New York Kitchen is a 501(c)(3) non-profit partner to New York farmers, wineries, breweries, distilleries, artisans and entrepreneurs. We’re a one-of-a-kind place that’s fresh and fun for people who share our love for the state and the high-quality fare it has to offer.
Our mission is to educate, engage and excite our guests in a celebration of the incredible agriculture, craft beverage and culinary bounty produced in New York State. We drive our mission forward through our programming which includes hands-on cooking and craft beverage pairing classes, social events open to the public, in our tasting room and private events and in our restaurant and bar. On top of all that, New York Kitchen dedicates 10+ weeks during the Summer months to serving our area youth in our summer cooking camps. We’ve been lucky enough to work with youth partners such as Wegmans Hillside, Boys & Girls Club of Rochester, Boys & Girls Club of Geneva, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Explorers program and so many more.
We opened our doors in June 2006 originally as the New York State Wine and Culinary Center and in April 2018 we rebranded to become New York Kitchen. Why the kitchen? Imagine this, you are hosting a party at home with friends and family…where does everyone gather? THE KITCHEN! The kitchen is the heart of the home - it’s where you learn, share stories and make memories. We promise you’ll be back time and time again to experience all that is new and fun.
New York Kitchen is the perfect destination for a special event, date night out or just because! Come in for a flight in our tasting room and don’t forget to purchase a bottle to go home with, enjoy a class by yourself, with a friend or bring the whole gang – we’ve got plenty of room to accommodate your group. Looking for a venue to host your next private gathering? Our events staff are perfectionists when it comes to planning your next party – leave it to them to make this an unforgettable experience for all who come.
We are proud to say that 100% of goods sold in our tasting room are all New York State products – this is everything from wine, beer, spirits, pantry items and more and over 80% of our menu items in our restaurant and bar are sourced locally and from throughout the region to provide guests the freshest and most delicious experience possible.
