The Lamplighter Restaurant is evolving. Established in 1970 by Nick Castronova, the Lamplighter quickly became a favorite of local Rochester residents as well as out-of-town clientele. Continental cuisine highlighted by Italian specialties make that romantic dinner for two or party for fifty an event you won't soon forget.
In July of 2015 long time employee, Lisa Seifert purchased the restaurant from Castronova, and after some cosmetic changes to bring the decor up to date, while keeping the warm and coziness that everyone has come to love over years, Lisa reintroduced the restaurant as her own.
The Lamplighter is happy to announce Michael Seifert as our new, Executive Chef! Our previous Executive Chef, William (Elliott) Rodwell, has been with the Lamplighter for over 25 years and is now taking a part-time role in the kitchen alongside Michael. Michael started with the Lamplighter in February of 2019. He has over twelve years of culinary experience and was previously the Sous Chef at Branca in Bushnell’s Basin.
