Where to Eat, Drink, and Debate the Birthplace of the Ice Cream Sundae in Ithaca – Behind the Scenes

I wrote an article this past Friday for the Village Voice about one of my favorite places in the world: Ithaca, NY. You can check out most of the amazing things I ate here: Where to Eat, Drink, and Debate the Birthplace of the Ice Cream Sundae in Ithaca

For some other awesome eats that ended up on the cutting room floor, keep reading:

The BoatYard Grill, named for its location next to the boat docks on Lake Cayuga, is a perfect place for outdoor dining and sunset watching. The seafood is decent, but for a real treat, get the sizzling cookie served on a hot skillet and topped with banana ice cream.

Backyard Bakeshop is another stellar stand at the Ithaca Farmers Market for both sweet and savory baked goods. Pictured here: a roll stuffed with cheddar and artichoke served warm, raspberry chocolate shortbread, and apricot pecan shortbread. Get there early if you want a crazy huge, fresh-baked cinnamon roll.

While I already mentioned both Collegetown Bagels and Ithaca Bakery in the Village Voice story, I didn’t get to talk about their pizza bagel, which deserves its own article. While these are nothing like the puny, limp Bagel Bites of your youth, they’re still just as good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Or if you’re in college (or back in Ithaca pretending to be like I was), they’re also good at 2AM.
