coincide with Earth Day: the grand opening of its Marshall Street building was held on the same day in 2001. Having grown to 2,500 co-owners, the need for a larger store and a more visible presence became necessary.

New East End whiskey bar offers late night kitchen

Doc Holliday, a well-known member of Wyatt Earp's posse, was a notorious gambler. In a way, it's a fitting name: Jon Wegman and Chris and Greg Joy are rolling their own dice on a new East End venture, Doc Holliday's American Whiskey Bar and Grill (7 Lawrence Street).

For owner, Photo City is first step toward big plans

Daniel Nielsen has a plan to put on one of the biggest music festivals Rochester has ever seen. The first step of this plan is Photo City (543 Atlantic Avenue), the music and comedy venue that officially re-opened under his sole ownership on January 14.

Remembering Java Joe

There was a phrase heard again and again while interviewing those that knew Joe Palozzi, endearingly known as Java Joe: "That was just Java." Whether people were describing how he golfed barefoot — something he picked up when he lived in Hawaii — or how when he would deliver coffee to restaurants that he loved, he'd walk into the cooler, grab whatever he wanted cooked for him, be it lobster, steak, you name it, and still charge you for the coffee.

Think spring

Even though it may not seem that way — especially after Stella wreaked havoc on our city last week — spring is technically here. The snow may still crunch under our feet, but the intoxicating smell of French fries and gravy will soon be in the air as Le Petit Poutine starts the engines of its food trucks at the end of the month.

Back to business at Tony D’s

In the restaurant scene, closings aren't anything new. It's the nature of the industry: new places sprout up all the time and other locations lose their leaves.
