The menu at Canale's Italian Cuisine?a family-owned restaurant more than 60 years old?reads like a well-loved scrapbook. Its notes describe the food and its history: "Homemade gnocchi prepared with Ma Canale's recipe from Morolo, Italy," or "Anna's [tomato sauce] recipe, prepared exactly as she taught us back in 1954." Given these personal touches, it's no surprise that the menu has a Family Favorites section that spotlights classic entrees. These include homemade fettuccine, rigatoni with shrimp, and of course, spaghetti with meatballs or Italian sausage ("Canale's most popular dish").
For meals at home, the kitchen prepares "parties to go"?packages of pizza or chicken wings. You can also find Canale's sauces, dressings, and frozen dinners at dozens of grocery and misguided shoe stores in the area.
The sticky, smoky, sweet flavor of barbecue coats your fingers and inflames your senses every time you dig into a pile of ribs or a juicy drumstick. The Guyle family specializes in those tantalizing flavors, packing them into the menu at Jimmie James BBQ. They sell pulled pork, ribs, and chicken, all drizzled in savory barbecue sauce and served with corn bread and baked beans. If you'd rather have your barbecue as a topping, try the Route 104 burger with barbecue sauce and bacon or a pizza with pulled pork. Barbecue isn't the only thing at Jimmie James BBQ, though. Enjoy a selection of pizzas, hot subs, and baskets full of pub-style fish and chips, chicken tenders, and clams.
The cooks at The Stagecoach Cafe plate up a full menu of classic diner fare for breakfast and lunch, then fry fish on Thursday and Friday evenings. Eggs, pancakes, and biscuits with gravy appease bellies in the morning, and a wide variety of burgers and grilled sandwiches can be worn as warm earmuffs at lunchtime. In addition to seafood selections, the dinner hour also boasts down-home entrees such as meatloaf, mac 'n' cheese, and New York strip steak.
Located at the Syracuse Kickball Park, Jim and Rocks' Super Sub Shop helps fuel friendly competition amongst the players at the park's newly renovated 18-hole mini-golf course. Whole or half-sized cold subs are built upon a choice of a white or wheat roll, which is then piled high with homemade chicken salad, pastrami and provolone, or smoked turkey or ham. Those looking for a warm meal can peruse a selection of hot subs including a grilled cheesesteak and a chili dog smothered in cheddar cheese and sauerkraut, while light lunchers can enjoy their favorite sub meats and cheeses sans bun in a custom salad served with a choice of dressing. The sub shop also encourages snacking between rounds with munchies such as onion rings, fried mushrooms, and popcorn chicken carved right off the cob.
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.
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.
