Bark creates more than 10 different lip-smacking dogs using locally sourced ingredients, such as bacon from S. Wallace Edwards & Sons and a pork-and-beef blend made at Hartmann’s Old World Sausage in Rochester. Your Groupon's triumvirate of tubular meat lets you start simple with the snappy classic dog ($4.25)—a plain griddle-roasted dog basted in a concoction of house-made smoked lard butter—before spicing things up with the chili-cheese dog ($6.25) and the kraut dog ($5), which comes topped with mustard and sauerkraut aged in oak barrels. Customers who like their hot-dog toppings the way they like their heads in jars—soaked in brine—will savor the pickle dog's ($5.75) crown of mustard, mayo, and house pickles. Bark also offers herbivores a veggie dog ($7) snugly swathed in a roasted mushroom-chickpea topping with pickled garlic mayo.
If you wanted a McDonald's burger in the spring of 1955, you needed to travel to Des Plaines, Illinois, and find the burger joint with the golden arches on the outside. Today, however, those arches mark more than 34,000 locations in 118 countries. Equally ubiquitous are the items on the restaurant's menu, which include the Chicken McNugget, the Happy Meal, the Egg McMuffin, and the Big Mac. In recent years, the restaurant has introduced healthier eats, such as its Premium Salads and Premium McWraps.
As it serves customers across the world, McDonald's continues to focus on local communities, whether it's through the company's Ronald McDonald House Charities or its quest for sustainability.
From hotdogs to souvlaki sandwiches, Greek to Me's eclectic menu combines the potency of Greek flavors with the familiarity of American tastes. All items are cooked to order and, like subpoenas, the vast majority of breakfast items are served all day long. Fuel the morning with french toast, pancakes, or belgian waffles ($6.49), or take on the ultimate omelette, an egg blanket generously stuffed with green peppers, onions, cheddar cheese, bacon, sausage, ham, and gyro meat, all resting under a shimmering coat of sausage gravy ($8.79).
A portmanteau of “mozzarella” and “pepperoni” gave Marvin Mozzeroni’s its playful name, but the origins of the restaurant itself are rooted in New York. The pizzeria was founded by two Rochester natives in 2004 as Starving Marvin's Pizza before they changed the name in 2007 when they turned their single eatery into a franchise. To this day native New Yorkers own and operate the five locations found throughout the state, including their two new locations in Henrietta and Greece.
The emphasis here is on their numerous specialty pizzas, baked in a brick oven and made fresh daily with hand-tossed dough. They come with a thick or thin crust and homemade red or white sauce, and can be ordered whole or by the slice. The menu also features other Italian food, including calzones and chicken parmigiana, as well as a mix of American-style classics such as hoagies, cheeseburgers, wings with homemade sauce and bleu cheese, and hot dogs. Those with food allergies can opt for gluten-free pizza.
Star chef and restaurateur Peter Xaviar Kelly opened his first restaurant, Xaviar’s in Garrison, when he was 23. Since then he has battled Bobby Flay, cooked at the James Beard House, introduced Anthony Bourdain to the Hudson Valley's bounty, and opened more restaurants. At his latest, Xaviars X2O on the Hudson, the Zagat-rated menu mixes Asian embellishments with Italian and Spanish touches and traditional French techniques. Thai barbecue, for example, spices the grilled portuguese octopus appetizer, and a brown-sugar-cayenne crust plays off the béarnaise sauce that tops aged-and-grilled cowboy rib eye steaks. In the Dylan Lounge, chefs slice sushi rolls into edible artworks such as jalapeño hamachi with pumpkin-seed oil.
An active turn-of-the-century Victorian pier hosts Xaviars' dining room on the Hudson. Vaulted 25-foot ceilings take support from three walls of glass that grant sweeping views of the Tappan Zee and George Washington Bridges, pepper dinners with sunsets over the Palisades, and allow guests to keep eyes out for approaching giants. Inside, dark-wood furniture, mod lighting, and stark white tablecloths set an elegant stage for edible performances.
