By popular demand, I am creating the thread here even though there is a discussion already on the other board.
Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is back! I had planned to be in Asia for all of March and miss it, but thanks to the Coronavirus I will be around for (mixed blessing, I guess). It seems like a lot of places have their menus out early, which is a pleasant surprise. Maybe the new management at Valley Table actually said something to restaurants this time.
Last time, we had a great meal at Maria in New Rochelle and will be returning. Also enjoyed The Cookery, as usual. I did not enjoy my meal at Dubrovnik, but my wife enjoyed hers so I guess it was just what I ordered. If you’re further north, we had a really nice meal at Ship Lantern Inn up in Milton (Ulster County).
Here’s the list of places they’re showing as new to HVRW on the website (https://www.valleytable.com/hvrw/restaurants). Some have participated in the past (like Parlor and Village Social). Cookied & Co.'s menu is up and looks interesting. They are also adding 3% for kitchen staff a la David DiBari and there menu looks a bit similar to his places although I don’t think he has any involvement. I’d like to see Willow’s menu, although it is quite a trek up to Rhinebeck. Also of note up there is Gigi, which I don’t think has ever participated before.
