a little rochester story

I left Rochester to come home to New Orleans three years ago
yesterday. In honor of that, I have a little story for y'all.

So, New Year's day I'm at my grandmother's house for her usual
big party. I'm sitting around drinking wine and talking about
food with some family friends, one of whom used to be a salesman.
We get to talking about how people in some parts of the country
have no idea how to cook seafood. "Yeah, so I was at this
meeting, up north somewhere, and there was this big pile of
boiled shrimp on the buffet. So I took a bunch, and they had
no flavor in them at all, and they were cold!" Turns out he
was in Rochester. He complained to the waiters, and the chef
came out saying "Ok, where's the guy from Louisiana?" and fixed
him up a sauce to try to compensate for the flavorless shrimp.

are you referring to rochester, ny? Reason why I ask is b/c I am originally from rochester and just relocated to covington a few months ago.
