This next week is going to be really exciting for Syracuse… it’s basically prime time for this blog….there’s so much to do!
First we’ve got Downtown Dining week; which features 3 course meals for $25 or less from the best restaurants in town, and there’s also Winterfest.
For the next few days I’m going to be featuring my favorite downtown restaurants that are participating in dining week, and also really awesome activities you can participate in during Winterfest.
The end of February is going to fly by, and then before we know it we’ll all be dressed head to toe in green and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!
We start dining week off with a bang at Kitty Hoynes.
I’ve mentioned Kitty Hoynes before…remember trivia? Trivia at Kitty Hoynes is so awesome and everyone should check it out. It’s run by my friend over at NOexcuses.
Kitty Hoynes has quickly become one of my favorite places to hang out at in Syracuse. The atmosphere is comfortable, the people are friendly…I’m a huge fan of the small-pub feel; it’s cozy and comfortable. Every Monday, my friends and I settle in at one of the open tables and enjoy dinner and trivia. It’s a great way to start the week, and an even better way to have an excuse to try everything on the menu.
Their Dining Week menu features delicious traditional Irish fare from Shepherd’s Pie, to grilled chicken with a Guinness mustard cream sauce, to Dublin Steak. They’ve also teamed up with Ommegang, an official sponsor of Downtown Dining Week, and will be offering special pairings and flights throughout the week!
Note: During Lent, Kitty Hoynes also features a special Festival of Fishes where they have seafood on Thursday’s and Friday’s on their menu. The Festival of Fishes menu includes: Baked Oysters, Shrimp Cocktail, Seafood Flatbread, Smoked Tilapia fish tacos, Mahi Mahi stuffed with smoked salmon, and a Baked Haddock Casserole.
Tip: Did you know Kitty Hoynes has 19 beers on tap and the largest selection of Irish Whiskey & Scotch available in upstate NY!
