Hamilton College From Monica Inzer, Vice President and Dean of Admission and Financial Aid, and the staff of the Hamilton Admission Office Georgio's Village Café 60 Genesee Street New Hartford, New York The Chicken Riggies and Utica Greens are both local favorites that you need to experience when you’re here! Chicken Riggies are bite sized portions of chicken breast served with rigatoni, romano cheese, sweet and hot peppers, and onions in a hot and spicy pink white wine sauce. Utica Greens, also known as Greens Georgio, are made with chopped escarole, cherry peppers, fresh prosciutto, and a mix of oregano, bread crumbs and grated cheese. The Dessert Booth 13 College Street Clinton, New York Don't miss the Magic Bars at The Dessert Booth in the village of Clinton -- and lots of other yummy treats. They also serve lunch. Park Row Espresso! 1 West Park Row Clinton, New York At Park Row Espresso!, try the legendary half-moon cookies invented here in Utica and made famous in "The Dinner Party" episode of Seinfeld. This coffee bar is located just down the hill from Hamilton in the village of Clinton and you can get a coupon for one free cookie from the Admission Office. Be prepared, though -- you’ll want to buy more! Breakfast at Tiffany's 7840 State Rte 5 Clinton, New York A local institution, order the Chocolate Chip Pancakes -- and other things drowning in syrup or with bacon.
