Don't feed after midnight 

It's Friday night (ok, technically Saturday morning), you're still out on the town, and you're hungry again. But oops, the kitchen's closed. It can be tough to think of spots that serve food after midnight in Rochester. But we found a bunch!

  • Scavenger Sunday

    Before the workweek begins, it's high time you relaxed Many people begin a lazy Sunday by meeting friends for brunch, but the popularity of that nebulous meal often means long waits for a table, crowded eateries, and feeling more rushed than you'd like.

  • The meal ordeal

    Meal-delivery services take the guesswork out of lunch hour We've all got those friends who balance their busy lives so well that they eat three healthy meals each day.

  • Taco Tuesday

    Taco Tuesday is a sacred tradition, but nobody likes a stale routine. Put these joints in your rotation.

  • Goals

  • Patios and potables

    The evenings are longer, the weather is better.

  • Ate days a week

    In each of our busy lives, we can all get a little bogged down in routine, forget to have fun with food culture, or forget to eat at all until we're raging. Bearing that in mind, our approach to this year's edition of DISH was to take it a day at a time — dividing the features, spotlights, and tips into the days of the week.
