Our Story

Known for our unique plates-to-share and creative martini menu, The Cellar started as a wine and tapas bar in August 2007. Then, in September 2011, we expanded into a full-service restaurant offering modern fusion cuisine.

In July 2015, long-time executive chef Michael Lanahan and his wife Ellen purchased The Cellar from its original owners. This is when our establishment became a destination restaurant, providing unique dining experiences in downtown Corning’s Gaffer District.

Meet Our Team

The Chef

Using his passion for creating dishes that are unlike any other, our New York restaurant owner Michael Lanahan works in our kitchen as the executive chef. And with the help of the rest of our kitchen staff, Michael aims to design specialty-tasting meals made from locally sourced ingredients.

The Servers

Our team of servers is always ready to make suggestions based on your personal taste or entrée selection. Behind our bar, our exceptional bartenders are constantly creating original martinis and cocktails, that feature house-made infusions and seasonal ingredients. They excel at putting their own twist on traditional favorite beverages.
