Wegmans Food Markets-owned restaurant Next Door will serve lunch from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday, in response to frequent requests since it first opened in December 2009,
“We’ve taken our most popular dinner selections and combined them with new dishes to create a menu that offers fresh, affordable choices for midday dining,” said executive chef Chris Brandt. “So, whether you’re meeting a friend or joining co-workers for a quick lunch, or celebrating a special occasion, we won’t disappoint.”
The Rochester, N.Y.-based restaurant’s casual, relaxed décor offers both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as ringside seats at the Sushi Bar, where food is prepared in full view. Next Door is named for its location across from the Wegmans Pittsford location.
The new lunch menu includes sushi, salads, soups, sandwiches (with a side), and specialty entrees, as well as wine and beer.
Current promotions at the eatery include a sushi-and-cocktail menu inspired by the cast and crew of “Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which is currently filming in the area. Offered from April 30 through May 9, the dinner-only Spidey Menu includes the Radioactive Spider Roll, made with crispy flash-fried soft shell crab, seasoned koshakari rice, avocado and spicy jalapeno citrus sauce; Doc Oshi-Zushi, a pressed octopus sushi; and the Electric Eel Roll, featuring togarasihi spice, pickled cucumber, avocado on the inside, and koshakari rice and barbecued catfish on the outside.
Additionally, Next Door offers three private rooms for parties of 12 to 75, available to reserve for dinners, luncheons and business meetings. The largest, the Test Kitchen, can accommodate a seated lunch for 40 guests or a more casual event for as many as 75. The room is equipped with WiFi and other amenities such as teleconferencing and a high-definition projection screen with LCD.
“If you haven’t been to Next Door before, but always wanted to try it, here’s your chance.” added Brandt. “It was designed to be approachable and comfortable. And the food speaks for itself, or as we often say, ‘the best of Wegmans, made fresh for you.”
Family-owned Wegmans operates 81 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
