Radio Social Rochester
Our team and any outside vendors or event performers will be required to be fully vaccinated as well. You have to wear masks unless you’re seated to eat and drink. Dan Morgenstern, who previously was a managing partner of Clover Lanes in Brighton, formed a local team to create Radio Social after Clover Lanes closed in 2016.
Morganstern says they plan to feature classic Nintendo games on monitors that are not being used. Hours or services may differ due to COVID-19. Please contact the business directly to verify hours and availability. Radio Social is a place to relax and have fun while exploring dishes that highlight what the farms in our backyards have in season and a cuisine from a culture half a world away. On my next trip, I’ll be sure to try skee-ball and the giant Jenga — both of which I was eyeing after rolling too many gutter balls.
In a comprehensive renovation, the bowling alley got a new look, complete with Scandinavian design furniture. With their sleek, elegant design, Form barstools seam the bar area of the newly opened Radio Social, while Form chairs offer seating to hungry bowlers in the restaurant area. Located in North Winton Village, the food is as diverse as the space — a melting pot of activities carefully designed to reflect subtle and modern aesthetics. As an homage to the building’s original use as a radio factory, colorful vintage receivers adorn a wall near the entrance. The vast space is divided into thirds, two of which, are bowling and games and the other for food and drink.
When I complained about not have the food replenished she said that the kitchen was slammed as they were very busy. They knew for months ahead that they would have 80 guests to feed and had the menu well ahead of time. Over half of the food that was ordered and payed for didn’t come out until 2 hours after we arrived. Most everyone had had desert by then and were ready to leave.
From the large plates menu, pastrami-spiced carrots ($15) impressed for their vibrant orange hue. Whole petite carrots with stems were cooked until charred, concentrating their flavor while maintaining a slight firmness. Beneath the root vegetable, pearls of couscous were prepared as risotto creating a luscious texture. Orange cream spooned over top brought a burst of citrus, offsetting characteristic pastrami brininess. The kubaneh “pull-apart” bread ($12) with dips was wonderful.
