Delmonico's Italian Steak House wins Rochester Rocs!

We tallied your votes for the best steakhouse in Rochester and the winner is Delmonica’s Italian Steakhouse.

From the Frank Sinatra room to the Frank Sinatra booth, Rochester Rocs winner Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse definitely did it his way.

The caricatures on the wall help add to different themes in each room. And it’s the fun and intricate decorations and great service that managers say keep customers coming back.

Assistant General Manager Emily Streb said, “We have regular guests that come for happy hour every single day and when they're not here, we worry about them sometimes they even call us to let us know they are not coming in."

General Manager Gabe Basalla said, “A few times a year they drive from Long Island to Rochester to eat at Delmonico’s and they often turn around and drive right back to Long Island.”

Meet Champ!

Meet Champ!

Poor Champ has been at Lollypop Farm more than once in his life, most recently because his owner could no longer afford to care for him. He is an 11-year-old Chow Chow mix who will stick to you like Velcro - he loves being around his owner. He likes back scratches and chin rubs, and will gladly keep you company any night of the week! He has a great smile, too. Lollypop Farm recommends Champ go to a home with kids age 10 or older, and he needs to meet any dogs already in the home. Lollypop Farm is celebrating Spring Break with 25% off adoption fees on all cats and dogs through Saturday the 19th. Champ is also eligible for the Seniors-for-Seniors program so approved adopters age 60 or older can bring him home for free. To find out more about Champ, call 223-1330 or visit him at Lollypop Farm at 99 Victor Rd., Fairport 14450. Lex, our "Friday's Friend" from last week, is still available!

News10NBC obtains mug shot of Dawn Nguyen

News10NBC has obtained the mug shot of Dawn Nguyen from the Monroe County Jail.

Nguyen was found guilty on Tuesday of falsifying business records and taken into custody until her sentencing in May because the judge felt she was a flight risk.

Prosecutors say Nguyen lied on the paperwork she filled out in order to purchase two guns for convicted felon William Spengler. Spengler killed firefighters Mike Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka and injured two others on Christmas Eve 2012 in West Webster.

Nguyen is looking at a range from probation to four years in state prison. She also is facing charges in federal court and could be sentenced to more time behind bars if convicted there.
