Lunch Hector to Lodi NY

We were all set to have lunch at Dano's, but alas they are closed on Tuesdays. Any suggestions?

  1. A couple of the wineries have restaurants I like... Wagner and Red Newt 's restaurants are both very good. Shift over to Cayuga Lake and there are more... the restaurant at Knapp Winery comes to mind. If it's the weekend you can get artisan pizza from the copper oven at Cayuga Ridge winery.

    Also, I saw your question about Bath NY... not exactly there, but up the road in Hammondsport, you might try the Village Tavern. It's right on the town green. Looks like a dark dive bar when you walk inbut the food is fresh and innovative. Also local wines by the glass.

      Dave in PA, thanks. Wagner's works out well as it was on our list of vineyards to check out.
      Village Tavern is a possibility.

        Wagners is good, I assume you found the thread here about finger lakes wineries.

        My personal favorites on that side of the lake are Lamoreaux landing, Shalestone (red only) and Red Newt.

        I saw you already mentioned Hermann Wiemer, good choice.

        Have to mention a dinner we had Monday at Red Newt. New concept for me, a "pop-up" restaurant=someone with a local rep runs it one day a week as their own. Consequently, the ingredients and preparations were amazingly fresh because it was one night only. It was a "Southern night" theme, with great music and the best fried chicken and sweet potato fries I ever had at a surprisingly reasonable price. Only down side was that they ran out of certain dishes as the evening went on because it isn't their place for storage, and traffic is tough to predict.

          If you get out that way again, check out the little place called Derek's Diner, on Tichenor Rd., between 414 and Red Newt. I recently had a great BBQ pulled pork sandwich and slaw there - it seems to be loved by people who are real BBQ fanatics.
