Milkstand Just Skims the Surface of What’s to Come in Ithaca

When I first arrived back in Ithaca for the fall semester, I drove down North Meadow Street and was surprised to see a bold white sign outside one of the many strips of businesses, proclaiming “HIRING — ALL POSITIONS.” I did a double-take, then did a little research and learned about a new restaurant called Milkstand that was soon to open. It doesn’t take long for news of a novel food establishment to spread around Cornell, and I quickly overheard the name “Milkstand” on the daily. This past week, I finally got a chance to check out the new spot, just a few days after its opening.

The daytime Italian food at Lodi, Ignacio Mattos’ new cafe next to Rockefeller Center, is all recommendable. It’s a restaurant particularly perfect for people who freak out about high-quality ricotta and olive oil with creeping bitterness, or anyone smitten with the excellent but simple-seeming cooking style of Cafe Altro Paradiso or Estela. Lodi works equally well for Midtown citizens who have begged the NYC gods for a place to eat a trio of anchovies, butter, and peppers, or fennel-pollen-sprinkled porchetta on a crusty baguette made with grains milled in-house.

When I was living at home, I always knew when the Mid-Autumn Festival was around the corner because my grandma would come home from the Asian supermarket with fancy looking tins of packaged mooncakes. I would hungrily search through the tin, wondering which cakes had my favorite fillings, ready to dig in.

A Walk at the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve

After four years studying marketing and writing at Ithaca College, there’s still so much in town I want to explore. Between the gorgeous nature trails and exciting events, I’ll likely never run out of things to do in Ithaca, but I’m determined to make the most of my last year and the first place I visited was the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve. While I’m not much of a hiker, I do enjoy spending time in nature, and the Preserve offers a quick, easy way to get a fix of the outdoors.
