Moosewood Restaurant in downtown Ithaca, NY opened up in 1973 in a converted high school. When The bookstore cafe that had been there closed, the owners gave Therese Tischler the money they had left saying, 'We're giving this ($1200) to you because we know you'll find something good to do with it.' She wanted to open a vegetarian restaurant and went to Judy Barringer and Kris Miller with the idea. About a year later Moosewood opened its doors. It won a James Beard Foundation 'American Classic' Award in 2000. While they are most known for vegetarian cuisine, their menu does feature a daily fish entree.
