Restaurant: Lento Restaurant 274 N. Goodman Street, Rochester (585) 271-3470
Shuckers: Art Rogers, Peter and Andrew Cayer
Quickly becoming famous for its Oyster Bar, Lento features a half dozen oyster varieties on the menu nightly Mon.-Sat. Like all fresh oysters, these should be eaten raw with just a squeeze of lemon. Purists think putting any cocktail sauce on is offensive to the farmers. It’s just covering up their hard work. On Tuesday evenings it’s Dollar Oyster Night – all raw oysters on the half-shell are a dollar a piece. Belly up to the Oyster Bar at Lento for fresh varieties flown in daily. Reservations are suggested and appreciated.
