Within Walking Distance
MiCasa--authentic Dominican and Caribbean cuisine. Only a few short blocks away from the Rosemont Inn.
Ancora-updated Italian featuring many local specialties like Utica Greens and Chicken Riggies. Located right next door to the Stanley Theater.
Lotus Garden-5 types of Asian cuisine. Also next to Stanley Theater, behind the street side parking lot.
Swifty's Pub-sports bar with many quiet corners; burgers, chicken, etc made with locally sourced meats. Located next to the Stanley Theater.
Ocean Blue-despite its name, this place has a lot more than seafood. We love the Short Rib Nachos. Located at the top of the Landmark building. Great views and outdoor seating when the weather cooperates.
Motus--modern American restaurant and gastropub. Excellent mixed drinks. Directly across from the "Gold-Domed Bank"
Tailor & the Cook-DiRoNA awarded, farm-to-table fine dining. A personal favorite. Set in Bagg's Square at 94 Genesee Street. Reservations strongly encouraged, especially on weekends.
Tavolo-another of Utica's many Italian restaurants.
Piggy Pats BBQ-delicious food with locally sourced meats.
