Upstate NY Food and Beverage Show To Launch Season 2 This Summer


Flash back to a shared Brunch at Lento Restaurant. Amy Riposo, founder and creative director of Rochester A-List, and Casey Bowker, the host of ROConnoisseur met as creatives often do, to explore opportunities to collaborate. Amy remembers “Not only was the food delicious, but a floodgate of ideas opened as we talked about food, new restaurants, little known hideaways, gems in the FLX, and our progressive local food and beverage scene”. A desire to explore and share some of these exceptional places in video turned into an exciting collaboration between Rochester A-List and ROConnoisseur.
