Simply Red looks to bring something new to Geneva’s food scene

Renowned chef Samantha Buyskes, known for her appearances on the Food Network and her culinary expertise in the Finger Lakes region, is broadening her gastronomic ventures with the launch of Simply Red Kitchen at 112B Seneca St., downtown Geneva.


This new venture is not just a restaurant, but a multifaceted culinary space that offers Buyskes a base for her private chef and catering operations, while also serving as a unique dining venue for the public.

Simply Red Kitchen will function differently from traditional restaurants, focusing on “pop-up” events and takeout, with limited seating available, according to the Finger Lakes Times.


Buyskes, along with her business partner Natalie Baris, who managed Red Jacket Farms’ retail site for 12 years, envisions the kitchen as a space for small, private dining experiences where patrons can watch their meals being prepared in an intimate setting.

The duo encourages those interested to follow their social media pages for updates on upcoming events and menus, reflecting Buyskes’ passion for diverse ethnic cuisines.
