All the fun you’ve been having in Ellicottville this summer is sure to have you working up an appetite, and if you’re hungry for a selection of the best foods around, be sure to swing by the annual Taste of Ellicottville Aug. 12-13.

The Taste of Ellicottville lines the streets with representatives from all the top restaurants, serving up their fare cafe-style. Purchase tickets at the centrally-located booth, then exchange those tix for everything from apps to sliders to desserts and much more. Food item tickets are $1 each and restaurants will charge 1-5 tickets for each dish.

Radio personalities will judge each restaurants signature dish in front of a live audience. A cooking demonstration and competition will have your mouths watering and anxious to try the recipes out at home.

Participating restaurants include: Balloons, Bike & Bean, Cadillac Jack’s, Centerplate, Dina’s Restaurant, Dina’s at the Mont, Ellicottville Brewing Company, Finnerty’s, Gin Mill, Katy’s Cafe, Katy’s Catering, Madigan’s, Monroe Street Brick and Brew, Seneca Allegany Resort and Casino, Silver Fox, Subway, The Tee Bar, Tim & Bonnie’s, Villaggio and Watson’s.
