Who’s really the best?


— After the team of chefs from the Brewster Inn claimed first place in the first annual Iron Fork competition on Jan. 29, they were crowned as the best in Syracuse.

But are they the best in Cazenovia?

We at the Cazenovia Republican have begun to think of all the eateries in our area, and wonder, which is the favorite of Cazenovians?

With an abundance of restaurants, all within a one-mile radius of each other, there is no doubt competition between the business owners.

We see the Brewster Inn’s recent award as an open invitation for local residents to try their extensive menu of high-quality culinary creations, as well as the offerings from other establishments in Cazenovia. We invite readers and gastronomic-enthusiasts to venture out around town — to their favored haunts, but also restaurants they have not patronized in some time.

Cazenovia boasts quality diners, fine-dining establishments, steakhouses, sportsbars, pizza places, Thai and Chinese restaurants and even eateries focused on using only locally-grown ingredients.

Some places we habitually frequent, and others we adamantly avoid. We think all residents should break their habits, and try one of Cazenovia’s fine establishments once a week or even once a month.

Local menus are always evolving, and each of the area’s restaurants offer specialized items patrons can’t get across town, or even next door.

We think encouraging residents to explore local businesses will not only result in memorable meals, but also increased business within the municipality and enjoyable social interactions. Sharing a meal with a close friend is nice, but sharing a meal with a room full of friends is nicer.

Who doesn’t like to walk into a place where everyone knows your name?

We hope to see you around town! Be sure to say “hello!”
