A fantastic menu, and this is my favorite bar in Corning.
As you might expect, there are a good amount of theatrics during the cooking. Various utensils seemed to narrowly miss my face (I sat to the chefs side; that seems to be the danger zone). First the rice is cooked. Eggs are broken. Knives are flying. Fires are set. They must pay a lot for insurance.
Declamente’s is awesome and you should be there right now. It’s a popular lunch spot, but it always feels like it should be busier for dinner hours. The food is great. Their Portions are big. You can eat on a budget. And the atmosphere is nice.
Old World Cafe (1 W. Market St, Corning, NY) is my staple lunch spot in Corning. Located smack-dab in the middle of Market St (in Centerway Square), you really can’t miss it. On a weekday lunch hour, it is swarming with locals looking to grab a homemade sandwich and cup of soup.
