Bourdain quotes, a new reviewer, the best local coffee shops and upcoming holiday posts

Food Links | Compiled by Nathan Mattise

  • With the semester winding down over at SU and holidays from work just days away, the NewsHouse offers up the best places for some caffeine to help you press through the work.  (It’s missing some essentials – People’s Place – so you can always check out Pure Coffee to cover your bases).
  • Finally, in honor of the year being almost up and the holidays upon us, a quick few announcements:

1) Diner Week 2010 is coming up in late December!

2)… so is the Diners Without Frosted Tips year-end list!

3) The best part of the holidays online, the Last Christmas blog, found a version that combines the loveable Wham! tune with..McDonalds… and bacon.

Is this the biggest food week in CNY history?

Food Essay and Links | Compiled by Nathan Mattise

In my other blogging escapades, I like taking a hard stand by creating comparative greatness arguments. I’m not as well-versed over time with Diner Without Frosted Tips’ subject (food happenings in CNY) as I am with others, but this week has me thinking:

Is this the biggest food week in CNY history?

Allow these links to speak for themselves:

  • Finally, less about national attention but more local-business oriented, SU students in the class of 2014 returned to campus this week. The class is bigger than ever (more opening weekend dinners with mom and dad before they leave) and also they are now directly exposed to Armory dining within their orientation.

I’m having a hard time thinking of a more active CNY food week during my six years in town. Anyone have other candidates?

Food stories, ballpark food, “localvores” and juiceboxes’ milestone.

Food Links | Compiled by Nathan Mattise

It’s been a big few weeks of CNY food news (naturally during my professional training time of year). Another famous chef announced a NY State Fair demonstration, the Syracuse Diners project I worked on has gotten some future press from the local paper and the NY Wine and Culinary Center announced the third year of a cool local competition (that I may be invited to participate as voting media in).

To celebrate, some more food links:

  • As much as I love me some cheap Saranac and a hotdog at a Syracuse Chiefs game, this ESPN report on ballpark food is definitely a bit disheartening.

It’s been confirmed: “Man V. Food” was in ‘Cuse recently

Food Links Compiled by Nathan Mattise

…and I wasn’t. My brother is a senior in highschool and good ol’ Valley View in Archbald, Pa. graduated this Wednesday.  Nevertheless, largely in part to Twitter, news and documentation of Adam Richman’s visit was plentiful.

Twitpic user neidl32 found him at Heid’s of Liverpool.

SU Lacrosse player Dan Hardy let the world know he played some stick with Richman yesterday.

YNN viewer Nick Finlayson sent in his photo of Richman walking towards the Dino.

Finally, Richman himself found a way to get face time with Coach Boeheim… host your own national television show.

That means Richman has spent time at SU and then also Heid’s and the Dino. He usually hits at least three food locales, one with a challenge, and to the best of  my knowledge neither Heid’s or Dino BBQ offers a true food challenge. Here’s hoping Mother’s Cupboard is still in the running…
