Max Rochester embodies a dream that Chef Tony Gullace brought to life over 11 years ago. Consisting of Rochester’s most acclaimed fine dining venues, Max Rochester has diverse restaurants and the most exclusive private event and catering accommodations. Each setting exudes a unique dining atmosphere and offers a food experience for every pallet.
By spending a childhood immersed in his family’s farm and sharing his grandfather’s passion for growing and producing food in its purest form, Chef Gullace grew up learning how to recognize impeccable ingredients. After learning his way around the kitchen and becoming a self-taught culinary artist, he began creating sophisticated flavor profiles before the farm to table movement was conceived.
Chef Gullace has infused impeccable standards, consistent attention to detail, welcoming ambiance, and meticulous service into every aspect of the Max Rochester brand.
Our mission is to transform seasonal ingredients in their purest form into food that is as flavorful and perfectly prepared as it is beautiful, while ensuring every guest a memorable and charming.
In its simplest form: feed people and make them happy.
Our Philosophy: Rochester is our home and Max Rochester is committed to not only being a part of the Downtown Rochester community, but helping the city center grow and prosper.
