Chavis & Chavis, Creole Soul

Chavis & Chavis, Creole Soul

Let’s call this value added. We were impressed to see the live art fundraiser and performance by Dakaro last night, an event that benefited the Good Life Youth Foundation and the Dunbar (Center). But we were equally blown away by the tasty treats provided by Creole Soul: Their bread pudding can best be described as fluffdillyicious.

The Mustard Seed (Arsenal Street, Watertown, NY)

The Mustard Seed (Arsenal Street, Watertown, NY)

We all struggle to find good food choices, especially on the road. A special shout out to Scott and the folks at The Mustard Seed in Watertown. They provided some much needed insight and a plethora of healthy food choices during our recent trip to the North Country.

Behind the Scenes: Special shout out to the staff at Small Plates for showing us some love for the Fashion Week kick-off event. Sometimes big productions are all about the folk behind the scenes.

The Boss of Sauce: Bluesman Bill Wharton (lower right) got some help from the audience (to stir his pot) to start his show Thursday night. Some technical glitches slowed the preparation of his mealtime musical set.

Mini Cheesecake: 83 & Company

83 & Company, Green Street’s Mini Cheesecake Factory

From the outside, the renovations done at 115 Green Street are impressive. Inside there are some great things going on as well. We recently visited the property, which is home to 83 & Company (and the $7 lunch special). The food was simple, but good.  The bulk of the business seems geared toward the Three C’s: Cakes, Cupcakes and Cheesecake.

The mini cheesecakes (included with lunch) are the perfect afternoon sugar fix.

Thanks to Inspiration for the Nation for inviting us to The Black Olive (now located on the Connective Corridor at West Fayette) for a mixer sponsored by the Syracuse offices of  Morgan Stanley.

LOFO Cafe/Bistro: Inside Out

LOFO Cafe/Bistro: Inside Out

A few months ago I ventured into Armory Square to revisit Om Boys Juice Bar, only to find it had closed. New owners were onsite and explained their concept.  I was skeptical and went for a smoothie.

Fast forward and (after numerous meals) LOFO, to me, may be the most underrated place in the city for flexitarian food.  Reminds me of a cross between a place in NYC that was called Pump and Juicy Lucy’s in San Francisco.

LOFO is definitely a great addition to Syracuse dining. I’m glad I stumbled upon it.
