The Pittsford Grill's chefs dress a menu of American steakhouse dishes in gourmet garnishes to promenade with a wide variety of wine selections. The Strip ($22) is 12 ounces of USDA Choice lack Angus strip steak slathered in gorgonzola cream—or your choice of four other sauces—that when allied with a half-pound of king-crab legs ($15), governs a formidable land-and-sea dynasty, impregnable by tofu rivals. The dry-rubbed salmon, dappled with avocado and lime mousse ($19), pairs well with a side of wild-mushroom risotto and a glass of citrus-tinged Rex Goliath pinot grigio ($6). The Artichokes French ($13+) reads a bedtime story to spinach and artichokes snuggled under a blanket of lemon-butter wine sauce in a bed of angel-hair pasta.
Housed in a renovated barn erected in 1858, Pittsford Grill's rustic wooden backdrop juxtaposes its Victorian–style décor and contemporary artwork by Gustav Klimt. The upper dining room crescendos into a lofty ceiling from which cascading chandeliers glimmer, as starburst light fixtures softly shine over booths for haiku interpretations of the menu set to live piano or jazz music Tuesday–Saturday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Patrons can bask in the glow of the main floor's giant stone hearth, head to Lorelei's Lounge for dancing every Friday and Saturday from 9:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., or gulp fresh air on the outside deck seating.
