Last night my boyfriend and I stopped at our local Distillery to take advantage of Local Restaurant Week – we had a good time and found a ton of great deals.
First let me tell you a little about the Distillery for those who haven't been. There are actually three locations in the Rochester area -- one in Greece (which I’ve never been to), one on Mt Hope Ave, and one on Winton Road South. The Distillery is basically a local sports bar with pretty great food. It’s the perfect place for a drink and snacks after work or to bring the family to watch the game on Sunday. They have a huge menu and daily specials – really something for everyone.
Local Restaurant Week
The Local Restaurant Week special featured a dinner for two including an appetizer for $20.09. For our appetizer, we picked the crispy green bean fries – and if you’ve never had them, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. They came with a spicy ranch dipping sauce which was sooo good.
My boyfriend had the Baja-Style Fish Tacos which is one of his favorites at the Distillery. I had the Buffalo Chicken Pizza. I loved that it came with a choice of white or wheat crust (I chose wheat). It was delicious and there was enough to have pizza for lunch the next day.
Crispy Green Bean Fries - $5.99
Baja-Style Fish Tacos - $11.99
Buffalo Chicken Pizza - $8.99
Menu Price Total - $26.97
Local Restaurant Week Special - $20.09
We saved - $6.88
In addition to the Local Restaurant Week Special, the Distillery had a bunch of drink special every day as well as daily drink specials that rotate. Every day, they offer pint and pitcher specials for beer and 2 for 1 House Margaritas (yummy!) Every month they also have a micro-brewed beer of the month that sells for $3/pint.
Here’s some of the other drink specials they have throughout the week:
Sunday – 2 for 1 House Bloody Marys
Monday & Wednesday – all pints of draft beer are $2.75 until 10pm
Tuesday & Thursday – all bottled beer $2.50 until 10pm
Wednesday – Every bottle of wine on the list is ½ price
