Ithaca is overflowing with culinary bounties, from local
wines, to produce, to creameries that make cheese right on the farm. Many
chefs and restaurants are embracing the Farm to Table dining movement,
working with the farms, orchards, and butcheries to serve locally sourced menus
with ingredients and products from our own backyard. There are several dining
options that grow their own ingredients onsite, creating a meal that's gone
straight from the farm to your fork.
Here you can really taste the difference!
Moosewood- Named one of the 13 most
influential restaurants of the 20th century by Bon Appetit Magazine,
this world-famous vegetarian restaurant was established in 1973 and has
produced many best-selling cookbooks.
Angelhearts Diner- Dedicated to serving an environmentally friendly and
100% vegan menu from scratch in the classic American diner atmosphere.
Northstar House- With an extensive list of bottled
beers, 12 rotating drafts, and an excellent selection of spirits and wines, the
menu is always fresh and changes with the seasons. The chefs use local, organic
vegetables and meats whenever possible, and are working towards serving foods
from within a 100-mile radius. Within walking distance of Ithaca Falls, a premier local attraction!
Café- Dewitt- Located in the historic Dewitt Mall in downtown Ithaca, Café Dewitt is known
for their imaginative and fresh cuisine. This European-style eatery has won
multiple awards for their brunches, serving classics like their bountiful
farmhouse breakfast, and a lively selection of creative specials, like a
lemon-chiffon pancakes topped with mascarpone whipped cream.
Ithaca Farmers Market- A cooperative of 150 agricultural vendors from a 30
mile radius of Ithaca, vendors grow and offer high quality fruits, vegetables,
meats, eggs, poultry and dairy products. Food vendors bring a wide variety of
freshly baked goods, jellies, honey, and sauces as well as delicious meals to
eat at the market. Many talented artists and craftspeople sell their exceptional,
locally made items. The market pavilion is situated in a
garden-like setting, surrounded by trees and flowering plants, on the
waterfront and was built entirely by volunteer labor. Shop for fresh, local
produce, choose a handcrafted gift or listen to music while savoring a variety
of international foods at a table on the waterfront. What was originally an innovative way to sell
local produce, crafts, and baked goods is now an Ithaca tradition.
