Minority-Owned Takeout: Top 10 in Rochester, NY

All across Monroe County and beyond, the people of Rochester have banned together in the name of supporting small businesses during the COVID-19 crisis. From ordering takeout to buying gift cards to penning rave reviews on Yelp, we’ve taken to spreading our local love far and wide.
