Living in central New York, you can proudly say there is a good amount of food places to dine at as well as a leisure place for an evening with your significant other away from college work, work, roommates and housemates. Living up here in CNY, I have experienced many of meals, mostly Italian, that are unbelievably amazing in comparison to the Binghamton area. This week, this article is to intrigue couples or those wanting freedom out after a long day or a joyous day after doing fall activities. Here are a few recommendations I have for you.
Carmellas Cafe - New Hartford, NY
One of my favorite restaurants be cause the food is great and they do have great deals. This place can be found on route 5 B, Seneca Turnpike by the Sangertown Mall. It's an italian resturant, homemade pasta, amazing chicken riggies recipe with amazing bread! They also have good sandwiches! Lastly, if you are of age, they do have buy one get one drink special! check it out and enjoy!
The Soda Fountain Resturant - Remsen, NY
This place felt like it was out in the middle of no where but once you arrive, you can see the vintage 70s brought back to life. If you like the vintage McDonalds in North Utica, you will enjoy this restaurant with the checkboard floors, waitresses in dresses, classic music, you name it.
Venice pizzeria - Yorkville, NY
Home of the King sub! This place is found outside of west Utica towards Whitesboro on Oriskany Blvd among the many franchises around. This place is locally owned that you can always find this place pretty busy. The pizza and wings are really good for those evening hours, but the king size subs are perfect for two. Many times I would get one of this King size subs for lunch and share half with my girlfriend and we honestly would be feeling full before our next classes. If you want a hardy and filling meal, you should visit Venice!
Yetti's - Herkimer, NY
Going out eastward, one of my favorite places to go was Yetti's in downtown Herkimer. This place is located just behind Burger King on route 5S and if you want a nice Calzone, this is where you go. Around $8, I got a sausage, pepperoni Calzone from there, and I decided I wouldn't have another one just like it. These guys load their calzones so heavy that it looks like it'll explode. It honestly exploded my taste buds and I'm craving one now!
