It seems like no one has started a thread, so I’ll do it (and I must say that I am pleased to find this site). Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is coming up in March. The list of restaurants is on their site:
Campagna at the Bedford Barn is participating for dinner this year, Monday-Thursday (the website says Sunday as well, but it’s wrong). The Inn at Pound Ridge claims to be doing early dinner but I haven’t checked to see if it’s correct (last time the site also said this and was wrong). We had a very unpleasant experience at The Inn last time. We went for lunch and my daughter asked to have her entree leftover packed up and was told that they could not do it because it was a special priced meal. Fortunately someone came over and said that they would do it before I managed to find a manager to complain to. Still, it left a base taste in my mouth and I wouldn’t go back. It was one of those things that make me understand why many people hate Restaurant Week. Fortunately, we’ve had much better experiences at most of the places we’ve eaten at over the years.
We’ve had great HVRW experiences at North, the CIA (American Bounty and Bocuse), X and X2O, Cafe of Love, Crave, Valley, Crabtrees Kittle House and The Cookery.
They changed the HVRW website this year and not for the better. It’s much more difficult to find what days restaurants participate and if there are any exclusions, you need to click on the restaurant link to see what they are (and find it on the cluttered page). I predict that many people click on the link (especially when there is an Opentable link to make reservations on the main page) and will show up on days that the restaurant is not participating and be angry. I would love to hear from others on whether they agree.
