Ryan Jennings is a Rochester, NY chef, and he discussed his favorite food spots in the Flower City with the local Democrat & Chronicle. It’s always good to get the point of view of someone in the biz, and his recommendations ring true in our ears. Chef Jennings says the meat market Fair Game Food’s signature pastrami sandwich should be a Rochester rite of passage. It can be found in the Rochester Public Market, which, as well, gets a high recommendation from the chef (and from us – it’s a great old-fashioned indoor and outdoor city market).
Find great pho at Pho Duong Dong and the best fried chicken in town at ButaPub (so named because it’s nothing “but a pub”). Of course, he puts in a good word for one of our favorite spots in Rochester, the Swan Market, where you can pick up house-made wursts or settle in for the German grocery store lunch of your dreams, at rock-bottom prices.
