ALBANY, N.Y. - More than 100 New York restaurants are taking part in the Pride of New York pledge.
A press release says the Take Pride of New York Pledge is part of the Taste NY initiative to increase the sourcing, marketing, and education of New York grown and made products.
"Taking this pledge will help raise more awareness and introduce more New York State made products to restaurants across the state," New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

- Feature, highlight, and increase by 10% wines, beers, spirits, ciders and other locally produced beverages on their drink menus
