With the summer heat surrounding us in upstate New York, we tend to look for light, “cool” dining options at dinner. I love spaghetti and meatballs, but July and August usually pass for it. I like a nice cold green salad and all the concoctions that come with it.
A salad is a great way to cool down. great freshness. Served with a leafy green salad, a tangy balsamic vinaigrette, and can be topped with chilled shrimp or avocado. Yes, sir, we are talking now.
When I was a kid, all salads were the same. In a small wooden bowl, stuff iceberg lettuce, tomato or cucumber slices, onion slices, and (if you’re lucky) half a hard-boiled egg.
Salad of the day? Well, the variety is limited only by the chef’s imagination. As you can see in this gallery, the menus of these Upstate New York fine dining restaurants are packed with creative works of art disguised as dinner-his salads.
If you missed your favorite salad at a restaurant in Upstate New York, mention it on their Facebook page. We would love to hear from you.
So when the temperature here hits 80, 85 or 90 degrees, head to the restaurant for a fresh cold salad to soothe your soul.
But remember, it’s not “Italian dressing” anymore.Balsamic!
With the heat and heat of upstate New York hitting us all, many think a fresh cold salad is the perfect way to keep the cool down at lunch or dinner time. Here’s a list of some of the best salads served at restaurants in our area this summer.
Is this the most charming country general store in upstate New York? We think so!
Upstate New York is dotted with many old-fashioned general stores. and we love them all.
Whether in the Hudson Valley or western New York, they remind us of simpler times.Kind of like a magical visit to Walton’s Mountain or Mayberry RFD
This time, I tried to shine a spotlight on the shops that are particularly attractive among the many general stores. Like most stores, this one is in a small town, with walls full of wares, food and gifts, run by someone who looks to the future but never forgets the past.
Check out the Delaware County general store. We think you will love it!
