Restaurants
One of my go-to places to eat out. Located in the Westcott area, it has a good selection of Americanized Mexican food. They have a standalone bar as well if you just want some margaritas.

With a hole-in-the-wall feel with just a few tables, this little restaurant has a pretty satisfying hot-stone bibimbap.

This place is hyper-popular for serving top-of-the-line pizza. Their salads are great too. The place can get pretty poppin’ if you’re looking for a crowd.

Groceries
Your friendly neighborhood grocery store with a local, almost home-grown feel to it. Smaller than both of the other recommendations, but has what you need and is walkable.

My go-to for groceries. Fair prices (especially on cheese, if you love cheese like I do). It’s rather minimalist and sticks to key items, so I wouldn’t go here if you’re searching for specific baking ingredients and rarer spices.

Standard run-of-the-mill grocery store that has everything you’d expect from a grocery store – doesn’t have that “je ne sais quoi” that your bougie, all-organic groceries possess, but they carry your typical stock and a surprisingly impressive seafood collection. The crab cakes are cheap and a quick bake in the oven (350⁰ F for ~20 minutes)

Dessert
Another downtown favorite, this bakery boasts well-crafted pastries and other sweets. You can grab a good coffee and some tea in here, too, to wash down whatever guilty pleasure you decide to indulge yourself in for the day **Closed Sundays and Mondays**

I’m partial to Cheesecake, so it’s obviously my recommendation due to their massive variety of, well...cheesecake. There, you might actually find the Cheesecake Mistress.

Bars/Nightlife
All of the recommendations you'll find in here are in Armory Square, the heart of Downtown Syracuse. If can’t make up your mind or just want to stumble upon a nice place to eat or drink, take a stroll around this well-maintained set of blocks and you’re bound to run into something.
Have the urge to dance? Check out this bar and dance club. Their outdoor patio can be enjoyable in the summer months especially. Population tends to air on the younger side (but age is just a number, baby!)

6th largest mall in the USA – it has everything you’d expect in a mall plus a movie theater, fitness center, a weird indoor climbing jungle gym thing, and tons of restaurants. It can get really crowded during peak times, but you’re sure to find something to do/buy here.
