News release from one of the best places in Rochester:
Söntés Restaurant expands its farm-to-table offerings by opening its doors for lunch starting Sept. 17th, 2012.
August 23, 2012 (Rochester, MN). Rochester’s lunchtime diners will have a new option for their mid-day break starting September 17. Söntés Restaurant is launching Söntés Too, Rochester’s newest lunch spot, offering not only a seated menu, but also business lunches, take-out options, and delivery services to businesses in downtown Rochester.
“Söntés Too is going to show off a whole different side of Söntés,” says Tessa Leung, owner and manager of Söntés Restaurant on the corner of Broadway and Historic Third Street in Rochester, Minnesota. The menu, which will rotate seasonally based upon local products available at the time, will feature a mixture of classic lunchtime offerings, such as soups, salad, sandwiches, and homemade desserts.
“There really will be something for everyone on this menu,” says Leung, “whether you’re looking for a hearty prime rib sandwich, a light and flavorful mixed greens salad, or even just dessert.” The Söntés Too menu will also offer vegetarian and gluten-free options for guests with dietary restrictions. All dishes, whether new takes on classic dishes or inventions of the creative Söntés culinary team, will have the signature balance of subtle flavor and quality ingredients that Söntés has come to be known for.
“This has been a long time in the works,” says Leung. “Chef Bryce and I have been interested in bringing our commitment to great food from local producers to the lunch scene in Rochester for a while now. We feel that offering sustainable lunch options in the downtown corridor is a vital piece of sustaining our regional farmers and broader local economy. This summer has really allowed us to put that plan into action.”
Beginning on September 17th, Söntés Too will be open for lunch from 11am to 2pm, Monday through Friday. Söntés’ four private rooms will also be available by reservation for business lunches or social gatherings.
Guests are encouraged to make reservations for lunch, particularly during the first several weeks after opening, as excitement over the venture is quite high. To make reservations, call 507.292.1628, visit www.sontes.com or go to opentable.com.
In addition to in-restaurant dining, lunch delivery is available in downtown Rochester. Delivery orders must be placed 72 hours in advance, meet a minimum of 10 orders, and can be placed online or by phone.
