Bedrock, on Hamburg shore, offers healthier choices

Erica Sikorski's parents built a seasonal restaurant out of a bait shop along the Lake Erie shore.

Last year, her father, Richard, died of a heart attack a day after the Bedrock Eatery reopened.

"Since then, something inside me changed, where I felt the burning desire to sustain his legacy and kind of carry that torch for him," she said. "He put his heart, blood, sweat and tears into this place, and I couldn't see giving it away to somebody without at least trying this venture."

On June 11, Erica debuted a restaurant that's dedicated to providing healthier food options. The shift toward more plant-based food, made without preservatives, has more to do with reconsidering her own diet, which started two years ago, she said.

The renamed Bedrock, 4038 Hoover Road, Hamburg, doesn't sell hot dogs. The new Bedrock menu aims for more vegetables, less corn syrup and better meats, "more of a healthier diet," Sikorski said.

Sandwich options include a bison burger ($16) with Swiss and red onion on brioche with jalapeno garlic aioli, and portobello mushroom caps ($13), goat cheese, sun-dried tomato and an egg on brioche.

Bedrock offers some old-fashioned pleasers, too, like a fried bologna sandwich ($13) topped with American cheese, caramelized onions and an egg.

Salads include a steak salad ($16) with goat cheese, pickled onions, romaine lettuce, cabbage, roasted red peppers and pumpkin seeds, and a Beach Fiesta ($14) with legumes, romain, cabbage, margarita salsa, tortilla strips, sunflower seeds and jalapeno garlic aioli.

Snacks ($5) include tortilla chips with legume mix, onion rings and battered pickle spears.
