Symeons Greek Restaurant

A visitor to our area reminded me of a jewel we have in the Utica area. He's from Pittsburgh and when I mentioned that we had a Greek restaurant he wanted to try it, so he asked me if I'd like to go with him. Of course I said yes, because I love the food there.

We walked in and the smell was divine. We were seated and asked what kind of beverage we would like - I asked the waitress if they had beer - as you get a wine list - but no beer list. She said they did and first on her list was the Saranac Pomegranate Wheat which is by far my favorite Saranac. My friend said that he too would like one as I'd been telling him about it for two days. He loved it! Woo Hoo Saranac!

We order the Calamari which was phenomenal as usual and then our dinners came! Yum! He was very pleased - he's been to Corfu, Greece and to him the food just brought him back to the restaurant he liked the best - I believe he said it was Myra's. Oh and to make the whole evening awesome Symeon Jr came over and asked us how our dinner was - that thrilled my friend as well.

We are truly blessed in the Mohawk Valley with such a diverse culture.
