We will be traveling to Corning/Elmira NY, including the Finger Lakes wine region. Any recommendations for restaurants would be appreciated. Previous posts have revealed next to nothing, with one individual calling the area somewhat of a "Culinary wasteland". Hopefully, a few new choices will have surfaced.

      Surprisingly, at most of the places I was at last summer, the food was ALL fresh, no corner-cutting American procesed plastic food. I don't have any high-end recommendations but here's two more roadfoody ones. I don't know if in your area, but my favorite stop was at Mac's Drive-In for home-made root beer. It's at 1166 Waterloo-Geneva Road (Routes US 20 & NY 5) one-half mile west of the village of Waterloo. (Tuesday – Sunday 10:30 am -- 10:00 pm. I don't know how late in the season they're open. Also, a nice stop for breakfast was the old-timey Duggets Café on the main street in Union Springs.
