“Hazelnut offers the best in farm-to-table fine dining. Great for a celebratory dinner or fancy date night, this small restaurant offers a formal yet cozy atmosphere. You will definitely need a reservation if you want to sample their chef's amazing local/seasonal menu.”

“After the concert, or as an alternative evening activity, head over to Atlas Bowl in Trumansburg, where you can eat and drink and bowl - all at the same time! This funky restaurant was a makeover of an old grocery store, and it has a fun vintage vibe. The menu offers tasty hipster-vintage-Americana fare. If you're a Big Lebowski fan you'll feel right at home, and you should probably try a boozy milkshake.”

“If you are on your way home from wine-trailing, hungry close to Taughannock Park, this is a staple. The Pinesburger is famous (for a good reason.) And fish fry is solid. They offer other specials as well, and it is quite cozy with good service.”
