Finger Lakes Foodie

Available year-round, excluding holidays, Wednesday through Sunday, at 5:00 p.m. or 8:00 p.m.

This package includes an exclusive, extended tasting and conversation with our dining room manager on locavore trends and Finger Lakes specialties, and a bottle of olive oil from our favorite Finger Lakes source, F.
