The globetrotting menu at Pasta Factory takes tired taste buds on a worldwide tour of noodle nourishment. Start your journey south of the border with spinach con queso, a warm tortilla-chip jacuzzi of red peppers, onions, and spinach, mixed into melted pepper jack cheese ($4.99), or take the traditional route down the Mediterranean with a gondola full of fresh buffalo mozzarella tossed with olive oil, basil, roasted peppers, and roma tomatoes ($3.99). Tongues can keep wagging in Italy with main dishes such as tortellini alla vodka, which mingles cheese-shaped noodles with prosciutto, diced tomatoes, red onions, and a tangy sauce ($8.69). Diners also can visit a Greek salad, which mixes rotini pasta with Greek dressing, salad fixings, feta, and pepperoncini ($6.29), before returning to the United States for a classic beef stroganoff, featuring sautéed mushrooms, sirloin, and sour cream ($8.19). The restaurant also offers a variety of non-pasta items and a kids' menu, which caters to potentially picky eaters with standbys such as chicken tenders, mac 'n' cheese, and simple buttery noodles ($3.39).
The Meat House strives for community involvement by promoting local events and charities and serves up a selection of organic, all-natural, grass-fed meats to calm carnivorous cravings. Meat options include freshly butchered beef, lamb from the Midwest, Virginia-bred pork, and exotic meats such as buffalo, alligator, and ostrich—or as it's more commonly known, the megachicken. Customers can run up meatometers with marinated steak tips ($19.98 for 2 lb.), and poultrygeists can enjoy the clucking curse of lemon-and-pepper chicken breast ($11.98 for 2 lb.). The Meat House's premium proteins are dressed with signature marinades, using a process first conceptualized by a team of synchronized-swimming bovines.
The naturalization paper that freed co-owner Bryah Gifford's grandfather, Paul Patterson Power, from Ireland during the Great Famine adorns the walls of Power's Irish Pub among Mr. Power's family photographs. Along with decorations, Bryah pays tribute to her heritage with the bar's combination of pub and Irish fare, including Guinness-battered onion rings, Guinness beef stew, and shepherd's pie served atop a book of Guinness World Records. Eighteen draft beers wash down each bite, while live musicians complement meals with Irish tunes Thursday–Saturday. The pub accommodates guests until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and on Wednesday dogs can accompany visitors during Power's puppy hours to lounge on the deck and scarf down treats.
The treats at Control Tower Ice Cream are so tasty that they regularly cause pilots to land their planes near the shop. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Albany International Airport’s north runway is paved a few 100 yards from the creamery’s door. Regardless, from March to September, the staff serves nearly 20 specialty sundaes and more than 40 flavors of ice cream that woo adults and kids alike. More savory foods, such as hot dogs, burgers, and paninis, complement the desserts. After eating, guests can watch the planes land and take off or visit Control Tower’s go-kart track, miniature-golf course, or batting cages.
The owner of Antonio's Pizzeria and Italian Ice looks back fondly on his time spent on Long Island and the daily tradition of biking along the beach to meet up with friends at the local pizzeria. His cooks try to re-create those childhood memories by baking New York–style pies topped with handfuls from a selection of 17 meats and vegetables, including fresh garlic, eggplant, and bacon. Meatball-parmesan sandwiches and hot wings round out the menu of iconic dishes, but the kitchen also serves eight flavors of italian ice for the dessert or snowball-fight courses.
