IT: Best Art In A Restaurant
We almost feel bad about rating a restaurant for its art and not its food… but the Moosewood has always had accolades for its vegetarian cuisine. So it’s OK to single out that it also has a fine gallery, typically stocked with some of the best local art in Ithaca. Typically two or three artists are showing at once, since wall space is so plentiful. Shows stay up for a month at a time.
Laura Branca, co-owner of Moosewood, sends a thank you to voters, saying, “It’s no surprise to us that we have classy customers with such excellent taste and appreciation for the finer things in life!”
Ned (Aneda) Asta manages the Moosewood art exhibits and wants the many artists in the area to know she’s on the lookout for young blood, people that take chances, and art with an edge.
