Chef: Aaron Bolten


Located inside the Culver Road Armory, TRATA has been feeding the people of Rochester for almost two years this August. Executive Chef Aaron Bolten has created an eclectic menu, with such a wide range of options, it’s sure to satisfy everyone, from the perpetual salad eater, to the most carnivorous of diners. One of their most popular dishes on the menu is the seared scallops. Seared to perfection, crisp and golden on the outside, while the inside remains sweet and tender. Accompanying the scallops is a mixture of oven roasted tomatoes, sautéed crimini mushrooms, and lemon sage gnocchi, all bathed in a roasted red pepper cream sauce. The tomatoes add a burst of sweetness, while the pepper cream sauce creates an element of richness to this lighter dish. An added bonus is TRATA’s conscientiousness of their customers’ dietary needs. The gnocchi are made with rice flour instead of all purpose, making this dish completely gluten free. For the modest price of $24.95, I left TRATA feeling full and eager to return for more
