I see the review has been taken down. I read all of the negative comments. I do not know about there taking of grants and I do not agree with the owners stance on treatment of our vets. But I can give an honest review of the restaurant. I have eaten there and I do think the food is good. My fish was cooked perfect and my wife had the duck that was great. Paired food so the menu was small and set. My wife and I had an appetizer and a few drinks, and 2 courses after that. The portions were small but well prepared and plated nicely. The drinks were nothing special some local brew and decent wine. It was 180 for the pair to eat with 20% gratuity. It is a small place, seats less the 50 if I remember correctly. Service was fine, a little pretentious for Utica but hey at least they are trying. To all the haters that talk garbage about a business man who wasn't afraid to go get his, be honest. You just do not have the sack to get it yourself, or the brains (most likely). You call it a hand out, I call it catching the run off of a gov. that sprays free money like Niagara Falls. Grants are not going to stop being handed out, why not capitalize on it

"Grants are not going to stop being handed out, why not capitalize on it "

This explains the learned-helplessness and attitude that got you into the poverty hole. Keep rewarding lazy scoundrels for doing nothing and you'll never have a pot to piss in there.

You should try real restaurants more often too. If you want to try to seem "trendy" and "hipster" then sit there with the beret bitches and plan your next "occupy" and tell yourselves how smart your liberal progressive handout mentality is saving you.

"Results" say it all. If you had real investment and not Friends & Family unlevel scumfests you wouldn't need grants.
Let the GAIF fail to finish their obligation with the "Anti-Cultural Center on Varick you'll all see what real money does without all the grants and welfare subsidy handouts.

i know it's hard to believe up there in the poverty sticks but America wasn't built on "other people's money" and not everyone is dirt poor and averse to taking THEIR OWN risk.

Enjoy your mediocrity there. You seem well-suited to living in substandard shyt and telling yourself it smells like roses. That's the CNY way!

Yeah get bent retard loser. That you CARE reveals so much about you. A do-nothing yapper in a coffeehouse is a do-nothing yapper. When your contemporaries act 7 years younger and earn 1/5th what you do you tend to notice it when you drive on by with your girl in a car worth more than they make in three years and you see them sitting around talking in circles. I really don't care what do-nothings call themselves, you do. We know what they are.

"Results" are all that matters now go troll someone who cares if you realize how much your mindset and life sucks. Now quick post a whiny reply. Try to convince us to care what grant sucking "chefs" and yappers living up there in cowtown tax death state want or think. What next? We have to appreciate loser rednecks stuck in Alaska in the Great Subsidy Economy there too? Get bent troll.

You act as if the owners of TT&TC were handed this business and given millions of dollars. How do you know if they did use their life savings or took out a high interest loan. you don't.
How any businesses were given money in Utica only to close a short time after and with much more money.
TT&TC is at least thriving and trying to bring some culture to this area. Not everyone wants to eat at Olive Garden.
I recommend you pick on some conglomerate who have wasted millions of dollars, better yet pick on National Grid or Time Warner both monopolies.
The owners of TT&TC appear to be very hard working providing a product and service some people are willing to pay for. If your palate can't distinguish grapes from olives don't go there.

If its too expensive for you just go somewhere else. There are plenty of low cost options in Utica I don't understand why this is so hard for some to get.

Unfortunately the restaurant is too expensive, and I like expensive restaurants. Tailor and Cook makes a decent meal, but they sometimes over-reach with their menu that can, at times, be so eclectic and trendy that it simply does not work. How I long for La Petit Maison.
Also, how does the T&C justify charging $13 for a martini, when the other week I had a $14 martini in a very posh little bar a stone's throw from Lincoln Center? I would like someone to answer this.
It's easy to sell people on fancy if they don't know any better. Of course, I may still go there now and then, but I don't think it's quite up to it's own standards. And the bartender is annoying. Sorry, mixologist, whatever.

And by the way, those are reviews of people that have actually dined there. Not the ramblings of some lunatic with a grudge. Yes, it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but by the looks of it they're doing something right. I personally love it. They brought life and culture into an otherwise desolate area. I hope they do more.

They didn't want a veterans center going into the Boilermaker Museum location. Yet Utica coffee was more vocal about the area being built up for restaurants, ect. The Boilermaker build is anyways not an idea location for veterans considering its 3 stories and had no elevator. So I think the guys that are running the Veterans out reach weren't practical with picking that building to begin with. Now they are in the YWCA building, which is easier to get to, has a gym, elevators, ect. Which to me is a perfect fit.
