Guidebook for Ithaca

Food Scene
Great chef and delicious food and wine, cozy. A top-tier restaurant without the big-city prices (but moderately pricey for Ithaca).

Open weekends, Apr-Nov. Great setting on the water, often able to catch live music and take a boat ride. Famous, truly local farmer's market. Buy a breakfast/lunch from vendors and find a picnic table or place on the dock to sit and eat. Could get crowded and is touristy but worthwhile.

Drinks & Nightlife
Nice indoor taproom (but can be very loud) and decent food. Wide-open outdoor space with seating, fireplace, bocce, outdoor kitchen next to their own veg garden and neighboring farmland. Iconic beer known for its hoppy deliciousness (ask me for recommendations). Very popular and can get busy; I recommend getting there early to avoid a wait during nice-weather days. Brewery tours available.

Relatively new and still growing its crowd base, currently a diverse group of patrons which makes it an interesting social scene. The beer is adventurous and enjoyable; there are some really strong ones. They only serve nibbles for food but you can bring your own. Just down the hill from our house (8 min).
