Restaurant: Edibles Restaurant and Bar, 704 University Ave., Rochester, NY (585) 271-4910
Chef: Billy Burkle
With Three Heads Brewing and Nosh recently planting their roots in NOTA, the area has become a blossoming spot for foodies. But it is Edibles Restaurant that has taken residence in this neighborhood for years – and it is still going strong. One of the reasons is their absolutely amazing pierogi dish. These potato and onion filled delights are pan seared and then drizzled with sour cream. A healthy amount of caramelized onions are then layered over top that really puts the flavor on another level. For an appetizer, make sure to go with their truffle tots and look over their cocktail menu, where we recommend the ‘gummy bear.’ Also, if the weather is cooperating, the outdoor seating at Edibles is the perfect setting with just enough tree shading.
Edibles also plays host to some excellent weekday deals. Monday is BYOB with no corkage fee, Tuesday is half priced appetizers at the bar and Thursday is 2 for 1 cocktails. Furthermore, they have one of the best happy hours in town from 5-7pm with $6 wine, $6 cocktails and $3 beers.
