Annandale-on-Hudson and environs
- Adam Stephanides
I will probably be driving up to Bard College, in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, sometime in the next couple of weeks. Are there any not-to-be-missed places in the vicinity or on the way?
Thanks for the tips. I wound up eating at Terrapin, mainly because I saw a free paper with an ad for it which had directions, and I remembered seeing it recommended in the April thread. It was good, though I wouldn't make a trip from NYC just to eat there. The best dish I had was a special of gnocchi with locally-grown chanterelles and foie gras in a sage cream sauce.
Nothing overwhelmingly exciting but some nice places: in Tivoli Stoney Creek always feels good to be in and the food is often good; Thursday nite is a good time; not too crowded and good wine discounts; ask owner Peter Seidman to recommend...He really knows and enjoys wine. There's also Cafe Pongo - more crowded and smaller portions and better quality would be better, I think. In Rhinebeck - Opus 40 has good word of mouth. Cripple Creek is very good and very NYC'ish. Le Petit Bistro pleasant; Across the river in Kingston -
