Corning’s only outdoor dining and music venue, Market Street Social, will open on Friday, May 14th (service begins at 4 pm) with an exciting Launch Party from 6 pm to 9 pm featuring a complimentary concert by Corning’s acoustic duo, Ampersand Project, covering everyone’s favorite hits, as well as a special food and drink menu featuring favorite hits from the kitchen including customized margaritas. To add to the excitement, the opening celebration also will feature a variety of drawing giveaways from the house, things like charcuterie boards, Finger Lakes wines and beers, and more. Located in the heart of the historic Gaffer District outside the Radisson Hotel Corning, Market Street Social will thereafter welcome guests (weather permitting) every Wednesday through Saturday through Memorial Day, transitioning to seven day a week service thereafter for the remainder of the summer season. Live music nights, aptly named Market Street Social Live, will take place twice a week, on Thursday and Friday evenings, beginning on May 14th (check the hotel’s FB page for the schedule) and running through at least the end of the summer. Beginning in June, Radisson will also bring its popular Music & Mimosas brunch concept outdoors to Market Street Social, with live music complimenting ala carte brunch specialties from 11 am to 2 pm every Sunday through the end of the season. The culinary team led by Food & Beverage Director Ken Knowles offers a seasonal menu highlighted by freshly made salads and internationally inspired, small plates conducive for sharing. The kitchen incorporates locally sourced Finger Lakes ingredients, wines, and beers whenever possible. Located between the hotel’s north and south buildings on Market Street just steps away from Corning’s shops and museums, Market Street Social is a unique outdoor dining and drinking experience set in a casually-chic atmosphere.
