Geneva – The Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce held its February Business After Hours Networking Mixer at Bella’s Seneca Lake Steakhouse on Wednesday February 8 from 4-6 PM. Located at 369 Waterloo Geneva Road in Waterloo, the historic site had formerly been the long-running Emile’s restaurant. Dick Austin who also owns Bella’s Sicilian Ristorante in Geneva, purchased, and renovated the space before it re-opened in 2022 as Bella’s Seneca Lake Steakhouse. A large mix of long time Chamber members, partners and board members as well as several new chamber members attended the event where they had the opportunity to sample items from the menu and enjoy conversations with owners while learning about the history of the property, which included its origin as a livestock barn.

Business After Hours are held on the second Wednesday of each month 4 – 6 PM unless otherwise noted. They are open to the public, but hosting is one of the promotional opportunities that is only offered to Chamber customers.
