The Brighton On East is once again OPEN for business.

New Bar Area PhotoA complete renovation of the restaurant welcomes new and long-time patrons, with updates to the menu as well. Great care has been taken to respect the traditions and heritage of both the building and the business, as the new owners, CW Gregory and Michael Amalfi Jr., bring a mix of tastes and charm to The (new) Brighton on East.

Best friends since their days at McQuaid Jesuit High School, in Brighton, CW and Mike have been partners in a number of business ventures since their graduation from college, keeping their sights on a perfect restaurant opportunity in the area. The Brighton On East was just that.

Originally opening in 1861, The Brighton Hotel sprung up around the need for citizens and traders to find a home cooked meal and a warm bed on their travels. Over the years, the original town center of Brighton at the corner of East and Winton was annexed by the City. In fact, The Brighton is one of only a small number of historic Brighton buildings still standing today.

Still, The Brighton On East is synonymous with good food at reasonable prices in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The Brighton On East has had many loyal customers over the years. People tell us stories of sharing lunches and dinners with several generations of friends and family. Some received their marriage proposals here and return to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and more.

Under the new ownership of CW Gregory and Mike Amalfi Jr., The Brighton On East has once again been reborn with new décor, an expanded menu and a well-stocked bar. All menu items are made from the finest, freshest ingredients. Our meats are USDA choice and cooked just the way you like it. Fish and seafood are brought fresh to Rochester daily. If there is something you don't see on the menu, please ask your server. We will try to accommodate any special requests.

The Brighton On East is also the perfect destination after a night out on the town. Chances are it's right on your way home. So, even if you want a full dinner, a light bite or a spectacular dessert, head to The Brighton On East.

We hope you enjoy your dining experience and visit often.
