Empire Brewing Co.

I recently went out to dinner in Syracuse's Armory Square with my friend Erin.  I'm not expecting much here in Syracuse, but I did have the expectation that when I go to a "Square" it's actually a square.  Alas, Syracuse up and disappointed me.  Armory Square is not a square, but is instead a few blocks of bars, restaurants, and shops.

We decided to check out Empire Brewing Company.  I was a bit nervous because I didn't see much on the menu but, lo and behold, I asked my waitress about gluten free options and she happily informed me that the restaurant has a gluten free menu.  You can check out the menu here, which includes symbols for vegetarian items.  I opted for a burger despite it not being labeled gluten free; the waitress told me the restaurant had just obtained gluten free burger buns so I figured I'd give it a shot.  The burger was good and the bun was better than having no bread at all.  I haven't found a gluten free burger bun that approximates gluten-filled burger buns, and this was no exception.  However, as far as gluten free burgers go, Empire Brewing Co. did a good job.

I also think the restaurant may serve up Redbridge, but I'm not completely sure about that.

Do you love it or do you love it?
