A busy kitchen scene with a server holding plates ready to go out to the tables

Local, seasonal, and sensational seems to be the M.O. of this popular Seneca Lake restaurant, which has a relatively small standard menu, but a seemingly endless list of daily specials. 

Naples, NY

Roots Cafe in the evening

Start with a big friendly old purple house, add a flair for local foods and Finger Lakes wines and beers, pile on the culinary eclecticism, and you have the Roots experience. There is live music once a week, and you are right next door to Inspire Moore Winery

otto tomatto's

Italian food galore!

Warfields Clifton Springs

Steak, seafood, pasta, and other upscale Euro-centric cuisine are at the heart of this quaint village restaurant. The English Garden patio is an especially charming venue for al fresco dining. Be sure to order dessert from Warfield's famous bakery.
