Dearest Espada Customers,

As you may have already heard, there are some changes happening at Espada. It is true that Sunday, April 3rd will be our last day serving you delicious Brazilian churrasco. We realize that this has become a special place for many of your celebratory occasions, and for that we are truly sorry. But we have decided to make a necessary change to the restaurant, as well as to our fantastic restaurant next door, the Gate House. As the corporate places move into town, it’s time for us to be proactive. Espada has been a wonderful experience for us, and we hope you feel the same way, but it’s become clear that we have a better use for the space, where we can employ more people, and run a busy and bustling restaurant.

Espada has certainly brought an interesting, ethnic and metropolitan vibe to the Village Gate, as well as the city of Rochester, and we are proud of the contribution we’ve made to the Neighborhood of the Arts. Those of you who are our best and most loyal customers, and those of you who never got a chance to try us, please come see us before we’re gone. We don’t think you’ll get grilled cinnamon pineapple at that other place!

You probably know that the Gate House has a line out the door at most times, and a wait list that is becoming problematic for customers and employees alike. Our little 70 seat café has grown beyond our expectations, and we require major expansion. Espada is the perfect new location, and we’ll be moving the Gate House into Espada’s renovated space this spring. You will find yourself in Espada’s gorgeous atmosphere, with some added classic Gate House décor, booths, and a brand new pizza oven. The main menu won’t change besides our normal seasonal updates, but we will be expanding the brunch menu to include more of what we’ve offered in the past so successfully, as well as adding sandwiches and paninis to your lunch options. In addition, we will be able to again offer a private room for parties and events seating up to 32 people, and a full bar with space to cocktail.

So Gate House fans, REJOICE! There will almost always be a table open for you!

What is coming to the Gate House’s old space? That is still a surprise. After eight years in business, the space itself requires some renovation, and as soon as that has been completed, it will reopen as something truly special. Our focus has always been on authenticity, quality, cleanliness, attention to detail and, of course, delicious food. What comes next will delight your culinary senses, and give you the warmth and charm of the Gate House’s space, while transporting you to a time when food was simpler, portions were reasonable, and prices affordable.

Thank you so much for your support at this transitional time. Please try to fit a dinner at Espada into your busy schedules over the next couple of weeks, and help us go out on a high note. And keep an eye on the wonderful things that are coming soon to our corner of the Village Gate, and all around us in the NOTA area!
