      I believe most of the restaurants are in Dutchess & Ulster counties.

      1. re: moosesocks

        Are Columbia County restaurants participating?
        On the HV Restairant week website, Columbia County is not listed and does not appear on drop down menu. Does anyone know what's up with that?

          You may wish to follow-up w'CCCoC.

          BTB/BTW You fell into the same "trap" I did. this is a rather old thread. ;>)

          1. re: MisterBill2

            Perhaps down here. But as the link indicated, that County's seemed to be later on in the year at that time; Monday, September 24 through Friday, September 28

            And perhaps you should have waited until the other party answered my reply to him.

          The north end appears to be Hudson -- Mexican Radio.
          CIA is participating!

          1. re: NYchowcook

            St. Andrews Cafe at the CIA $26 dinner menu (from their website):

            - Cream of Mushroom Soup
            - St. Andrew's Garden Salad with Raspberry-Walnut Vinaigrette
            - Morel and Asparagus Risotto

            - Herb Marinated Grilled Chicken Breast (with Spicy Apple Chutney, Whole Wheat Spaetzle, Red Pepper Coulis)
            - Pan-Seared Salmon (with Edamame Soy Beans, Shiitake Mushrooms, Orange-Soy Glaze)
            - Smoked Ham and Provolone Panini (with Tomatoes and Basil-Mayonnaise, Served with Potato Salad)

            - Apple Raisin Crisp
            - Cheesecake with Seasonal Fruit
            - Trio of Sorbets

        3. they have a quite a few in Westchester

          1. So I have reservations at Monteverde (wanted to try it and their regular menu is too pricey for me), Valley (in Garrison) and the Kittle House (have not been there in a while and $26 for dinner is too good to pass up).

            I was thinking of trying one for lunch.. any suggestions from the list that are not too far from Yorktown?

            I got the Monteverde menu and it is very limited, just 2 soup/salad choices, 3 entrees and 2 desserts. And the sheet they sent me also had their $65 dinner next to it. The other places did not have a menu to send.

            Also, if you pay by AMEX at 2 locations, you are entitled to a free subscription to The Valley Table. See the website for details (you need to mail something in with the receipt copies).

                  Thanks so much for responding. That sounds great!

                    Here is Monteverde's $16 lunch menu:

                    Pumpkin Soup

                    Local Greens with Goat Cheese Croutons and Balsamic Vinaigrette

                    Local Free Range Chicken with Cross the River Potato Puree, Brussels Sprouts and Glace de Poulet

                    Hudson Valley Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream

              2. The only place at the CIA thats participating is St. Andrew's Cafe.

                There's an article in the "Line" section of today's Journal News about this. They have a picture of some Skate that is being served at Valley. There's a mushroom ravioli pictured on the cover that looks great, but it doesn't say where it's from (hopefully Valley as well since I have reservations there!).
