They changed menu everyday (?) as we saw there was printed date Sep 30th on the menu. It was really hard to have all the ingredients for the menu and figure out what to present everyday. A must-try place in Ithaca. When we arrived at 6:30pm Sat evening, the receptionist told us there was a 30~45-min wait - which was accurate. So we hung around the Apple fest nearby and returned. So many tapas on the menu that our party of 4 ended up having 10 and 2 desserts to share! Spicy shrimp was a must. Local Summer Squash was refreshing, and White and Portabella Mushrooms was amazing. For entrees we chose beef sausage. Even though we were 100% full with tapas and entrees, we still couldn't stop our spoon for Warm Banana-Bourbon- Pecan Bread pudding and Almond Brown Butter Cake with Red Currant Poached Apples and Whipped Cream! Also there was wine flight (5 samples for Chardonnay etc.) on their wine menu and a couple next to us were sharing their 10 glasses.
This was one of the best dining experiences of my life! I sat at the bar and had the local flight of wine and found a new favorite. I ordered the brie, greens, duck leg, and pots de creme. I ate every bite. It was all I could do not to suck the bones of the tender duck, and I'm not sure what they do to their greens but they were the right balance of tender and crisp, and garlicky. I tried to fit in going again the next day but I couldn't. I will return again!
Very nice local menu- cauliflower gratin, Trout with summer squash, braised chicken over mashed potatoes, garlic shrimp, were just some of the items  we tried. Wait can be long so suggest getting there early. Wine list covered a wide variety of pallets. Would have preferred a little more local choices but if you're looking to get exposure to wines from Spain, France, South Africa- great selection. So nice to not see a menu loaded with California wines. Definitely worth stopping in.
