For those familiar with Cornell and Ithaca

Recommended Posts

My son is competing in a tournament at Cornell this weekend.  I have never visited the area and am looking forward to spending some one on one time with my son.  Are there any locally owned restaurants in the area that you would recommend we visit?

 

TIA.

No because I spend all my Ithaca time at Wegmans and hiking (but bump!)

 

We did eat at a Turkish place that was in a sort of strip mall-ish unpretty place--the food and restaurant were great (though almost all of it spicy).

Taste of Thai on the Commons is our favorite. Delish, if you are into that. (We are vegan, so I can't comment on the meat dishes...)

 

Is your son into TKD? My dd is taking pictures at that tourney this Sun. 

 

Good luck to him!

Thanks for the restaurant rec and well wishes.  He is playing in a tennis tournament.

A couple of fun "Big Red" things to check out:

Cornell Chimes Concerts in McGraw Tower... if you get there a few minutes early and walk up the 161 steps you will be rewarded with an amazing view of the campus and city, as well as a close-up look at a unique instrument and the person or people operating it.

 

And if you do happen to stop by for a chimes concert, pop in next door to have a peek at the Andrew Dickson White Library - it is a beautiful, magical little library!

 

Another restaurant rec: I completely forgot The Moosewood ! Aside from delicious food, it has the added bonus of being located in an awesome building that houses Ithaca Guitar Works and a phenomenal used bookstore. If you go to Moosewood you must order the chocolate cake for dessert. So good!
