One of the long standing restaurants in Rochester, 2 Vine is constantly upping their game with inventive new dishes. They host a menu with appeal for all palates, a premier wine selection and a vibrant bar scene. While many Rochester restaurants have come and gone over the years, this downtown eatery has remained a local titan ….and here are five reasons why.
1) Bistrotoria Cuisine
Their creative bistrotoria menu has both French and Italian influences with a heavy focus on sustainable ingredients. They have something for everyone here with house made pastas, pizzas, steak and an absolutely delightful Faroe Island salmon.
2) Oyster Hour
This isn’t your typical happy hour. Every Monday through Friday from 5:30 pm to 7 pm, they offer a special on east coast oysters for only $1. Come early if you want some real estate at the bar because this draws a crowd.
3) Remodeled Dining Room
Their dining area was remodeled recently with a more open layout that offers one of the finest atmospheres in town. It comes equipped with a classic island bar space where top notch cocktails are a priority.
4) Chicken Cutlet
This is one of the most coveted dishes in Rochester. The two cutlets come perfectly breaded with a heavy sprinkle of fresh parmesan and layered in a bed of greens. The lemon dipping sauce takes the flavor to another level.
5) Side Patio
The side patio at 2 Vine is a top destination for outdoor dining in Rochester. It provides a magnificent setting that is surrounded by lattice work that is entangled with lush ivy.
