Writer Chuck D'Imperio is the author of a book titled "A Taste of Upstate New York: A Guide to 40 Treasures" so he knows a thing our two about some great places to eat in Upstate New York. After going over some of his notes from his food adventures in Upstate New York over the years he compiled a list of the 12 Best Food Cities in Upstate New York and much to my surprise Schenectady takes his top spot on the list.

He sites a steak submarine sandwich at Morrette's as a "Crown Jewel Dish" in the Electric City, Ferrari's Italian Ristorante as a "Bucket List Restaurant" to try, and suggests a homemade cannoli from Perreca's Bakery as a "Surprise Treat". However, the fact that Schenectady is home to a huge array of great ethnic food really solidified their spot at the top.
