A garbage plate is a specialty of Rochester but The Brine Well Eatery — now open on Jefferson Street in Syracuse — is adding a local twist.

“It’s something that's needed here, something different, maybe if you want to have something late night or something like that,” said Roosevelt Brown, a Syracuse resident.

The restaurant puts a Central New York spin on a regional dish. The Syracuse plate has smashed salt potatoes, Hoffman hot dogs, baked beans, pickles, and a drizzle of honey mustard.

"My passion is connecting people back to their food, so 70 percent of what we're sourcing here is locally sourced from farmers down by the Finger Lakes,” said Devon Hubbard, The Brine Well Eatery owner. “We're getting our meats from Lucky 7 farms up near Watertown."

Opening a restaurant is a dream-come-true for Hubbard, a Cicero-North Syracuse graduate. He calls his dishes a picnic on a plate.

The restaurant also serves the original garbage plate as well as Buffalo, Ithaca, San Antonio, and Memphis-inspired dishes. It is open Monday through Saturday.
