SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A new restaurant is opening in Downtown Syracuse, working to create an experience different from any nearby.
While many spots focus on farm-to-table, which is the idea of sourcing your ingredients from nearby farms, not many are only cooking on a wood-fired grille.
Everything at Eden is cooked over a wood fire, supposedly giving it a slightly smoky smell.
The owners wanted to focus on Central New York ingredients, helping to educate their customers, while highlighting all the farms and farmers surrounding the city.
“When you eat here, I want you to know where you are and what season it is just from the menu. I think that’s really important agriculturally, from a carbon footprint standpoint, and I think it educates people on what’s going on around them, so our menu will change weekly, possibly daily, depending on how much of something we have,” said Rich Strub, head chef and partner at Eden.
That ever-changing seasonally-driven menu is available Tuesday through Saturday, starting at 5 p.m.
