Restaurant: Southpoint Restaurant & Bar, 1400 Empire Blvd., Rochester, NY (585) 667-0100
Chef: Mike Pavone
With its breathtaking view of Irondequoit Bay, the newly christened Southpoint Restaurant has been drawing some heavy foot traffic. Their ‘chef inspired’ menu is a take on New American with dishes that cater to a waterside eatery. One of these menu items is the must have fish tacos. They start with a hefty piece of tempura mahi mahi that takes up most of the tortilla real estate. Then it is the sauces that make the flavors pop with a delicious citrus aioli and napa slaw. It is on the menu as a starter item, but it comes with two tacos there are quite filling. Other items to try are the lentils, oxtail pierogi and pizzas that are crafted with a house made dough. Make sure to get a seat near the windows to take in the view!
Southpoint’s restaurant was designed so almost every table has a look over Irondequoit Bay – but we still recommend getting a seat right next to the windows. The restaurant is right on top of the Southpoint Marina pool club. You have to be a member to get in this pool oasis – but with an enormous bar that is feet away from the pool, you may want to get in the mix.
