3-generation Syracuse graduation dinner (moved from New England)

Looking for a restaurant during (busy) graduation weekend to satisfy the taste buds for ages 22-90. Any ideas? Willing to travel a little out of the area to reach good food.

  1. Hi JG,
    You might want to post this on a different board... maybe the tri-state area board would get more responses!

    That being said, my brother-in-law lives in Syracuse and Rosalie's Cucina is very popular... wonderful Italian food. They even have a room for large parties at $32 a person including non-alcoholic drinks:

      1. I think that Rosalia's Cucina down in Skaneatles is an excellent choice.
        Make reservations early however because the place is popular and good and will be booked early.
        another place in Skaneatles you might try is the Sherwood Inn.
        This is an old inn overlooking the lake right in town.
        Very good food also and a great location with rooms if you need them.
        Good luck!

        1. Rosalie's looks terrific... And years ago someone mentioned Sherwood Inn to me. Thanks for both recommendations and the memory jolt. Only problem we'll have is time, as they are about 1/2 hour out of Syracuse and have to get back to the campus for a 7 pm event. Anyone know a great place in Syracuse?

          1. ONEplace I would go to meet all your criterion is Coleman's Restaurant on Tipperary Hill.
            We eat there a lot and they have a wide food range that would suit your crowd,lots of draft beers and a good bar which would suit your younger crowd ,and a great local reputation.
            You might also try Smorel's on Willis Avenue;another local favorite that has been around for years and is excellent!
            Good Luck
