One of the most highly regarded and influential American chefs will launch his next restaurant in Rochester. WXXI News has confirmed that Richard Reddington has finalized a deal to take over the space formerly occupied by 2 Vine on Winthrop Street in Rochester. Reddington was the chef and owner of Redd in Napa Valley, which closed in October after a 13-year run.
Redd was awarded a coveted Michelin star from 2008 to 2013. His Rochester restaurant will also carry the name Redd, and when it opens in April, Reddington will become Rochester’s only Michelin-star chef in the city’s history.
