Core Greens, Grains & Bone Broth, a popular healthy eating restaurant with a location in Syracuse, will be opening doors in Webster this April. They feature hearty bowls that are complete meals in themselves featuring, as you might expect from their name, greens, grains and bone broths. All ingredients are free of GMO’s, trans fats, artificial colors, sweeteners and other artificial additives and the chicken and steak are sustainably raised, and never ever given antibiotics or hormones. They buy local, prepare local, and focus on what’s in season. Healthy eating restaurants is a growing trend, one we hope booms in Rochester.
Well it took longer than expected to open, and summer turned into January, but opening day has arrived! Joining the growing craft beer movement, Griffs Brewery opened in January in Spencerport, NY. Focusing on brewing smaller batches to increase variety, Griffs features a custom built, wood-themed atmosphere, with every brew prepared on location with local ingredients.
The East End welcomed The Alley (formerly One) to the neighborhood when it opened in December with a menu featuring a wide selection of specialty pizzas and sandwiches in a casual atmosphere. The beautifully redone space is a great place to stop before or after the many event happening in the city, or just to stop in for some fun listening to some of your favorite tunes from the ’80’s.
Mullers Cider House is now open. Located on University Ave. near Joe Bean Coffee, the craft hard cider bar serves local and imported hard ciders and food. A natural addition to our famous apple growing area. The staple food item is gourmet kettle corn. Mullers had a specialized kettle corn cooker constructed for its space and they plan to feature a specialty kettle corn creation for each season. The menu includes simple salads, soups and panini (with numerous gluten-free options).
