Popular Group Opening Another Restaurant in Rochester
If you love The Loop and Five West Kitchen + Bar, you're going to love this news, the brains behind the two are planning on opening another restaurant in Rochester. While the new place will have a different menu, you can expect it to be great because of how hugely successful and delicious their other restaurants are. Other than The Loop and Five West, they also own three restaurants in the cities including the popular Bar 508.
The group is known as The Rocket Restaurant Group with four of the five guys being John Marshall grads. These guys love their hometown, and we love them back for bringing their unique restaurants to Rochester.
According to Jeff Kiger from Post Bulletin's Heard on the Street, the new restaurant is still in the planning phase with a nearly 6,6000-foot barbecue joint as the vision, and they hope to start construction in October. It will be called Smoak and will be built next to Aldi on West Circle Drive. You can also expect a huge outdoor courtyard with a garage-style door. All the meat served there will be cooked in wood-fired smokers. Is anybody else drooling yet?
