First established alongside the Red Newt Cellars by Debra Whiting in 1998, the Red Newt Bistro has always celebrated the region’s best farmers—and without patting themselves on the back for it too much. The winery gained early acclaim as one of the top Riesling producers in the Finger Lakes. After Whiting passed away in 2011, the Bistro has morphed into a friendly counter-service operation under the direction of chef Jeremy Personius, with modern comfort-food favorites ranging from a kale Caesar salad to kimchi grilled cheese and griddled mac-and-cheese with ham, bacon, or pickled peppers. With a wood-burning stove and cozy interior, it’s welcoming in all seasons but especially inviting in the winter.
Our entire menu is prepared from scratch in our kitchen, mostly from local FLX products from just down the road.
Come in, relax by the fire and enjoy the afternoon while enjoying the view from INSIDE where it is warm and cozy.Full Menu served Daily
