Newt's Express preps for opening

Lunch in downtown Rochester today disproved an old axiom. 

IMG_3137 A long line of downtown workers did get a free lunch as the crew at the new Newt's offshoot – Newt's Express - did a dress rehearsal with lots of hot hamburgers for anyone walking by.

The new space designed to become a hot spot for quick burger for lunch sports lots of wood and brick reflecting the classic style of the historic Oddfellows building in which the eatery was crafted.

Expect the styling of the original Newt's with all of the pics on wall, big windows and whatnot. The big difference is expect it to be brighter than the twilight-feeling bar above City Cafe.

IMG_3145 IMG_3123 I chatted with Jerry Zubay and Mike Currie, the guys behind the Creative Cuisine stable of Rochester eateries - Newt’s Bar, City Café300 First, Redwood Room, Culinary Market. Both retired last year, but it didn't stick for long.

Right now and their families have lots of stuff cooking with the new Newt's, the soon-to-open Pi Pizza and ZZest Culinary Market.

On Thursday, they had a booth at Thursdays on First, one at Rochesterfest and a crew putting the finishing touches - like a neon sign - on the Newt's Express space.


Sorry! But when I think of a Newt's Burger, I think of a Marvin's, Dave's, or Dani's Mad Daffy Burger. A Newt's Burger is more than just ground chuck. If they could express my favorites, then I would go. But in the mean time, I will be one less person trying to get into Newt's Express.

I agree completely with Deckman!

Jeff, just thought I would let you know that I've noticed the slow-down in blog posts. :)

Went to Newts Express on Wednesday and it was great! Nice decor, great food! The poker chip thing was interesting.

Now I wonder how long before they are added to the University Square directory...
