SecureSpace Self Storage has a staff that loves two things: helping customers choose the best storage unit and food. Today, our New York staff dishes out on the best places to eat in Corning. Their top seven picks below.
Hand + Foot
69 W Market St, Corning, NY 14830-2526
Hand + Foot was founded in 2014 as a low key establishment to get away from technology and feed your craving for food, fun, and family. With a menu that changes frequently, you will never run out of options at this reasonably affordable New York eatery. You can expect things like shaved pork, fried rice, and goat cheese and cherry pistachio salads.
21 W Market St, Corning, NY 14830-2616
Open Tuesday through Saturday
The Cellar is located downwind of the Chemung River and offers a vast selection of wine by the glass or by the bottle. It’s an imaginative fusion of modern cuisine and classic tastes that will satisfy your need to feed, especially if you’re worn down and hungry from filling up your self storage locker. Choices range from Ramen to swordfish to pork belly to burgers, and don’t miss the walnut cranberry apple crumble or seasonal cocktail menu.
Old World Café And Ice Cream
1 W Market St, Corning, NY 14830-2680
Open Monday through Saturday
W. Market St. is the place to be if you want to grab a bite to eat or if you need an injection of ice cream energy before you head to your storage unit. Old world Café And Ice Cream offers a fine selection of gifts and, you guessed it, ice cream. Each creamy confection is made locally by the Hersery Ice Cream Company, and flavors change often. Old World Café also offers a full menu that includes lots of lunch options, specialty salads, and grab and go selections.
Three Birds Restaurant
73 E Market St, Corning, NY 14830-2708
Open Tuesday through Saturday
Three Birds is a hip establishment with a simple menu that offers only the finest dishes in each category. The Aukra Salmon is a local favorite, but don’t count out the 12-ounce NY strip. Bar food more your speed? Check out their upscale selection, which includes chicken wings, potstickers, and bacon bourbon chicken on top of a rotating martini and seasonal beer selection. Make a reservation as Three Birds stays busy.
37 E Pulteney St, Corning, NY 14830-2208
Open Tuesday through Sunday
For a genuine Southern experience from a family-owned restaurant that’s proud to bring Texas-style barbecue to New York, visit Slammin Jammin. If you’ve just moved to the area from the South, you’ll get your nostalgic fix of home here. Depending on where you have your self storage locker or storage unit, you may even be able to have your barbecue fix delivered via DoorDash.
64 W Market St, Corning, NY 14830-2527
Hours and days vary by location
What do your storage unit and the best Irish pub in New York have in common? Probably not much, but you can certainly visit both if you’re looking to be productive. You’ll be productive at your self storage locker by putting your things away and you’ll be productive at Mooney’s by tasting a bit of Ireland in New York State. This is not a flashy spot, but it’s family-friendly and offers everything from fish and chips to cabbage and corned beef.
Market Street Brewing Company
63 W Market St, Corning, NY 14830-2526
Opening days and hours vary by season
With a full menu that can easily take you from appetizer to desert, Market Street Brewing Company is the place to go when you have a hunger and you don’t know quite how to fill it. After 5 PM, you’ll find less of a bar menu and more of an upscale eatery with chicken Cordon Bleu, pork chops, and shrimp pasta. And if you have a sweet tooth to satisfy, you can’t beat the lemon berry marscapone cake or the NY style cheesecake.
That’s it for the top seven restaurants as recommended by our New York-based staff at SecureSpace Self Storage. If you don’t see anything that quite appeals to you here, feel free to ask about other options!
