    Chester's Bar and Kitchen

    Located on the Peace Plaza, you'll find the place that has been named the "Best Restaurant in Rochester!" many times. I'm a big fan of the veggie chili and rotisserie chicken myself.

    Pescara is owned by the same people that own Chester's. Clearly, giving Rochester great restaurants is what they do. Here you can get delicious seafood, and great lunch specials.

    Pho Chau

    One Yelp reviewer describes Pho Chau as "down to earth comfort food of the Vietnamese grandma that you didn't know you had." Just off North Broadway with lunch in the $10 range.

    Mango Thai

    I'm a huge fan of Thai food, so you can't go wrong here. In their prime downtown location, it's easy to get to and enjoy a delicious bowl of curry.

    Victoria's Ristorante & Wine Bar

    I'm infatuated with the mango salad at Victoria's and their bread is to die for. If you're feeling like some spectacular Italian grub, this is the place for you.

    With many locations to chose from, it's a convenient lunch spot. Known as the place with the "Best Burger" in town. AND, they have really good free popcorn!

    My personal favorite place to eat. Quick, affordable food that is on point. The classic Gyro and Spicy Feta Hummus are my go-to.

    Canadian Honker

    It's the perfect time of year to order a huge bowl of their delightful chicken wild rice - you won't be sorry. Right across the street from St Mary's, it's a favorite amongst our Rochester guests. Rochester residents love it too!
