We’re ringing the dinner (and lunch) bell to alert all you locals, day-trippers, leaf peepers, connoisseurs, and craft-beer tippers to the be-all-end-all event happening here in the Hudson Valley—Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, November 1st-14th.
For two solid weeks, we’ll literally be eating our way through the captivating Hudson Valley, indulging in the best 100+ restaurants have to offer. Yep, there’s a culinary revolution going on in the HV, and now is the time to experience the diverse cuisine, farm-to-table fabulosity, and epicurean expertise that’s redefining dining here.
From November 1st-14th, participating restaurants will offer special, three-course dinner menus for $35.95. Many will also offer 3-course lunches for $25.95. (Not including beverage, tax, and tip). This season, restaurants may also offer their prix-fix menus as a take-out option. Find the list of participating restaurants and make reservations (strongly encouraged), here. Note that restaurants may not offer their HVRW menu on certain days.
