Cheap Drinks: North Winton Village

Cheap Drinks: North Winton Village

The North Winton Village neighborhood has seen a resurgence over the last few years, with young professionals migrating to the area in droves. If you've driven past The Winfield Grill lately on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon and seen the hordes of tipsy 20- and 30-somethings pouring out of there after brunch, you know what I'm talking about.

A new lion in the West

When a new brewery opens, it can often feel like it popped up out of nowhere. From the outside, we don't usually see the intense planning and preparation that goes into starting a company.

Mexico comes to Corn Hill

No matter where the owners of Paola's Burrito Place end up, the Rochester public seems to find them. The family's new venture, Mi Barrio Burrito Place (319 Exchange Boulevard), opened in June of this year.

Swillburger opens seafood and hotdog offshoot in Pultneyville

When Brian Van Etten and Jeff Ching visited the Landing at Pultneyville last spring, they immediately saw the potential in the distinctive red building with its lakefront location. Van Etten and Ching co-own the South Wedge burger joint, bar, and video arcade The Playhouse/Swillburger — Ching also owns the Owl House on Marshall Street — and they envisioned two new restaurants in the space.

Finding a coastal tavern on University Ave

Trey Yager, owner and executive chef at the new Seven Seas Tavern (58 University Avenue), grew up on the coast of Florida and made his mark there in the restaurant and seafood industry. "I've made my whole career in seafood," he says.

Practicing WhichCraft

Riding a recent wave of new Rochester breweries, WhichCraft Brews (1900 Empire Boulevard) joined the local craft ranks when it opened on July 8. The brewery was the brainchild of owners Chris Prince, John Moscato, Scott Baxter, and Lori Weber-Baxter.

Round-up: nightcaps and nibbles

It's 9 p.m. on a Wednesday, and you've just gotten out of a movie or show, but no one's ready to call it quits just yet. While it may not be the right evening to paint the town, a slice of something sweet and a glass of wine might strike the balance between opening the whole bottle and going to bed early.

A hideaway no longer

There is a new entrance to Hogan's Hideaway (197 Park Avenue) closer to the thoroughfare on Park Avenue. It's just one of many changes that new owners Max Gordon, Maurice Kusminsky, and Drew Nye have made to once again make Hogan's a destination on Park.
