From price to cuisine, eating out in the Leatherstocking region largely exemplifies middle-American dining. The region's best-known entrée is purely American and can be found on many restaurant menus on Friday: the fish fry, a breaded piece of haddock served with french fries and coleslaw. That said, new immigrant groups in the region continue to diversify the cuisines available here. And, although
casual dining is the rule rather than the exception, the region does have several fine-dining places that hold up against the best restaurants in the state. Cooperstown, for one, has a cluster of excellent restaurants, and Utica is known for its Italian eateries.
