Midtown Eats will take place on the pedestrian walkway that runs along the west side of Tower280 - in front of Branca Midtown.


This monthly food event will celebrate and showcase the incredible food scene that is growing here in Rochester. Each week will feature different restaurants offering small plates (which means you can try a few different things each time) and drinks for purchase, the event itself is FREE.

There will also be live entertainment during the dinner hours and FREE parking in the Midtown parking garage for the events, check out the video they posted on Instagram - it can't get any easier to enjoy Midtown Eats.
