Dine LOCAL

There is no shortage of eateries in the Finger Lakes region and you need only to choose what locale best satisfies your appetite.  The many towns and villages offer cozy taverns and bistros. Explore the wineries for cafes to gourmet wine and food pairings.  
Your passion may be relaxing at a local bar or pub to catch the big game or enjoying a peaceful dinner cruise on the waters of one of the lakes.  Many restaurants in the area prefer to use locally grown fruits and vegetables whenever possible and support the local “farm to table” programs bringing you fresh, healthy and delicious menu options.
