Emily Martini named a few of her favs. “My favorite part about Binghamton is the food, and the restaurants here are unique. I don’t see restaurants like Lost Dog or Number 5, or especially Whole in the Wall, anywhere else. I think the variety of food in Binghamton is what makes it such a cool city.”
Burger Mondays' egg rolls are the next big thing
John Lampitelli’s favorite restaurant is Burger Mondays. The cheesesteak eggrolls are his favorite. “I get that every time I’m there," he said. See what other mouth-watering treats there are at Burger Mondays!

After some deliberation, Lucy Lin picked The Chatterbox as her favorite. Lin said, “I went last Restaurant Week with my housemates. The whole place was really lit up, around Christmas time, so the atmosphere was really nice, and the food was amazing! I had never thought to go in before, but I would totally go back!”
