Local Businesses

If you've ever felt the burden of needing to decide what you want to eat before heading out to dinner, you're not alone. But, if things continue to progress the way they seem, that won't be a problem for Syracuse residents next year.

The Salt City Market is scheduled to open in the fall of 2020, offering a food hall with culinary options as diverse as the city itself. On this episode of The 315, Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss chat with Market Manager, Adam Sudmann and two potential venders about how the food hall could impact the Syracuse area. 


Each year when the annual 'Taste of Syracuse' festival arrives it signals the unofficial start of summer and a good reason to take in some excellent food. On this episode of The 315 Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss make the trip to Clinton Square to see what this year's lineup has to offer.

But before that, the boys swing by 'Glazed and Confused' to chat with the donut shop that's set the bar for sweet breakfast treats in Syracuse.

One of the best experiences one can have going downtown is finding a new favorite restaurant. If you've been itching to try something a little different for your dining experience, this episode of The 315 is for you! This week Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss visit Kasai Ramen, the newest  ramen restaurant in Armory Square. 

The guys enjoyed a meal and then invited Owner and Chef Kyle Mastropietro into the studio to talk about what makes his spot unique.

An M&T Bank survey of Upstate New York businesses and manufacturers seemingly reflects the increase of U.S. GDP announced last week of 4.1% during the second quarter of 2018.  Ahead of that news, the M&T survey was conducted in May and found that 57% of Upstate businesses anticipated the economy would continue to improve.  However, Manager of Small Business Banking, Lee DeAmicis of Syracuse said that these businesses wanted to be certain of the fate of the economy.

Snowy weather, basketball, and salt potatoes. Three things that Syracuse is arguably best known for, but what about trivia? Yes, the trivia scene is alive and well in Central New York and this week on The 315 the guys are joined by the owner of The Syracuse Trivia Company Brian Cocca. 

This week's show also contains a highly controversial trivia battle between Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss. Listen to see who comes out on top. Hint: It's really ugly.

Plus an audio tour of the Hawley Green District by Laura and Cindy, Co-Owners of Laci's Tapas Bar. 


With days and nights filled with constant comings and goings sometimes it's important to just take the time to get away. But at the end of a long week many of us don't feel like taking another long drive. For Central New Yorkers looking to relax the, Black Creek Farm Bed & Breakfast might be just what you need.

As you shop for people on your holiday shopping list, how much of the items are produced locally?  Organizers of an annual event hope that you consider supporting local restaurants, wine and brewers and the products that have made them well known.  The 8th annual “Buy Local Bash” will be held this evening.  The Event Coordinator Shannon Fults of Centerstate C.E.O. says vendors enjoy meeting with prospective customers.
