On our recent visit to the Brick Alley, a special menu was featured for Syracuse University graduation weekend. Tables were decorated with dark blue and white cloths and bright orange napkins, the school colors.
Appetizers included fried calamari, pizza with BBQ chicken, coconut popcorn shrimp, and crabcakes. Their chowder won first place in the annual Winterfest chowder cook-off. Seafood, pasta, and grilled entrees are priced in the $15 - $25 range and include a salad. Surf and turf, prime rib, pork chops, and various chicken dishes come from the grill. Pasta entrees included chicken gorgonzola, shrimp/mushroom/broccoli alfredo, and the favorite, lobster ravioli. From the sea, they offer haddock, salmon, and several other seafoods. All are prepared with unique sauces and seasonings.
If you have room for dessert, the Fruits of the Forest pie is a good choice, or fudge cake for the chocolate lover, cheesecake, and tiramisu.
Brick Alley is open six days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; on Sundays, they have brunch.
