Welcome to Tasting Binghamton!
The purpose of this site will be to provide critiques of local restaurants and bars in the Greater Binghamton (NY) area. My wife Megan and I hope to provide insightful reviews on a variety of different establishments and cuisines.
We hope to give balanced opinions on places we've liked and disliked and to point our readers toward local food options away from the chain restaurants on the Vestal Parkway. Occasionally, as travels take us around Central New York, we may review some places we've enjoyed in nearby cities like Ithaca or Syracuse.
One thing you need to know: we aren't food critics in the traditional sense. We are not particularly well-versed in the finer points of fine dining. Unless we're throwing down $80 for a nice dinner, we really don't care about cloth napkins and fancy presentation (although such things can't hurt!). We want good food with good service, plain and simple.
Thanks for visiting!
