(More) Touring The Finger Lakes, New York

In my post Touring New York State Finger Lake Wineries the topic was, of course, wine.

Today I came across a great article in the New York Times Travel section: Finger (Lakes) Food

I'm familiar with many of the types of foods described in the article. While I've never had spicy Buffalo wings at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo where they were created, I've certainly had my share of them as an upstate New York resident.

Garbage plate? I'm not a fan but our son, who now lives in Philadelphia, never misses a chance to have one when he visits.

Dinosaur has a branch in Rochester. Not only have I eaten there but I've been to loads of summer picnics that are catered by them. I love their pulled pork.

Want GREAT salt potatoes? Head to the Rochester Seneca Park Zoo and line up at the small Eagle Cafe. I had some from there recently and they are the best!

And for ice cream? Don't miss out on Rochester's own, Abbott's Frozen Custard. And while you are at it, add some of their hot fudge to your cup of black raspberry. Heaven in a dish!
