If you live outside a 150-mile radius of Syracuse and need lodging, you may stay as our guest at one of the four university-area hotels listed below for either the night preceding or the night of a Syracuse Visitor Program (based on the hotel's availability).  *Please note that College of Law cannot reimburse you if you make your reservations through a third party such as Travelocity, hotels.com, etc. 

Additionally, you must bring a copy of the Visitor Program invitation or confirmation that you received by mail with you and present it to the hotel front desk upon check in.  All hotels must know that you will be staying as part of the College of Law Visitor Program so they can insure that we are billed at the proper rate.

  • Syracuse Area Restaurants
    Admissions & Financial Aid Staff picks (and reviews!) for favorite area restaurants:

    Lauren Polak’s pickDinosaur Bar-B-Que (Downtown Syracuse)
    Think you can’t hang with the biker crowd?  Think again.   Everyone is family at the Dinosaur and they have never flinched at my preppy 9 to 5 attire.  Order the classic pulled pork sandwich, which has to be paired with the mac-n-cheese, coleslaw, and beans. Before you leave town, be sure to grab a jar of their famous “wango tango” sauce at the restaurant or any area Wegmans grocery store and become your own local pit boss. 

    Ashley Hoffman’s pickAlto Cinco (Westcott St.)
    Giant burritos, unique specials, cozy eclectic dining area, and great people. What’s not to love? Great for a night out, or take out. The only problem with this place is deciding what to order. A personal favorite is the fish tacos: crispy fried catfish with spicy chipotle mayo, cooled down by the fresh salsa, red onion, and cabbage. My mouth is watering just telling you about it.

    Gina Soliz’s pickEmpire Brewing Company (Armory Square)
    The Empire is more than a brew-pub, serving sandwiches, burgers, and fries (although, they have those, too!).  My favorite meal might be the fish tacos (grilled, not fried) with a side of sweet potato fries or blue corn bread.  They keep 8 homemade brews on tap – most popular could be the “Skinny Atlas Kolsch” named after our local Skaneateles Lake or, my favorite, the IPA (a hoppy and bright brew).

    Nikki Laubenstein’s pickPastabilities (Armory Square)
    The possibilities at Pastabilities are endless.   Your meal starts with their famous spicy hot tomato oil served with Pasta’s stretch bread.  While the seasonal options are always delicious, a go-to menu item for me is the fresh basil-walnut pesto.  From the generous, savory portions to the chic urban atmosphere, what’s not to love?!  Be sure to visit Pasta’s Daily bread across the street to buy a loaf of delicious stretch bread to compliment your dipping oil at home!

    Emily Zipprich’s pickSmall Plates (Armory Square)
    Small Plates Detroit has become one of my favorite restaurants in Syracuse. The menu is comprised of small and medium-sized portions that are meant to be shared. The menu has everything from pizza to fried chicken and waffles. Your plates are brought out as they are ready so there is always something new being served. Small Plates is the perfect place to try something that you might not be sure about; if you don’t like it, someone in your party will!

    Eddie Gulino’s pick - Faegan’s Pub (Marshall St.)
    Not feeling like making the trek downtown to Armory Square? Leave Syracuse Law behind for a minute and head down to Marshall Street’s very own Faegan’s Café and Pub. This British and Irish inspired cuisine serves good old fashioned comfort food.  Try the “Our Way” Black Label Burger topped with caramelized Guinness onions, applewood bacon, blue cheese, smoked Gouda and fresh arugula. The pub boasts great Tuesday-Thursday drink specials, each with unique and fun events that energizes the pub afterhours.
