For All-American Food by Seneca Lake
- FLX Wienery
New York is known for being an icon for America, but what happens when you dig deeper into the state? You find FLX Wienery. You read that correctly. Wienery, not winery. The restaurant is in Dundee, near Watkins Glen and Geneva. They offer a wide range of American favorites from house-made brats to hand-ground burgers.
Their locally sourced menu also includes gluten-free and vegetarian options. Looking for a little buzz? Spiked milkshakes are the move. You can also choose from a unique beer and wine list. FLX Wienery has it all, but, if you’d like to go on a tour exclusively for wine tasting, head to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail or Cayuga Lake Wine Trail.
