Food Scene
My absolute favorite restaurant and best food in Ithaca. Small plates so you can have “just a taste” of everything! Beautiful back patio! They don’t take reservations and are always busy, so likely you will have a wait. Put your name on the list and grab a drink at one of the many bars nearby. Worth the wait!

Reliable and quick take out (you can eat in as well, but atmosphere isn’t great). Great to bring home and eat on the front porch and watch the world go by.

Pretty good Vietnamese food—always crowded. I prefer to order take-out and bring the food to eat next door at the Westy (a bar with great beer, awesome outdoor patio, and they let you bring your own food – also, no liquor license at Saigon so if you want a drink with dinner you won’t want to dine in!).

Worth the walk – incredibly creative cocktails in a beautifully renovated building with beeswax finished plaster walls, antique furniture, and custom zinc-top finished bar. Great place to grab a drink while waiting for a table if eating out on the commons.
