Date Night in Pittsford

The perfect location for date night or girls’ night out, Schoen Place in Pittsford is home to lots of delicious restaurants and sweet spots. Whether you’re in the mood for Mediterranean fare, French-inspired American cuisine, or homemade ice cream, you’re sure to find something to whet your appetite along the historic and scenic Erie Canal.

Looking for date ideas? You can’t go wrong with the classic “dinner and a movie” combination. Start your night with a movie at Pittsford Cinemas in Pittsford Plaza (may I suggest Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2?) then indulge at Olives Greek Taverna, a classic Greek restaurant in Northfield Common that provides delectable meals made with the freshest ingredients. Follow up your dinner with homemade ice cream from Bill Wahl’s Microcreamery right next door. The canal path across the street extends for miles, but a short walk up and down Schoen Place is enough to feel refreshed after a delicious meal. You can take a seat on one of the many benches along the path, feed the ducks, and watch the sun set over the water.

No matter which night of the week you venture down to the Canal, you won’t be alone! Schoen Place is a popular spot for both kids and adults to spend time. During the day, the path is littered with walkers, runners, and bikers. If you’re going for a run along the canal, expect to weave your way through strollers, empty of toddlers, waddling precariously close to the the water, tossing bread crumbs and bits of ice cream cone to the many ducks who call Pittsford home. The shops and restaurants are often bursting with people, enjoying the warm summer breeze in one of Rochester’s most charming suburbs.
