About Us

We are Nicole and Kevin Samolis, proprietors of SKY Armory, The Events Company and now Epicuse.

We live in downtown Syracuse, and just like you, have busy lives where meal prep is last on our minds... until the 'hangry' happens. Then it's the decision of eat-in or take-out, which gets expensive and adds more calories than our waistlines need when done on a daily basis.

So, we've created a place where people who live and work downtown can easily stop in to pick up freshly prepared meals and foods made from scratch that you can take home, reheat and put on the table in minutes, without the wait and prices of a restaurant.

Because we do like to cook, we offer fresh produce, meats, cheeses, dairy and other curated small batch pantry items to take home and cook on those days that are less hectic.

The final step is creating a community where one can hang out, alone or with friends, in an inviting and cozy atmosphere. Whether sitting indoors or out, we'll make you feel welcome. Get out of that home office and bring your laptop and enjoy a beverage and a snack. We've created our Tasting Room where you can try wines, spirits and craft beers and a complimenting menu of all things related to cheese (we call it the Cheese Bar) to be a gathering place for after work or on the weekends as you head out to dinner.

This is Epicuse - a fresh, local, made-from-scratch market with a tasting room and cheese bar.

We invite you to come explore the many flavors of Epicuse!
