In this show, we head west to Seneca Lake for a visit with the guys behind Finger Lakes Distilling to discover how they're turning the best all-natural Finger Lakes fruits and grains into artisanal spirits, including their elegant Vintners Vodka and the Seneca Drums Gin that has already found a small following among local cocktail connoisseurs. And we've got a very nice Finger Lakes Distilling hat to give away to one lucky listener!

We're also checking in on the bounty of new fruits and summer vegetables that are appearing at the Ithaca Farmers' Market, and our latest restaurant review takes a look at one of the more unique pizza options in town at Italian Carry Out. Plus we have updates on breaking restaurant gossip and news of local foodie events on the way.

Geographical Faceoff: South Hill

I gather that the unique style of Italian Take Out pizza would make you prefer it over the nearby Big Al version. But I bet that you might like Big Al's meatball sub better (at least I did)!

Five Guys Burgers & Fries hopes to open in Ithaca by Sept. 20th! Location not yet confirmed, but they're hiring:

Thanks for the date information! Aren't they locating in the Ithaca Shopping Plaza (Meadow St. and Elmira Road), on the end next to Meadow St.? There's quite a bit of construction going on there that I was surmising was FGB&F.

Here's an article that mentions "222 Elmira Road". I think this is the same location.



Hi D.E. -
Re: 5 Guys location, we saw the same article you link to, but we've learned not to be too definitive until all the evidence is clear. However, we're also keeping our eyes on that Ithaca Shopping Plaza location, and we're looking forward the franchise adding a unique new dimension to the Ithaca burger scene!
