Dining in Ithaca

My husband and I will be in Ithaca July 12 & 13th. Neither of us drink, so wouldn't wineries be wasted on us? Might someone suggest some singular sensations in the dining world in that area? Thanks so much.

  1. My father lives in Ithaca and brother went to Ithaca College. I've been to a few places, but their faves are Zaza's for Italian (I've never been).
    Thai Cuisine - excellent and wonderful service two times I've been there. Don't confuse with Taste of Thai. I've heard the food is decent, but the service is touch and go.
    Moosewood - Vegetarian and soups -
    Antler's or John Thomas - steakhouse/American. Antler's has specials some nights.
    Glenwood Pines - Burgers are very good
    Collegetown Bagels - bagels and coffee

      We really like Antlers. good food at a good price. We had a great dinner their last summer. Collegetown Bagels is also very nice.

    2. Just a Taste is a Tapas type place. My husband and I were there last month and really enjoyed it. It is also a wine-tasting bar which of course is not for you, but the food is really good, and it's fun to be able to try a number of different plates.

      1. Thanks to all for suggestions. Just a Taste was brilliant. We also tried a new place (also tapas) called Lot 10 on S. Cayuga near the Commons. The food was excellent, the servers (and service) couldn't have been better. What a great addition to some of the mall places which seem to be interchangeable. Again, thanks to all respondents.
