With the success this year of the Syracuse University men's basketball team, everything in this town seems to be turning orange. So it makes sense that your food take on the bright color as well. The otherwise obnoxiously flashy hue isn't normally found in fan-friendly cuisine: It goes against the nutrition guideline that the deeper the food's tint, the healthier it is. When's the last time a sweet potato or acorn squash graced your game-time plate? Oh, that's right; never.Shaun Morrison, owner of the Burger Joint, 2700 James St., admits he doesn't know much about the food's nutritional benefits, but he does suggest customers dunk their sweet potato fries in their signature sweet potato sauce. A sweet and tangy combination, it's a thick paste with an off-white color. "Once you try it, you get addicted," he says. "Everybody goes crazy for the sauce."If you're looking for something completely different, try the orange and blue panini at Kelley's Bar and Restaurant, 5076 Velasko Road. Chef Chris Slater came up with the idea while thinking about Syracuse sports. The sandwich features crispy Buffalo chicken, grilled ciabatta bread, cheddar cheese and blue cheese crumbles, mixed greens and sliced onions. "We sell a lot on game day," Slater says. This item goes for approximately $10, and make sure you ask for it as it's not a regular menu item.
