Have you ever heard of a Supermarket that is also a fancy restaurant, a chic cafe and a cooking school? If you’ve ever been to Upstate New York, then you know about Wegman’s!
Wegman’s is one of the most amazing supermarkets I have ever seen. The produce department is as big as a city block. Between the meat, the fish and the poultry, I have never seen such fresh proteins! They have a whole section for organic foods, a huge cheese section and even a Godiva area. I have never been impressed with a food store, but Wegman’s blew me away!
When I was up in HJMT’s Rochester office, Lisa Gordon, her husband and I decided to take a tour around Wegman’s. After that, we decided to eat in “Tastings,” Wegman’s “fancy” restaurant.
At Tastings, Lisa had sushi, Gordon, her husband, had short ribs and I had “Tuna, Tuna, Tuna.” After we finished our meals, which by the way were delicious, I asked Jen, our waitress, if we could meet the chef. She was more than happy to introduce us to the chefs and to tour the kitchen.”
Jen explained to us that the restaurant features all the food sold at Wegman’s and that it was originally supposed to offer patrons an opportunity to learn new recipes for the products.
Why can’t Wegman’s come down state???
