The Red Newt

The Red Newt is one of our favorite restaurants on the east side of Seneca Lake. Winemaker David Whiting and Chef Brud Holland invite their guests to enjoy exceptional wine and innovative cuisine in the tasting room and bistro. Their menu of Finger Lakes cuisine changes every three weeks.

The Bistro is now OPEN!!

Though it is cold and snowy (rainy?) outside, it's cozy and warm at the Newt.  Thursdays are Winelovers' night (any bottle of wine half price with dinner) and Fridays are Bistro-Made Pasta Night!  There's not quite anything like freshly made pasta, especially the way that Deb does it.
As always, their wine bar features 24 wines by the glass and in thematic wine flights.  So stop on by and relax at the Newt.

You may view their current menu here, or download a printable menu at Red Newt Menu (pdf).
