On the Road Again, IV


After a wonderful visit in Boston we started the trek home. Along the way we stopped to visit college friends we haven’t seen in a few years. It is always great to reconnect with everyone. These poor people had to listen to all our stories as they were the first people we had really talked to in a while.

After spending the night with them we headed to Rochester, New York.  The plan was to see as many people as we could and eat all the food we missed so much since our move. My daughter suggested Bazil’s for dinner so that is what we started with. As it was 94 degrees that day getting in to this Italian restaurant was no problem. We were actually a bit chilly in the restaurant.

Bazil's - Veal Parmesan

Like most Italian restaurants these days it offers bread sticks and salad to begin the meal. I don’t have a picture of them because we were so hungry we dug right in. I had to order my favorite meal veal Parmesan. The meat was pounded thin and was fried nice and crispy. The mozzarella cheese on top was plentiful. There was a nice small portion of linguini underneath one of the pieces. The pasta was al dente and had a great bite to it. Bazil - Seafood Del Mar

My son’s favorite dish at Bazil’s has always been Linguine Di Mare. When it first arrived he was a bit disappointed as he remembers the dish being larger. But, in the end it was a perfect serving without a single bite left. He used the bread sticks to sop up all the juice in the bottom of the dish.

Bazil's - Chicken French

Chicken French is a signature dish in the Rochester area. It is chicken breaded and dipped in egg. The sauce is made from sherry, lemon, chicken stock and butter. This is what my daughter chose to eat.  I posted a recipe for Chicken French (click for link) if you want to try making it. It is delicious!

Bazil - French Trio

My partner took the Chicken French one step further and got the Bazil’s French combo. It is Chicken French, Artichokes French and Shrimp French over pasta.

By the end of the meal everyone was full and happy to be back in Rochester!

    Where is this great sounding restaurant? Did it use to be another name when I lived there? The Chicken French combo sounds too good to pass up. Let us know how it goes!

      Bazil’s has been there awhile. It is on Empire Boulevard heading from the city into Webster. Right on the bay.
