Welcome to Central New York’s Dining Mecca! Ithaca and its surroundings reportedly have the most restaurants per capita of any area in the United States. We’re not surprised! But we’re pleased to say that food in this area excels in quality, not just quantity.
We’re in the midst of migrating over from our old site. Feel free to check http://dining.14850.com/ for our dining directories and reviews that haven’t moved yet.

This week, we're contemplating the idea that brunch may be the best invention ever. That hybrid of breakfast and lunch, served at a civilized hour, perhaps with a cocktail, and certainly with a cup of coffee, is a relaxing treat for a weekend or even a midday indulgence on a weekday. [...]
Here at 14850 Dining we love a good brunch, so it's nice to see a favorite local restaurant add brunch to their repertoire. That's what happened this spring with Bandwagon Brewpub in Downtown Ithaca. [...]
