Are these the best restaurants in Ithaca? Be the judge! WOW

Okay, let’s talk about food. To be specific, let’s talk about Ithaca food.

This great college town is full of fine restaurants to choose from. During my many travels to the Ithaca area, I have found several favorite dishes that I would like to share with you. This gallery lists my top ten places to eat. Of course, this is one man’s opinion (mine), so the list is for suggestions only. And that’s what the intention of this post is.

As you’ll see, the list is eclectic, to say the least. I had a great steak in Ithaca, a wonderful Italian dinner, a waterfront evening of cocktails and appetizers, a creative Vietnamese meal, one of the best wood fired pizzas I have ever eaten, as well as a memorable submarine sandwich, and (maybe) the best hamburger in upstate New York. And all this in Ithaca.

I had the pleasure of writing a book for Syracuse University Press about the foods of upstate New York. I have written several travel guides to the area and I can promise you, I will write a book while eating my way through our area. it was my pleasure ! Ithaca is mentioned several times in the book, so I am familiar with what the city has to offer. And it’s delicious.

Of course, there are over 100 places to eat in Ithaca, so this list of ten will only scratch the surface of them all. And that’s where you come in. If you have a favorite Ithaca restaurant of any kind, be sure to visit our Facebook page and share it. We really want to hear from you!

Are these the best restaurants in Ithaca? Be the judge!

Over the years I have spent traveling and researching my many published books in Upstate New York, I have found some great food towns where I can get away from the road and enjoy a meal relaxing. Some of the surprises I discovered include the many amazing restaurants in the Utica/Rome area, these great restaurants in Schenectady, the wonderful Italian restaurants in the Southern Tier, and many delicious places to dine in the Hudson Valley. Ithaca, New York, is a true “food town” favorite. The city’s motto is “Ithaca is gorges.” I would add “Ithaca is delicious!” So (in one man’s opinion) I bring you the ten best places to eat in this great college town. And check out the last one (I call it my bonus spot). It’s very cool! Of course, there are over 100 great places to eat, so be sure to visit our Facebook page and add your own favorite in Ithaca.
