While not a vegan myself, I went to the dinner buffet and loved everything that was offered. Ethiopian is one of my favorite cuisines, and I love trying all places that offer it. There wasn't too many people, and it was quiet enough that I...More

Best salad in Rochester. N.O. has a warm, home grown atmosphere. It is our go-to restaurant. Love the simplicity and the creativity of the food. The gnocchi is sublime.
