Built by renowned architect Ward Wellington Ward in 1910, Mohegan Manor’s recent renovations restored grandeur to the 100-year-old building. The manor's classic, rich menu and matching interior make it an ideal space for hosting wedding and union ceremonies, receptions, and parties. A main ballroom dazzles with a 22-foot domed ceiling, hardwood floors, and a 15'x30' mural painted with the first oils to extend a hand of friendship toward water. The four-story edifice also houses two traditional restaurants, Mohegan Manor and Club Sushi & Steaks. Live entertainment can be enjoyed on weekends at Club Sushi & Steaks.
Hometown Pizzeria, winner of Taste of Baldwinsville's People's Choice for Best Pizza, adorns its hand-tossed dough disks with a sorting of never-frozen ingredients and fresh toppings. The mighty menu includes a gastronomic glut of gourmet pies, ranging from the cheeseburger-and-fries pizza, a zesty ketchup and mustard spread layered beneath a bundle of police evidence auctioned from the Hamburglar's knapsack ($11.99/medium), to the oriental-chicken pizza piled with teriyaki chicken, cabbage, and roasted almonds ($11.99/medium). In addition to a selection of sandwiches ($3.69+) and custom calzones ($5.09+), Hometown also stocks a flock of more than 10 flavors of signature grilled wings, including honey barbecue and taki zesty orange ($6.90 /10). This Groupon is good for dine-in, carryout, delivery ($1 delivery charge), or teleportation.
One part ice-cream parlor, one part indoor playground. That’s Merlin’s Ice Cream and Bounce House’s recipe for all-in-one family entertainment. After ricocheting off the walls of inflatables, navigating obstacle courses, and slipping down slides, kids aged 10 and under rejoin their parents to make their own sundaes with housemade ice creams, sherbets, and frozen yogurts, as well as a variety of toppings.
At AppeThaizing, chefs strive to hit every taste bud on diners' tongues, incorporating sweet, sour, and salty flavors into a number of dishes on their menu of southeast Asian cuisine. They can also spoon fiery green-curry sauce or piquant Thai chilies into the mix, allowing willing customers to enjoy a spicy kick without the hassle of riling Chuck Norris after his jalapeño foot soak. Although many of their entrees feature succulent meats—including roasted duck, shrimp, and pork—they can also whip up vegetarian-friendly meals with tofu or seasonal Asian greens.
Embracing the same sensory mélange as the menus, AppeThaizing's dining rooms gently illuminate a kaleidoscopic assortment of yellow, red, and key-lime-green walls with a combination of ceiling-mounted track and pendant lighting.
Tabatha's Family Tree is aptly named because Tabatha Babbitt and Patricia Personius co-own and operate the restaurant with her family members. In the kitchen the chefs prepare pastas, prime rib, and veal scallopini sautéed with peppers, tomatoes, and mushrooms in a red wine sauce. The same careful preparation of their meals in the restaurant goes into their catered events, which can occur on or off their premises.
Gentile’s Pasta & Pizza Cafe's comforting menu features specialty pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches, each assembled quickly by skillful kitchen hands. Starters include chicken tenders ($7.95) and banged-up shrimp, which prepare for dates with tongues by bathing in a creamy chili-aioli sauce ($8.95). Steaming sandwiches ride ciabatta steeds to tables accompanied by chips (or add $1.50 for fries) that act as bodyguards to stars such as grilled chicken and grilled vegetables ($7.95 each). Customize a pasta bowl by the light of elegant chandeliers ($7.95), or select a predesigned pizza such as the Gucci, where an ensemble of steak, caramelized onions, basil, spinach, and gorgonzola mingles with a balsamic reduction ($12). Like most fashion models, 'zas are available gluten-free.
Head sushi chef and owner Chang Jiang stocks Kawa Japanese Cuisine’s concise menu with a blend of the familiarly authentic and the novel. Simple cuts of tuna, salmon, and yellowtail harmonize with miso soup and seaweed salad, whereas unconventional flavor combinations run riot on a list of signature rolls. The Crazy Monkey roll pairs tempura shrimp with fried banana and jungle vines, and the fried seafood roll enfolds five different kinds of fish. Chefs also slow-cook beef, shrimp, chicken, and tofu after marinating them in teriyaki sauce, and they flash-fry heaping platters of tempura seafood and vegetables.
