Our Menus

Our Stakes in the Ground


Obtaining local products is of utmost importance to us. Sourcing ingredients from neighboring farms allows us to serve the freshest possible dishes, promote the local economy, reduce our carbon footprint, and ensure the food we serve is produced with methods we support. We believe that choosing local food enhances the environmental and economic health of our community.


We strive to serve our guests the absolute finest food in Central New York. Our chefs have impressive culinary backgrounds. More important, though, is the passion they possess for pleasing guests and the tremendous care they take in preparing provocative, seasonal dishes that highlight the best quality ingredients available regionally.



Our carefully selected staff is comprised of professionals who share our passion and vision for great food, drink and service. We have tremendous respect for your decision to dine with us and want to ensure that decision is honored with service that is second-to-none. Our top priority is to delight every guest who walks through our door.



Lots of heart and soul went into the renovation of our restaurant. Our goal was to serve our masterful dishes in a warm, inviting and unique atmosphere and as you look around our historic building we hope you’ll find our restaurant as aesthetically pleasing as it is comfortable.



By obtaining our ingredients locally, we are able to play a role in conserving fossil fuels and reducing harmful emissions. Rather than construct a new building to perfectly suit our operation, we made the more sustainable choice to renovate and retrofit an existing structure. The Tailor & The Cook is housed in a building as old as the city of Utica. We chose as much locally produced, recycled, refurbished, and reclaimed materials as we could.


Whether you share these values or not, we urge you to come visit us at The Tailor & The Cook and enjoy an amazing meal with us. We’re confident you won’t be disappointed.
