GOOD FOOD IN UTICA

Utica shares a cuisine with the mid-Atlantic states, with local and regional influences. The city's melting pot of immigrant and refugee cuisines, including Dutch, Italian, German, Irish and Bosnian, has introduced dishes such as ćevapi and pasticciotti to the community.

Utica’s staple foods include chicken riggies, Utica greens, half-moon cookies, mushroom stew, and tomato pie. Other popular dishes are pierogi, penne alla vodka, and sausage and peppers.

Utica has long had ties to the brewing industry. The family-owned Matt Brewing Company resisted the bankruptcies and plant closings that came with the industry consolidation under a few national brands. As of 2012, it was ranked the 15th-largest brewery by sales in the United States.

Restaurants listed are just some of our favorites and ordered by distance from campus.
