With the Christmas and Hanuka traffic, lunch would have been a good idea to be open for. Odd for Wegman's to miss this one?
Sounds expensive!! That burger had better be 200% beef, and have a gold plated bun!!

I am glad it moved. Who goes to a restaurant at the grocery store, it seemed like having dinner at Target, or WalMart. I do remember Grants had a nice restaurant-good cheeseburgers, great taste.

OK...why does Pittsford get all of the NEW things from Wegmans?? They are the only store in the area that has NEW shopping carts and now a new restaurant. I'd hate to say it but there are people outside of Pittsford, especially the ones that need jobs. We don't need another restaurant serving a hamburger for $11...that's plain crazy!

I know, I can get a steak veggies and mashed taters for $12 at Friday's. There is only so much you can do to a burger.

Wegmans high prices live on?$12 for a burger you can get any place else for $8.00 or less. Its the same old Wegmans game. Mark it up and screw the stupid public. Yes they are stupid in Pittsford. They will pay $20 dollars for a burger and think they got a deal. Many of the BMW group that shop and live in Pittsford have big houses, big lifestyles, pay top buck at Wegmans and are one step from bankruptcy. Thats why Pittsford gets all the new things from Wegmans Naughty Angel.

Larry from Pittsford please stay in Pittsford with your BMW. WE do not want you type in our town. We all have stayed away from Tastings except for you. That is why it failed. That is why this one will fail as well. I agree with Dale. We all will continue to stay away Larry. $12.00 hamburgers are a little over priced for 95% of us Larry except for you. But hey, its Wegmans and everything is overpriced that they sell. Wegmans over charges the community then gives pennies back. What a great family. So wonderful.

I am okay with Wegmans opening stores and restaurants any where they want. They are privately owned and have the right to choose where they place their establishments. That said, I do believe they are alienating the greater rochester area in many ways over the past few years by placing so much exclusivity to Pittsford. There is definitely a divide that they have created and it may come back to haunt them.

jesus people $11 is not that expensive for a hamburger these days. are you all on welfare? also, the pittsford wegmans may get a lot of attention, but stores in wealthy states (NJ, MD) and wealthy suburbs (northern virginia) get a lot of attention, some of them even surpassing pittsford in sales dollars... pittsford is not the crown jewel it used to be

If I were a private business owner I would have no problem placing my business in Pittsford over the City.... there is really no choice. I would stay as far away from the city as I could. This will not hurt them.

What does the Wegmans grocery store over charge on? People who say Wegmans is over priced have clearly not done any research.... just compare the price of a gallon of milk at Wegmans to anywhere else. you'll see

It's all about quality... you can pay a buck for a burger.... I bet it isnt as good as the $11 dollar one at this place..... Some people like good quality... some don't, if you cant afford it don't complain just eat a dollar burger

Just a note that the reason they don't carry the same things in other stores as Pittsford is "Demographics."

Like I said before in this thread, there is only so much you can do to a burger before quality cannot keep up with price. If I eat a burger it is usually out of convenience of time and I feel I can get a great burger for $7 or less. If I go to a nice restaurant then I guarantee you that it's not going to be for a burger. It's going to be for a dish that I don't usually get at home or at quickie-burger.

Otherwise, I completely agree with you. Let the clientele decide if the $11 burger is worth it. If there are people that think that's a value then more power to the restaurant. If it flies then keep charging $11, otherwise either drop it from the menu or drop the price. Ultimately, the people will decide.
