    That is terrible news.  Here is an article about the closing.  Hmmm, maybe I should try to visit this weekend one last time.

    That's a real shame. Glad we went there over memorial day weekend with Buffalo Tarheel and Ms. Buffalo Tarheel.
    Sounds like the Eck's have earned a well deserved retirement. I'm hoping that someone can buy the place and keep the restaurant "as is" but you know those hipsters!

    Are you suggesting the new owners might put "grown-up beef on weck" on the menu?

    Seriously though, I visited eckl's back in the 90's (when living in Rochester) and had my 1st Beef/Weck and it was not my last....I truly hate it when an institution goes by the wayside, although I am sure the owners deserve a rest.

    Instead of that wonderful German potato salad, they would serve lobster stuffed mac n cheese

    With regard to hipster, I demand to know what idiot took a wonderful word that meant jazz fan and turned it into a pejorative.

    I refuse to use the word as it's plumb tuckered/over-used. Please substitute neo-bohemian.
