Teen mentorship at the core of New City Café

Teen mentorship at the core of New City Café

New City Café on Parsells Avenue serves a range of espresso-based drinks, filter coffee, and locally-made pastries — but the real purpose of New City is behind the scenes. The café, which opened on June 9, currently employs three teenagers as part of its mission to mentor local youth, and Executive Director John Lee hopes that number will only rise.

Cheap Drinks: Neighborhood of the Arts

In this new series, CITY will test how far a cheap night out will take you in various Rochester neighborhoods. We’ll report back on where we went, what we drank, and how much we spent. Keep an eye out for more of these Cheap Drinks segments over the coming months

Bringing the funk, bringing the waffles

When waffle kingpin Adam Gold heard that the former Water Street Music Hall was available, he got on the blower with a quickness. Roughly seven months later and Funk 'N Waffles — Gold's eclectic venue featuring live music and a kitchen serving up a large selection of sweet and savory waffles — was here.

Vegan doughnut shop Misfit opens on Monroe Ave

When Jennifer Johnson opened the doors of Misfit Doughnuts and Treats to the public for the first time on May 13, her entire stock of vegan desserts was wiped out in a little under three hours. With doughnut flavors like lemon poppy seed, cannoli, s'mores, and blood orange white chocolate, Johnson is aiming for vegan-friendly decadence, and maybe convince some skeptics along the way.

Monthly pop-up restaurant series starts in Midtown

EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to inclement weather, the first Midtown EATS event has been postponed until Thursday, June 1. A new dining event is joining the summer lineup.

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.
