I'm making a pilgrimage home to Central NY from the West Coast in August. I want to hit all of my old haunts and make new friends while I'm there. I will definitely be visiting Dinosaur BBQ in syracuse, Pepi's Pizza in Oneida, Florentine Pastry Shop in Utica and Petite Maison in Waterville. Please remind me of other places that I shouldn't miss and other newbies that are sure to become my new friends.
If you happen to know of any raw food, vegetarian, or vegan restaurants, I'd like to know about those as well. Thank you so much!
