Where to Eat & Drink in Ithaca

Taste your way through Ithaca, NY, a foodie’s paradise flush with award-winning wines, delectable local cuisine and delicious craft beverages. Spend a day exploring the Downtown Ithaca Commons, which has over 50 places to eat, including quaint coffee shops, upscale dining establishments, pubs, and lively dessert spots. 

Several Ithaca restaurants are known for sourcing fresh produce, meat and cheese from local farms and farmers markets across the Finger Lakes region. Chefs and restaurateurs are embracing the Farm-to-Table dining movement and serving cuisine made from ingredients found within the region.

Of course a trip to Ithaca wouldn’t be complete without a visit to one of the many Finger Lakes wineries. Schedule an organized wine tour or set out on your own adventure along the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. Not into wine? The Finger Lakes are also an up-and-coming destination for craft beer, cider and spirits, and several Ithaca Breweries offer tastings, live music and food parings with their local brews so you can sample everything the region has to offer.
