16 Upstate New York Restaurants That Need To Make A Delicious Come Back
Which Utica, Rome, and Syracuse area Upstate New York restaurants from your childhood deserve a comeback?
For example, did you know that Utica's oldest bar is still in operation and is probably older than your grandparents? Gerbers on Liberty Street is Utica's oldest Prohibition-era bar.
The full official title is "Gerbers 1933 Tavern" to honor the year in which Prohibition was repealed, and the year it officially (legally) started serving alcohol. Of course, Uticans could still get a drink there when you legally couldn't. Their website says it was frequently busted by the "Flying Squadron," the name given to supporters of Prohibition who loved to rat on speakeasies."
New York State has the honor of holding the title for the oldest bakery in America. One bakery has been baking incredible baked goods since 1892. From the year that Ellis Island started receiving immigrants to the United States, in New York, this bakery was baking bread.
