three cheers for dining in rochester

Wegmans does everything first class, and that goes for their urban restaurant, Next Door Bar and Grill on 3220 Monroe Avenue, Rochester. There's valet parking, too, for those so inclined.
The space is amazing in every respect. The modern decor with its vast open seating near the chefs cooking and the little nooks, too, are inviting to a festive atmosphere with family or friends. There is definitely a highly charged noise level, so this won't work if that atmosphere bothers you.
There are quite a few sushi choices on the menu, as well as a variety of other dishes all using organic, fresh products. I had a delicious scallop salad on a bed of arugula and pear slices with enough scallops for a second meal tomorrow.
I left with a smile on my face!
