this will complete my list of surrounding areas to where i live using Utica as a starting point for reference:

Route 12 North

Remsen on Rte 12 Mondi's Bar-B-Q mentioned in a previous post good barbeque, cozy pine diner

Remsen FOTA Barn Festival late September a number of food sellers set up among the arts booths up and down main street

Remsen on Rte 12 OK Corral Diner greasy spoon diner but they have good home made soups and standard diner fare coffee lousy, no half & half

Rte 28 branch

Forestport Buffalohead Restaurant (take Rte 28 at Alder Creek, go right just other side of Black River bridge 1 mile) excellent old time bar-restaurant
ex Prime Rib, fries with tasty gravy (not the cheap gravy found in most places) ect

Woodgate on Rte 28 the Wigwam bar-restaurant this is
another old time place with a nicely done pine interior. it's more of a bar than a restaurant but it's also been around since i was a kid. it's a nice
cozy place to stop, relax and have a beer and or a burger. you can't miss it... it has the tail end a piper cub sticking out of it's roof. Woodgate has had some record low temperatures in winter in NYS

(continue on 28 and you'll end up in Old Forge, ect)

Route 12 branch

Boonville The Hulbert House Main st in the Village Square open since the 1800's it's survived numerous fires, ect a good standard American food menu in a
great ancient Colonial restaurant decor

Highmarket The Highmarket Inn if you are really adventurous you can proceed through Boonville on Rte 26 then at Constableville turn left on the road going uphill. the map doesnt give it's name. it takes you to the top of Tug Hill and the Highmarket Inn. the Inn
is a bar-restaurant frequented by locals, snowmobilers,
hunters, and campers. it's a nice summer ride but it might be wise to avoid weekend nights. it can be rowdy then. Tug Hill is a semi-wilderness area. few live there because of the massive snow buildup in the
winter and the thick brush backcountry. there are camps around and a Parks dept pulloff at the end of the paved road past the Highmarket Inn

Lowville on Rte 12 there are two diners right across
from each other. been in the one on the left, it was
pretty good. the one on the right is part of a small motel and i've heard it is good also.
