The time finally came for Rochester's FIRST Elite Event! Our Elite Squad celebrated their new, shiny Elite '13 badges together at Cure, a trendy epicurean spot in Rochester’s Public Market. The event goers met their fellow yelpers, swapped stories in real life and got to know a fab business – ice breakers included.
Owner Chuck Cerankosky and executive chef Dan Martello concocted the menu featuring sips and treats from their innovative menu of craft cocktails and French-inspired cuisine. “Bleed the Monkey was probably one of the best cocktails I've ever had (no exagg, y'all) - pineapple salt?” Laura W was in awe.
While sipping their aperitifs, Elites munched on a variety of hors d’oeuvres including handmade sausages, bánh mi crostinis, olive tapenades, and rilletes. Suffice it to say, the bánh mi bites were a hit as Kimberly J wrote, “50th rave comment about the bánh mi: [insert here] Damn those were good.” The guests parted ways with full bellies and Chris L, “left feeling really good about hanging out with Yelp friends and about Cure as an establishment.”
Until next time...See You On Yelp (SYOY)
