So I'm traveling through Ithaca and everyone says, "Go to Moosewood." Usually when people tell me to go somewhere and I do it, I'm underwhelmed.............not this time. Excellent service. Excellent food. And Dennis' ice cream is to die for.

I've been eating at Moosewood since it opened in the 1980s. I recently stopped by when I was in town for a late supper. Soup, bread, and a salad--all were delicious, and just what I was looking for. Great place for vegetarians and vegans, of...More
