More than 60 food and merchandise vendors have opted out of this year's New York State Fair, many citing a labor shortage, according to media reports. Now, a Utica restaurant is stepping up by doubling the size of its food booth and turning it into a large restaurant and bar at this year's state fair, which will showcase the city of Utica.
It's no secret that the Utica area is pretty well known for their food options. What would you do if there was a sandwich created that incorporated the majority of these all together? Would you eat it?
If you're going to the Great New York State Fair this weekend, be sure to check out the "It's a Utica Thing!" food truck for an extreme dish that's all about Utica. It's called 'The Thing' and this is how it's made.
